The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards are here, with the biggest stars in music converging Sunday evening on the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, California — a classic venue that hosted the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards as well, after the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles played host to the first two editions of the lavish awards ceremony.
The 2017 iHeartRadio Awards ceremony will feature live performances from top stars including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Ed Sheeran among other mega-hit makers.
Former American Idol emcee Ryan Seacrest will make his debut as host of the iHeartRadio show, taking the slot from Jason Derullo.
Other stars scheduled to perform live at the iHeartRadio show include Big Sean, Thomas Rhett, Labirinth, and — in her awards show debut, 17-year-old Noah Cyrus. Yes, that's the younger sister of superstar Miley Cyrus, and big sis will be on hand as an awards presenter at the ceremony.
The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards live stream is scheduled to get underway at 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Sunday, March 5 — 8 p.m. Eastern Time — at the Great Western Forum — also known as The Fabulous Forum — in Inglewood, California, a city just south of downtown Los Angeles.
