Actor-singer Jamie Foxx will host the awards ceremony, which takes place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on March 29. “I’m so excited that Jamie Foxx is taking the reins at this year’s iHeart awards. He is the perfect choice to lead this extraordinary night of music and celebrity artists!" said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment (via Business Wire).
Both Azalea and Smith are among the nominated artists with five nods apiece, including Artist of the Year. Other nominees include Beyonce and Chris Brown with three mentions each.

Usher participated in a musical tribute to Michael Jackson, while K.Dot saluted his hometown of Compton with a rendition of Tupac Shakur's classic song “California Love” and a subdued rendition of “m.a.a.d. city.”
