iHeartRadio Music Awards 2021 Recap, Performances, and Winners

What a night!

The iconic Usher hosted as one of music's biggest nights brought us moment after moment of good times. It almost feels like the world is back to normal...

The duo we love in collaboration – The Weeknd and Ariana Grande – opened the night with "Save Your Tears." The crowd couldn't get enough. Some of the biggest winners of the night included Roddy Ricch, 21 Pilots, and BTS but none more than The Weeknd, who took home some of the most coveted awards.
