The first-ever iHeartRadio Music Awards brought together the biggest names in entertainment to Los Angeles to celebrate all things music.  The innovative all-new awards show presented by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment paid homage to the City of Angels at the historic Shrine Auditorium on Thursday (5/1).

Broadcast live on NBC, and on Clear Channel radio stations nationwide and the iHeartRadio digital music platform, Los Angeles lit up as the music of the iHeartRadio app came to life at the inaugural iHeartRadio Music Awards.  The show featured performances by recording stars Blake Shelton, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Pitbull, Shakira, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Ariana Grande, Luke Bryan, Arcade Fire, Ed SheeranBastille and Usher in a world premiere performance of the new Michael Jackson song "Love Never Felt So Good."

An innovative highlight of the show featured the music world's top stars telling their "L.A. stories" -- what brought them to and through Los Angeles and how it helped make their careers.
