Get lost Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Woodstock: there’s a new epic concert in town! It would probably be easier to name who WASN’T at the iHeartRadio music festival this weekend in Las Vegas than try to tackle the luminous lineup. It’s seems like every big name in entertainment showed their face at the MGM Hotel to groove to the sounds of bands new and old. Lady Gaga ruled supreme (of course) with a hot show including special guest Sting. But the highlight of her set was the emotional tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14-year-old Gaga fan who committed suicide last Sunday after being tormented by bullies for his homosexuality. Have a tissue ready.
Some of the bigger acts also included Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Carrie Underwood, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, and we haven’t even scratched the surface. Even the Black Eyed Peas took a hiatus from their hiatus to perform! Check out the gallery below to see which of your favorites tore up the stage and lit up the red carpet!

The MuchMusic Video Awards went down last night in Toronto and we have to say that Selena Gomez is definitely the hostess with the mostess. Not only did she look super hot on stage, compering and performing, but she also got to hang with boyfriend Justin Bieber as he won “Ur Favorite Artist” and “International Video of the Year By A Canadian” (along with Drake). That’s really an award.
As we posted earlier, Lady Gaga‘s fake blue pubic fur may have been the show stopper, and she also emerged from an egg during the show as well. That’s a whole lot of “performance”, for which we’re certain Canada is most grateful for. Other than that, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev arrived hand-in-hand finally confirming what we’ve known for ages — that they’re a couple! An unexpected guest, but a very welcome one, was Colin Farrell too. We don’t know how he had fallen off our radar, but he’s back on for good now! Snoop Dogg performing, Bruno Mars crooning, David Guetta scowling, Avril Lavigne posing — it’s all there in our gallery below so take a look.
