AceShowbiz - The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival was undoubtedly one of the most star-studded festivities this year. It was held over the weekend, on September 23 and 24. Among the massive performers on Day 1 was Harry Styles. The 23-year-old heartthrob apparently took a little break from his world tour to treat the crowd at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to his five solo singles.
"I'm from England, hello," so he said while doing a silly jig onstage. He then jokingly remarked, "Bloody hell!" Although his set was quite short, Harry made sure to show off his new image as a rockstar. After performing "Sign of the Times" and "Two Ghosts", the singer urged fans to dance as he belted out his high-energy single "Only Angel".
Right after Harry, Coldplay took the stage to perform their hit "A Sky Full of Stars". The vibes were getting tender as the band's frontman Chris Martin delivered an emotional performance of "Fix You" as a tribute to victims of recent hurricanes. He moved thousands of hearts when he knelt on the stage while looking up to the sky during the performance.
Another performer who stole the night on Day 1 was The Weeknd. The Canadian crooner kept the vibes alive with his smash hit "Starboy" before performing two other tracks off "Starboy", "Party Monster" and "Reminder". In the middle of his set, The Weeknd told the crowd, "I came to Las Vegas to turn up tonight!" He then performed three more songs, "I Feel It Coming", "Can't Feel My Face and "The Hills", before wrapping up his set.
Day 2 provided twice the star power as it featured a number of huge names in the music industry. After Harry Styles rocked Day 1, his One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson wowed the crowd in the following day with his new solo single "Back to You". Rocking a white hoodie and jeans, Louis teamed up with Bebe Rexha to perform the catchy song.
Another One Direction star also took the stage that night. Folk king Niall Horan opened his set with a sweet ballad "This Town". He then belted out his most recent release, a breakup jam titled "Too Much to Ask", before treating fans to his biggest hit "Slow Hands". Niall announced that "Slow Hands" recently became No. 1 radio song, saying, "[Number] 25 for 6 weeks or something, and now we're at No. 1, it's crazy!"
Rocking braids, Ke$ha stole the night with a lively rendition of her new songs, "Woman" and "Learn to Let Me Go". She later showcased her vulnerable side as she performed "Praying" before bringing out a special guest, Macklemore, to join her onstage. They joined forces to perform their new collaboration, "Good Old Days".
Lorde injected the night with more excitement. Assisted by Khalid, the songstress belted out "Homemade Dynamite". She later invited Jack Antonoff to join her for a stunning piano-only rendition of "Liability". While she was excited to perform at the festival, Lorde admitted that it's been a while since she took the stage at the show. "I'm too young to gamble this is a strange town for a young goth," she told the crowd.
Sporting a glittery bodysuit, Miley Cyrus walked casually onstage while holding an acoustic guitar. To open her set, the former Disney star performed her new single "Younger Now", before making the live debut of recently-released track of her upcoming album "Younger Now", "Week Without You". She shared her excitement as the effort would arrive in a matter of days. Miley told the crowd, "It makes me the happiest I've ever been to share how I feel and speak the truth."
During her set, the singer also performed some of her classic hits, including "Party in the USA". Giving a deeper meaning to the song, she declared, "It's not a party in the USA if we don't equally justice, understanding, change, expression, kindness, opportunity. I won't stop fighting for every f**king single one of you."
DJ Khaled wrapped up the show in the most special way. After bringing out Travis Scott (II) to perform "Butterfly Effect" and "Goosebumps", the DJ surprised fans as Demi Lovato suddenly walked onstage and performed her new hit "Sorry Not Sorry" during his set. French Montana later joined in on the fun with a rendition of "Unforgettable".
