Rihanna sweeps the first ever iHeartRadio Awards. The singer appeared in a lacy see-through dress to accept her four prizes, including song and artist of the year. Other big winners included Miami rapper Pitbull, who won for best collaboration with Ke$ha and Ariana Grande, who took home the iHeartRadio young influencer award. Country singer Blake Shelton picked up the prize for country song of the year for "Boys 'Round Here." The other big prize of the night included the "Innovator" award, which went to Pharrell Williams, who performed a medley of several of his hits from the past year. Highlights of the evening included several A-list performances, with the first single from late singer Michael Jackson's new album making its debut. Usher danced to "Love Never Felt So Good," originally written and recorded by Jackson in 1983, while video footage of the late singer appeared on large screens. Other performers included Ariana Grande and Colombian singer Shakira.
