IHeart Radio Music Awards

The iHeart Radio Music Awards 2015 showcased some of today’s hottest musical artists in an entertaining show hosted by Jamie Foxx. The awards show began with a performance by Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson Iggy was as sexy inmate, and Jennifer was a police officer. They sang Trouble, and the performance was a great way to start off the awards show. Then, Nick Jonas was led out in chains, and he sang the song Chains. Later on, there was a tribute to Justin Timberlake, and he was presented with the iHeartRadio Innovator Award.

The iHeart Radio Music Awards show’s host, Jamie Foxx, said “Marvin Gaye has the number one song this year featuring Pharrell and Robin Thicke.” Then, he said “Suge Knight will not be here tonight.”

Foxx said “Bruce Jenner will be on doing a musical performance. He’ll be doing a his and her performance all by himself.”

The iHeart Radio Music Awards award for the Song With the Best Lyrics was the first one presented. It was won by Blank Space by Taylor Swift. Justin got up at first to approach the stage, but then laughed and sat down, and Swift got up to accept the award.

Meghan Trainor sang a song, Dear Future Husband. She got the audience rocking, with a song that sounded sort of like a throwback 1950s tune.
