Music fans will get to watch the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2018 live streaming online and televised show tonight as entertainers receive awards for their past year’s work. Everything is covered from the best of the best in multiple genres, to the best newcomers in hip-hop, R&B, Rock/Alternative, and Latin music. Hosting tonight’s show will be world famous DJ Khaled and model Hailey Baldwin. Here are all of the details on who’s performing, some top nominees, TV start time, channels, and how to watch the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2018 live streaming online.
As reported on Thursday via US Magazine, iHeartMedia made the big announcement that hip-hop star Eminem is among this year’s awards show performers. His latest hit album is Revival, while his latest hit track is “Walk on Water” featuring Beyonce. However, the legendary Eight Mile hip-hop star will team up with Kehlani to perform “Nowhere Fast” for the iHeartRadio show. Eminem will be amongst a star-studded lineup of performers that also includes Ed Sheeran, Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Maroon 4, N.E.R.D., and Bon Jovi.
While he may be performing tonight, the Detroit rapper doesn’t appear in any of the categories of nominees in hip-hop or elsewhere. This year’s Male Artist of the Year Award will be a battle between Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Ed Sheeran, and The Weeknd. In the Hip-Hop Artist of the Year category it will be DJ Khaled, Drake, Future, Kendrick Lamar, or Migos taking the award.
Fans will also see a brand music video unveiled by pop singer Taylor Swift. She’s also nominated for Female Artist of the Year and vying for the award against Alessia Cara, Halsey, P!nk, and Rihanna. There are also awards up for grabs tonight for Rock Artist of the Year, Dance Song of the Year, Latin Song of the Year, and Producer of the Year, among many others.
