LL Cool J To Present & Perform Live At 2022 iHeartRadio Music awards
Jason Aldean, John Legend, Megan The Stallion and more will also take to the stage in Los Angeles on March 22.
LL Cool J is on the list of artists set to take the stage at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards. The star will join six other artists of all genres performing at the annual event on March 22 in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Lopez is also part of the entertainment line-up, and she will also receive the 2022 Icon Award. LL Cool J will juggle both performing and hosting duties. Their performances hadn’t previously been announced, but were widely expected. LL and J.Lo collaborated on a pair of big hits – “All I Have” (No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks in 2003) and “Control Myself” (No. 4 in 2006) — but there’s no word if they’ll perform together here.
Other stars performing for the audience will include Jason Aldean, Megan Thee Stallion, John Legend, Charlie Puth and Maneskin.
The 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards will air on March 22 from 8-10 p.m. ET (live) and PT (tape-delayed) on Fox. The event also will be heard on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and on the iHeartRadio app.
Now in its ninth year, the iHeartRadio Music Awards will celebrate the most-played artists and songs on iHeartRadio stations and the iHeartRadio app throughout 2021, while also offering a preview of the upcoming hits of 2022.
Justin Bieber is the only artist with two hits nominated for song of the year. He is in contention with “Peaches” (featuring Daniel Caesar & Giveon) and “Stay,” his collab with The Kid LAROI.
Executive producers for the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards are Joel Gallen, for Tenth Planet; and John Sykes, Tom Poleman and Bart Peters, for iHeartMedia.
iHeartRadio listeners have the opportunity to decide winners in nine categories. Fan voting will determine this year’s best fan army, best lyrics, best cover song, best music video, the social star award, favorite tour photographer, TikTok bop of the year and the first-ever TikTok songwriter of the year and best comeback album. Social voting began on Jan. 27 and will close on March 15 at 11:59 p.m. PT for all categories.
