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 star-studded celebration will feature songs by One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, Alessia Cara, Andy Grammer, DNCE, Elle King, Ellie Goulding, Fall Out Boy, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Nathan Sykes, Nick Jonas, OMI, Pentatonix, Rachel Platten, Tove Lo, and Walk the Moon.
And for some fun little bonuses, Jimmy Buffett will also be gracing us with a live performance from Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and Taylor Swift will premiere her new music video for Out of the Woods!

Coldplay is severely switching up their sound on their upcoming album A Head Full Of Dreams!
But the Speed of Sound performers also enlisted in the help of a much, MUCH younger diva — Blue Ivy Carter!?
That's right! While Bey was in the studio recording Hymn for the Weekend, the band recorded vocals from her three-year-old daughter! AH-Mazing!
But Blue isn't the only unexpected vocalist on the band's album — frontman Chris Martin's ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow is also featured on the track Everglow!
Wow! We guess Gweny and Chris really ARE on good terms after their "conscious uncoupling!"
Before you think this could be a sign for them to get back together, Martin put his kids and even current girlfriend Annabelle Wallis on the record as well. We guess he didn't want anyone to feel left out??
Find out how Blue Ivy and Martin's family sounds when Head Full Of Dreams drops on December 4!

This is a new side to them!
It looks like Coldplay is trying to redefine everything we thought we knew about them based on what we're seeing from their new image.
There were already rumors going around that the foursome from London were about to drop their seventh studio album, but they finally pulled the trigger on Friday and showed us the artwork for A Head Full of Dreams… and it's very different from anything we've seen before.
After everything going on in Chris Martin's life, we half expected brooding, moody music, but there couldn't be more color on their record! Or more stars!
But that's not all — in addition to announcing a release date of December 4, the band also dropped the album's first single, Adventure of a Lifetime!
Again, it's unlike any of their past songs, but we really think it works as a transition into a more modern sound.
Ch-ch-check out Coldplay's take on radio-ready pop music (below)!!!
