Last night Tuner had a dream. A dream where Rihanna, P!NK, Usher, and Green Day shared a stage. There were flashing lights, thousands of people and … Ryan Seacrest? Wait, this can’t be a dream, it must be time for the second annual iHeartRadio Music Festival!
The aforementioned artists, as well as Mary J. Blige, No Doubt, Calvin Harris, Bon Jovi, Lil Wayne and VH1 Behind The Music subject Ne-Yo are among the 20 superstars set to hit the stage over two nights at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. And luckily for you, dear readers, VH1 will have insider access to the entire event. If Taylor Swift makes a surprise appearance during Green Day’s set (hey, crazier things have happened), we’ll be there with a first-hand report. Trust us, it’ll almost be as good as being there!
In addition to great musical acts, iHeartRadio has also called in favors with a few of the most talked about personalities this year. New X Factor judges Demi Lovato and Britney Spears will each be on hand as presenters. Olympic hunk Ryan Lochte,who’s made no secret about his love for Lil Wayne, will introduce one of the bands (jeah!); and funny lady Kathy Griffin will, hopefully, offer biting commentary about the performers and the eclectic Sin City crowd. It really will be a dream come true!
