There's no way we could be this lucky... right?!

We heart the iHeartRadio Music Awards!
Unlike traditional ceremonies that honor music's best artists for their work, this show is all about "fan-fueled" entertainment.
Sure, the show has standard categories like Song of the Year and Artist of the Year, but fans can also vote for select categories socially — like Best Fan Army and Most Meme-able Moment! How fun!
If that doesn't sell you, the first scheduled performers for the third annual award show were announced on Tuesday, and they are none other Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor — who are both nominated, along with Taylor Swift, Adele, Sam Smith, and The Weeknd, to name a few!
Check out the full list of nominees and find out who wins when the iHeartRadio Music Awards air April 3 on TBS, TNT, and truTV (below)!!!
The Grammys are heating up this year as we've already heard a slew of AH-mazing artists who are set to hit the stage to rock our rocks off!
Not only will Ellie Goulding, Carrie Underwood, and Tori Kelly be singing duets with other artists, but the cast of Hamilton will be doing a number, and Pitbull is showing up with Travis Barker and Robin Thicke for a performance!
Well if that's not enough to make you tune in, we've got EVEN MORE incredible news as it was just announced that Johnny Depp will be taking the stage with Alice Cooper and their heavy metal group The Hollywood Vampires.
Johnny and Alice's group also includes
Ellie Goulding to the rescue!
Last month we told you the 29-year-old singer had a bit of a nightmare when she was crossing a frozen lake in the "middle of nowhere" in Norway with photographer friend Conor McDonnell. The pair were driving over the ice when their BV206 vehicle half-submerged — causing them to almost drown!
But fortunately, they made it out alive thanks to Miz Goulding's efforts!
In a new interview with Daily Mirror, the Burn singer revealed that she surprised herself when her natural instincts told her to save her friend instead of fleeing:
"I was more concerned about getting him out than myself and that really surprised me. It was scary. I feel like I learned something about myself in that kind of situation."
Um… yeah! We honestly have no idea what we'd do!
But one thing's for sure, we know we'd want Ellie around!

Aww! It sounds like Ellie Goulding has truly found "the one!"
Well, she didn't exactly go into details about their rumored split late last year, but Ellie did admit he won her over when they first met:
"When I met Dougie, he had no game. He was just like, 'You're really cool, let's go out.' It was me that pursued him, very unexpectedly. Before him, I was having a single period and hating all men, saying never again, after a series of things that happened to me. I thought I was going to be single for a long while."
Except that obviously all changed!
"But then I met him and was like, ‘uh-oh, game over.' He was just so nice. So, you know, you don't throw something like that away so easily."
Isn't that just the sweetest thing??
Though sadly Ellie's hectic life hasn't been as easy, especially recalling how drained she felt over the past year. She confessed:
"I don't know how I'm alive truly. The band and I are all dead. I had to pay for everyone to have IV vitamin drips. Can you believe it? Backstage at Alan Carr and we're all sat there on drips. The last month has been really testing, on everything. On my sanity, really. The music industry isn't like other industries – there are no rules about working hours. A working day will start with a 4am flight and finish at 3am the next day. Sometimes I don't have time to eat."
We really hope the blonde beauty can switch her priorities around.
Take care of yourself, girl!
