iHeartRadio Music Festival

At the iHeartRadio Music Festival on Saturday in Las Vegas, the biggest names in music today performed some of this year’s biggest hits. Meghan Trainor was there, as well as 5 Seconds of Summer, Lorde, Iggy Azalea, Eric Church, Paramore and One Direction. Weezer also performed a 5-song set.

Calvin Harris was Saturday night’s headliner at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Ryan Seacrest introduced him. He got the audience pumped up, and blasts of steam shot from the stage. Harris had an amazing light show he put on to accompany the music. Two of the songs he performed are Summer and a new song, which he debuted that night, Blame, sung by U.K. soul singer John Newman.

In the 2-song set Meghan Trainor performed, she was introduced by actress Hilary Duff, and she wore a black dress and began by sitting on a stool for her first song. But then, when she sang her hit, All About That Bass, she got up and danced along with other dancers as she sang the hit that brought her to the attention of America. The 2-song set follows.

Lorde’s performance was another highlight of Saturday night. She was introduced by Sophia Bush. Lorde put on a great show. For some reason, she bent over and flipped her hair back a lot. She had on black and white pants and top and bangles on her wrists, as well as dark red lipstick. When Lorde sang Royals, the feeling in the audience was electric and many people sang along with her and did the refrain. It was “a different kind of buzz,” in the words of Royals. She had them in the palms of her hands. Her entire set follows.

5 Seconds of Summer are one of the biggest boy bands around. They had the women at the iHeartRadio Music Festival screaming and proclaiming their love of certain band members. Most people in the audience were holding their smartphones up trying to record them. One song that they did was a cover of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream. The entire set follows, and all of these videos are courtesy of the bands and acts as well as YouTube and iHeartRadio.

Iggy Azalea definitely put on an all-out performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. She wore a pink, black and purple outfit with stylish black boots. She was lightning-fast with her rapping. He background dancers had on sexy black-and-white costumes. DJ Whiz Kid was also on hand to lend background vocals to the songs. The Fancy singer rocked the night out!
