Story Highlight

The very first iHeartRadio Music Awards took place in LA yesterday (1st May), and It was definitely a good night for Rihanna.

One of the other winners was Pharrell who was presented with the Innovator Award. Miley Cyrus, Lorde and Avicii were also among the list of artists picking up awards.
