Another big night in music last night as the iHeartRadio music awards took place, honouring all the biggest acts in music from the last year. Katy Perry graced another music award stage as she sang her latest single “chained to the Rythm.”
On the back of his latest album release on Friday Ed Sheeran also performed his latest singles “Shape of you ” and “Castle on the Hill”. Noah Cyrus, the younger sister of Miley Cyrus, performed for the first time at an award show with Labrinth, who features on her latest single “Make Me (Cry)”.
Some not to be missed moments include Miley Cyrus fangirling over her Little sister just before she performed, as she sported an “I heart Noah” t-shirt. Dj Khaled showed off his four-month-old baby boy and Chris Martin of Coldplay enlisted some younger fans to accept the award for Best Tour. The award is for the same tour coming to Croke Park this July, so Irish fans are in for a treat, but unfortunately it is sold out.
