The iHeartRadio Music Awards Swiftlist: What you need to know tonight
Are you ready to go, Taylor Nation?
The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards are taking place tonight, Sunday April 3rd, at the Forum in Los Angeles, California. The event will be televised live on TBS, TNT, and truTV at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT., as well as simulcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide, and on the iHeartRadio digital music platform. The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone is up for 8 awards from which she already won one, the Best Tour for the 1989 World Tour. Adele’s “Hello” already won Song of the Year. Here’s Taylor’s full list of nominations:
- t of thAlbum of the Year for 1989. Win!
- Female Artist of the Year. Win!
Song of the Year for “Blank Space”
- Best Tour of the Year for The 1989 World Tour. Win!
Best Collaboration for “Bad Blood”
- Best Meme-able Moment for “Blank Space” Win!
Best Cover Song for Alessia Cara Covering Taylor Swift. Best Fan Army for #Swifties
- Most Thumbed Up Artist of the Year. Win!
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s aware that the ACM Awards are also tonight, we still feel weird that we’re not covering country music awards anymore.
Another big question: When is that “New Romantics” video going to drop? Yes, I’ve heard a few people in social media rationalize that tonight’s awards would be ideal timing but so far, that remains wishful thinking. Wouldn’t iHeartRadio be publicizing it has that exclusive to get more viewers? No official word from 13 Management or the Sparkly Dressed.
Besides the iHeartRadio Music Awards, this Sunday is also the date for Canada’s Juno Awards, the ACM Awards, WWE’s Wrestlemania and the Walking Dead season finale. In Canada, Bell Media has announced the first ever broadcast of the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards on CTV for April 9. Seriously? When the awards are already a week old? Sigh. Guess they didn’t want to take any focus away from the Juno Awards.
