Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Ella Mai were the big winners at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday night (14Mar19).

Brit Ella came away with a triple, sweeping the R&B categories, while Ariana picked up the Female Artist of the Year and Pop Album of the Year honours, and Taylor was also a double winner, landing the Tour and Video of the Year honours.

There were also double wins for Maren Morris, Zedd and Grey’s The Middle, which scored the night’s Song of the Year and Dance Song of the Year awards, Imagine Dragons, Panic! At the Disco, Marshmello, J Balvin, and Cardi B.

The night’s performance highlights included Ariana Grande’s pre-taped performance of Needy, while Marshmello, Lauv, lovelytheband, and Ella Mai performed a medley of their hit singles, and Innovator Award recipient Alicia Keys won over fans when she introduced her eight-year-old son, Egypt, and brought him onstage as she sang new track Raise a Man.

“This is the man that I get to raise,” she beamed as her kid joined her at the piano.
