Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran Among Winners At 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

The 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards were handed out in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Cardi B kicked off the show with a medley of her tracks and a guest appearance by G-Eazy. The first award of the night went to The Chainsmokers, whose "Something Just Like This" was named Best Collaboration.

Ed Sheeran performed "Perfect" from Melbourne, Australia, immediately after winning Song of the Year for "Shape of You." 

Taylor Swift won Best Female Artist, and accepted the award via video message, before premiering her video for "Delicate."

Canadians didn’t fare so well.

Alessia Cara lost Female Artist of the Year to Taylor Swift and her Zedd collaboration “Stay” was beaten in the Best Collaboration category by “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. It did, however, win Dance Song of the Year.

Theory of a Deadman’s “Rx (Medicate)” lost Rock Song of the Year to “Run” by the Foo Fighters.

Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd lost Male Artist of the Year to Ed Sheeran. The Weeknd also lost R&B Artist of the Year.

Drake, who had one nomination, ended up empty-handed.

There was one Canadian on stage, though – Bon Jovi guitarist Phil X, who hails from Toronto, performed two of the band’s classics ahead of Bon Jovi receiving the Icon award.
