This year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards are gearing up to feature performances from some of the biggest names in American music. Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line will be representing country music, and they will be joined onstage by their peers in the pop and hip-hop spheres. Iggy Azalea, Kelly Clarkson, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Nate Ruess, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Madonna, and Rihanna have all been announced as performers. Thus far, there is no official announcement regarding what songs the musicians will be performing.
Rihanna has taken to social media to express her excitement to take the stage, encouraging fans to tweet using the hashtag #iHeartNavy to spread the news. This will be Rihanna’s second performance of 2015, and there is much speculation regarding what the pop princess will be performing. She was joined by Kanye West and Paul McCartney for an impassioned performance of her current single “FourFiveSeconds” at the Grammy Awards, but it is possible that she will perform something else from her long awaited eighth studio album. Over the last few weeks Rihanna has been teasing fans by posting short snippets of tracks with the hashtag #r8 on her social media accounts.
This will also be Madonna’s second American performance in support of her Rebel Heart album. The pop star took the stage at the Grammy Awards for a performance of her current single “Living For Love.” After making waves at the Grammys Madonna headed overseas, where she has been promoting her album with a series of appearances. She was splashed across the news after suffering a serious fall during her performance of “Living For Love” at the 2015 BRITs Awards, but Madonna was able to get back up and finish the set like a true professional. Since then, she has announced that the album’s second single will be “Ghosttown,” which she has performed while in Europe.
The 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards will take place on March 29th at the Shine Auditorium in Los Angeles and will be hosted by Jamie Foxx. Sam Smith and Iggy Azalea, both of whom will be taking the stage to perform, lead the nominations with five nods a piece. They will be competing against one another in the Artist of the Year and Best New Artist categories. This year, the awards show will be honoring some interesting new categories such as Renegade, Best Fan Army, and Best Lyrics alongside more typical awards.
You can catch the iHeartRadio Music Awards show on NBC, where it will be kicking off at 8:00 PM ET or you can stream it on iHeartMedia systems. The show is meant to honor all of the biggest trends in American music over the last year. This will be the second year the show has been carried out.
