Awards season is in full swing and next up are the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 14th. This year's show is already set to be incredible and the festivities are heating up as the show is set to feature performances from some of the biggest artists in the world.
Additionally, Taylor Swift will receive the honor for Tour of the Year Award for her "reputation" Stadium Tour. Last year, T-Swift traveled across the world in support of her sixth studio album reputation, and the tour broke the singer's own record for highest-grossing tour by a woman with over 2 million tickets sold in the U.S. alone and grossing $266 million (it's the highest selling U.S. tour in history by any artist). And if you went to any of Taylor's "reputation" Tour dates or saw the Netflix special, then you already know all about her impressive stage setup and special effects.
Nominees for this year's awards were revealed last month on January 9th and artists who received multiple nominations include stars like Cardi B, Drake, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons.
Additionally, several honors will be presented throughout the night. Garth Brooks will be recognized with the first-ever iHeartRadio Artist of the Decade Award, while Alicia Keys will receive this year's iHeartRadio Innovator Award. And L'Oréal Paris and iHeartRadio will also present Halsey with the 2019 Fangirls Award, which recognizes a female artist who has pushed boundaries with her music and message while inspiring her fans around the globe.
Social voting for socially voted categories is going on now and will close on March 7th (March 13th for Best Fan Army presented by Taco Bell). Fans can vote via Twitter using the appropriate category and nominee hashtags, or by visiting iHeartRadio.com/awards.
The 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards takes place on Thursday, March 14th and will air live from the Microsoft Theater on FOX at 8pm ET/PT. The show will also be broadcast live on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and iHeartRadio. You won't want to miss it!
