This year, leading up to the show, Coke asked fans via Twitter to help create the new Coca-Cola AHHcade experience on the red carpet. Each week, fans weighed in on items they wanted to see featured in the AHHcade, such as the Coca-Cola polar bear, a Coca-Cola interactive vending machine and a vintage Pac-Man game for artists to sign that will be donated to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. The AHHcade will be unveiled during the pre-show and will be a highlight of the 2014 AMAs red carpet.
During the Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! @ The 2014 AMAs, fans also will have the opportunity to continue to influence the pre-show in real time. Chelsea Briggs, the official Coca-Cola AHHcade host and author of popular celebrity blog, Hollywire, will be tweeting live and allowing fans to have input into what she does in the Coca-Cola AHHcade. Follow @Chelsea_Briggs to help her create her AHHcade experience.
Fans will be able to view several areas live during the pre-show, such as the Coca-Cola Interview Lounge, the first stop for celebrity interviews on the red carpet, and the Coca-Cola AHHzone, a prime viewing area where sweepstakes winners can get up close and personal with their favorite celebrities on the red carpet. Celebrity hosts from all sectors of the music and entertainment world will get the latest Hollywood scoop from the stars themselves as they make their way into one of musics biggest nights.
The AMAs is such a unique awards show because it is so closely tied to the fans and that experience starts with the Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! @ The 2014 AMAs pre-show, said Jordin Sparks. All of the unique aspects of the pre-show really enhance the AMAs red carpet and Im thrilled to be a part of it again this year.
