The fourth annual iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday, March 5, will feature live performances and first-time duets and collaborations by today’s biggest artists, including Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, The Chainsmokers, Shawn Mendes, Thomas Rhett, Noah Cyrus and Big Sean, who join already announced performer Bruno Mars.

Hosted by Ryan Seacrest the event will air live on TBS, TNT and truTV at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from the historic Forum in Los Angeles and will broadcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide, as well as on the iHeartRadio digital music platform.

“The biggest artists in music show up each year,” said Seacrest. “iHeartRadio reaches hundreds of millions of people across the country every day, so this is an opportunity for the fans to have a voice in who’s the best and brightest, and the artists, in turn to show their appreciation. It’s always a lively celebration and an evening of special performances and appearances.”

“2016 was an incredible year in music and the iHeartRadio Music Awards will not only recognize the amazing artists of the past 12 months, but celebrate their success, creativity and innovation,” said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Group for iHeartMedia. “As a pop culture icon, Ryan Seacrest is a known champion of great music across our radio stations nationwide. We’re thrilled to have him as our master of ceremonies.”

“This is the one night where fans can not only hear the songs that defined the last year in music, but also discover what is coming right out," said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “This will be a night of live performances and once-in-a-lifetime collaborations that will carry fans into the new year of music."

Drake leads nominees with 12 nominations, including Male Artist of the Year, while The Chainsmokers received 11 nominations, including the inaugural Best New Pop Artist category.
