The cast of Make It Pop had an amazing weekend attending the 2015 Nickelodeon HALO Awards together, and they told us all about the experience when we caught up with them in New York City! Megan Lee, Louriza Tronco, Erika Tham, and Dale Whibley each recalled some of their memorable moments from the awards show, which honors inspiring kids for making big changes in their communities – and even shared a few unexpected fashion mishaps that occurred on their way to the event.
"[Putting together outfits for the red carpet] was quite rushed, but I think it turned out pretty fun," Erika dishes to TWIST exclusively. "We all love putting together looks and working with a stylist, but on my outfit, they had sewn this hardware onto my shirt, and the second I got out of the van to go walk the carpet, it broke! The chain just snapped! We were fixing it last minute, taping it on. It was very stressful, but it came together and nothing fell apart on the carpet or during ths show!"
"If you want to know a little secret, they had to sew me into my dress on the night of," Louriza shares. "[After the show] I was just running around in my apartment trying to get it off for like a good ten minutes."
Fashion craziness aside, all of the stars were so impressed with the event.
"It's cool that Nick does this, it's a very important event," Dale says. "There are a lot of awards shows to recognize artists for their achievements, but it's cool to bring artists to recognize kids for the good that they're doing. It's a smart and needed thing."
The cast were even part of the event itself, which was something they found really memorable. "I really enjoyed co-hosting, we've never done that before," Louriza tells us. "It was kind of a surprise when we all found out, and to be a part of the actual show and meet kids at the same time was so fun."
"It was incredible and really fun," Megan adds. How awesome!
