LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Organizers for the iHeartRadio Music Awards announced the nominees for the 2018 edition of the awards ceremony with Imagine Dragons, Portugal. The Man, and Judah & the Lion leading the charge.

Each artist received multiple nominations this year, including for best alternative rock artist, and best duo/group of the year. Breakout acts like Greta Van Fleet and Rag’n’Bone Man received competing nominations in the best new rock/alternative rock artist category.

Veterans like Metallica and Foo Fighters are competing against new acts Royal Blood and Nothing More for the title of Rock Song of the Year and Rock Artist of the Year.

Bruno Mars, Charlie Puth, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd all earned nods for best male artist, while Alessia Cara, Halsey, P!NK, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift are all competing for best female artist.

The awards ceremony will take place on on Sunday, March 11th at the historic Forum in Los Angeles with returning champion Ryan Seacrest serving as the host for the festivities.
