The iHeartRadio Music Awards Live on Fox
Grammy Award®-winning singer and songwriter T-Pain will host the 2019 iHEARTRADIO MUSIC AWARDS. The live, two-hour event airs Thursday, March 14 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The sixth annual iHEARTRADIO MUSIC AWARDS will also air live on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and iHeartRadio, the all-in-one digital music, podcast, on demand and live-streaming radio service.
In addition to having two Grammy Awards® and 60 hit songs, T-Pain released his new album, “1UP,” from Cinematic Music Group, the same day he was named winner of FOX’s THE MASKED SINGER, the season’s #1 new series. “1UP” has hit #1 on the iTunes Hip Hop charts and includes "Getcha Roll On," featuring Tory Lanez, alongside new collaborations with Lil Wayne, Boosie Badazz, O.T Genasis, Russ and Cinematic label mate Flipp Dinero. T-Pain kicks off his tour for the new album March 16. Last year, T-Pain launched the new Fuse TV series, “T-Pain's School of Business,” and hosted several episodes of Red Bull's live stream show, “Remix Lab.”
“The blessings keep rolling in. I am grateful and honored to host this year’s iHEARTRADIO MUSIC AWARDS,” said T-Pain. “The past two weeks have been incredible, and the run continues. Thank you to everyone for all of the love and support. A special thanks to the iHeart team and FOX for having me.”
The Award show will feature performances by Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Garth Brooks, John Legend and Kacey Musgraves, with more to be announced.
Taylor Swift will receive the iHeartRadio Tour of the Year Award for her Reputation Stadium Tour. With more than two million tickets sold in the U.S. and grossing $266 million, it is the highest-selling U.S. tour in history by any artist. The Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour broke Swift’s own record for highest-grossing tour by a woman. It was critically acclaimed for its cutting-edge, large-scale production value that gave tens of thousands of fans in attendance each night a rare and intimate glimpse at what makes Swift one of today’s greatest performers. The tour, which kicked off in May 2018 in Glendale, AZ, also traveled to Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia, and was made into a special concert film for Netflix. Swift will be in attendance to accept her award.
