iHeartRadio Music Awards WINNERS 2015!
The 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday. Gossip Cop has full list of the winners updated live throughout the ceremony. See below!
Now in its second year, the iHeartRadio Music Awards honor the best artists and the biggest songs in 11 different categories. The awards cover many genres, including country, hip-hop/R&B, dance, and alternative rock. There are some typical categories, like Best New Artist and Best Collaboration, but also some out-of-the-box honors, such as Best Lyrics, Best Fan Army, and a Renegade award.
The top category is Artist of the Year, which has Taylor Swift competing against Sam Smith, Luke Bryan, Iggy Azalea, and Ariana Grande. Interestingly, only Smith is also nominated for Song of the Year, earning a nod for “Stay With Me.” The other contenders are Pharrell (“Happy”), Meghan Trainor (“All About That Bass”), and John Legend (“All of Me”).
Justin Timberlake will be following in the footsteps of Pharrell as the recipient of the night’s most special honor, the iHeartRadio Innovator Award. Pharrell was the inaugural winner last year. Who else will take home a trophy this time around? Check out the winners below!
