LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Fox and iHeartMedia have announced the nominees for the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Following 2020's canceled live TV broadcast, this year's event will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on May 27.

The ceremony celebrates the most-played artists and songs across iHeartRadio platforms and will feature a new category, "TikTok Bop of the Year," to reflect the growing importance of the digital space in music. Nominees include "Blinding Lights" by the Weeknd, "Say So" by Doja Cat and "WAP" by Cardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion, among others.

"Blinding Lights" is also up for the ceremony's top prize, for which the Weeknd will compete against Post Malone ("Circles"), Dua Lipa ("Don't Start Now"), DaBaby and Roddy Ricch ("ROCKSTAR") and Harry Styles ("Watermelon Sugar").

"The iHeartRadio Music Awards is a true awards show recognizing the artists and songs fans have listened to and loved all year long," said John Sykes, iHeartMedia president of entertainment enterprises.

Fans will determine the winners of a slew of categories, including Best Fan Army, Best Lyrics, Best Cover Song, Best Music Video, the Social Star Award and Favorite Music Video Choreography Award. Voting begins today and ends on May 19 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
