iHeartRadio Music Awards To Be Revealed Labor Day Weekend

iHeartRadio will announce the winners via a new digital format.

iHeartRadio has announced that they will hold their yearly music award show across social media, the iHeartRadio App, and iHeartRadio broadcast stations. Fans can hear acceptance speeches from their favorite stars on social media platforms such as FacebookTwitterInstagramYouTube, and Snapchat. Prestigious categories such as  Song of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Best Group/Duo of the Year and more are up for grabs.

The award show was originally set for March 29 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles; however, the pandemic forced them to change plans. Usher was expected to host with live performances from Halsey, Lizzo, and Justin Bieber.

The radio conglomerate, which probably owns your favorite local station, released the following statement regarding the event’s original cancellation in March.

As you may know, the Shrine in Los Angeles recently announced that it is officially closed for events through March 31 at the earliest — which includes the iHeartRadio Music Awards scheduled to air on FOX, Sunday, March 29. The safety of our guests, employees, artists and partners is our main priority. iHeartMedia and FOX will plan to reschedule at the appropriate time and will provide more information and relevant updates as they become available. Refunds are being issued to ticketed guests.

According to All HipHop, some of hip-hop’s biggest stars are vying for a 2020 iHeartRadio Music Award. Cardi B, Drake, Lil Baby, Meek Mill, and Travis Scott are up for Hip-Hop Artist Of The Year.
