At the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards show, women dominated the night’s most memorable moments.
Held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Thursday night and hosted by T-Pain, the awards show honored an array of performers, many of whom, including Cardi B, Ariana Grande and Drake, were absent from the telecast. However, the awards show brought together the likes of John Legend, Katy Perry, Elle Fanning and Maren Morris, among others.
Making a rare awards show appearance, Taylor Swift — wearing a purple paillette Rosa Bloom romper — was on hand to accept her awards for Best Music Video for “Delicate” and Tour of the Year.
