Elton John, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift and BTS were among the 2020 iHeart Radio Music Awards winners.
iHeartMedia celebrated the winners of the 2020 iHeart Radio Music Awards with an on-air and social media special throughout Labor Day weekend on iHeart Radio stations nationwide, and the iHeart Radio App, the all-in-one digital music, podcast, on demand and live-streaming radio service.
The exclusive weekend-long special concluded on Monday, September 7 and unveiled winners in each category including Lizzo for Song of the Year, Billie Eilish for Female Artist of the Year, Jonas Brothers for Best Duo/Group of the Year, Taylor Swift for Album of the Year and more. The 2020 iHeart Radio Music Awards also honored Elton John with the Tour of the Year Award. In addition, the on-air and social media reveal featured acceptance speeches from this year’s biggest artists on iHeart Radio stations nationwide and on iHeartMedia’s social platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat.
The annual iHeart Radio Music Awards is a star-studded music event celebrating the most-played artists and songs on iHeart Radio stations and the iHeart Radio app throughout 2019. Given the new limitations on events during the pandemic, this year’s “live event” portion of the iHeart Radio Music Awards, originally scheduled to air from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Sunday, March 29 on FOX, was cancelled, but winners were officially announced on-air across the country and via social media over Labor Day weekend. The show is set to return to FOX in 2021.
iHeart Radio listeners had the opportunity to decide winners in several new and established categories. Fan voting determined this year’s Best Fan Army, Best Lyrics, Best Cover Song, Best Music Video, Best Remix, the Social Star Award, Favorite Tour Photographer and the first-ever Favorite Music Video Choreography Award. Proud partners of the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards include Bonobos, Geico and Taco Bell.
