Who You Will See Perform:
Special Honors of the Evening:
Taylor Swift Will Accept The Award for Tour of the Year
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. She will be accepting the award for this year's Tour of the Year.
This year's Innovator Award: Alicia Keys
Keys is being recognized for her unparalleled contributions to pop culture and social causes as an artist, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur and activist. With six critically acclaimed studio albums under her belt, last year she also launched She Is The Music (SITM), a nonprofit focused on driving equality, inclusivity and opportunity for women across the music community, which recently announced the launch of the largest global industry database for female creators and professionals. Alicia is also co-founder of the Keep a Child Alive non-profit organization, which partners with grass-roots organizations to combat the physical, social and economic impact of HIV on children, their families and their communities in Africa and India.
Garth Brooks Will Accept the Award for Artist of the Decade
Iconic country music superstar Garth Brooks will be receiving the first-ever iHeartRadio Artist of the Decade for his undeniable impact on the music industry. Brooks is the #1 selling solo artist in U.S. history, with more than 148 million albums sold and is the first-ever artist to be awarded seven diamonds by the RIAA for having seven albums certified with more than 10 million sales each. Among his endless list of accolades and career milestones, Garth was also recently named the inaugural inductee into the Live Music Hall of Fame and has been inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame, International Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Halsey Will Receive The 2019 Fangirls Award
Additionally, 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. The Fangirls Award presented by L'Oréal Paris celebrates the power of women coming together in support of other women and is inspired by L’Oréal Paris' deep-rooted belief in the inherent worth of every woman, encourages fans to show their support and appreciation for women – and artists – who inspire and empower them. Halsey embodies all of these ideals by using her voice through her incredible music and championing causes she passionately believes in, which includes disenfranchised youth, women's rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. Last year's inaugural iHeartRadio Fan Girls Award went to Camila Cabello.
