iHEART RADIO MUSIC AWARDS: RED CARPET VIDEOS PLUS TAYLOR SWIFT WINS BIG!

Press Pass LA was at the Shrine Auditorium this afternoon for the 2nd Annual iHeart Radio Music Awards hosted by Jamie Foxx with performances from some of music’s biggest stars!

It was a hot one- both the red carpet and on stage!  We spotted talent including Taylor Swift, Iggy Azalea, Chris Brown and more walking the red carpet and enjoyed performances by Rihanna (in a neon green fur coat), Meghan Trainor (dressed as a sultry sailor), and Jason Aldean…literally in a ring of fire!

The evening honored Justin Timberlake with the Innovator Award and saw winners including Sam Smith (Best New Artist) and Taylor Swift (Artist of the Year). The winners were determined by iHeart Radio charts and fans nationwide. The show was directed by Hamish Hamilton of Done + Dusted, the production company which also produced the show.
