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!
