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).

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.
