It was a record-setting night at the historic Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles at the first-ever iHeartRadio Music Awards!

As you scroll down, I'll take you behind the velvet rope of the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet, plus backstage in our iHeartRadio Music Awards broadcast studio powered by Sprint.

You can also check out amazing photo galleries featuring the Best of the iHeartRadio Music Awards, this incredible iHeartRadio Red Carpet gallery, and even more iHeartRadio Music Awards Highlights.


The afternoon started outside in the scorching heat on the red carpet.

The paparazzi were staying busy as superstar after superstar made their way into the air-conditioned Shrine Auditorium.

Twilight's Ashley Greene stopped by to chat with iHeartRadio On The Verge artist Katy Tiz and I before she escaped inside to present an award on stage.

Hilary Duff told us about some upcoming projects and also about her undying love for Lorde!

Adam Lambert filled us in on his upcoming tour with Queen and his soon-to-be released Greatest Hits album.

iHeartRadio Music Award finalist Bastille let us know that they would all be performing naked...

iHeartRadio Music Award WINNER Austin Mahone reiterated that he was single and ready to hear that, LADIES!?

We also gave each other a weird side-bro hug thing...

Before cheesing for the camera for a photo we could actually post...

Wait a minute...I've gotta tell my mom I'm three feet away from Mel B. aka SCARY-FREAKING-SPICE!

But first...

The lovely ladies of GRL stopped by just after they got done opening up the show with Pitbull to fill us in on their pre-show rituals.

Then the lovely and insanely-talented Ariana Grande rolled by just after performing her new single (featuring Iggy Azalea) "Problem" on stage to an electric crowd!

And last but not least, the one-and-only Shakira stopped by to say hello and give us an inside scoop on the making of her 10th album SHAKIRA!

What. A. Night.

Can't wait for next year!
