Four-time Grammy champ Lenny Kravitz will be hosting this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards, and previously told PEOPLE he was "thrilled" about the gig as he intends to "celebrate the best in music."
"As always, the show will feature some great surprises and unforgettable performances that music fans across the country won't want to miss," he shared earlier this month when he was announced as the host.
Kravitz is no stranger to award shows, having previously been invited to the Grammys, Billboard Music Awards, the MTV Video Music Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and more as a nominee or winner. Kravitz also has presented before, specifically at the 2000 VMAs when he told his daughter Zoë to "go to bed" while he was handing out the award for best hip-hop video.
This year's show has a solid lineup of performers as well, including everyone from Pink to Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban and Latto.
Additional performances will include those from Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Muni Long, Cody Johnson and Coldplay.
On top of announcing performers earlier this month, iHeartRadio also revealed that in addition to her performance, Pink, 43, will receive the 2023 iHeartRadio Icon Award, "honoring her impact on pop culture, longevity and continued relevance as a touring and radio force with a loyal fan base worldwide," per a press release.
Who's nominated for awards?
The list of nominees at this year's show is even larger than that of those performing!
Artists with multiple nominations this year include — but are certainly not limited to — Anitta, Bad Bunny, Beyoncé, Drake, Justin Bieber, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Machine Gun Kelly, Måneskin, Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Doja Cat, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd.
Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, GloRilla, SZA and many more also celebrate having more than one nomination at this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards. The bigger categories, including song of the year and artist of the year, boast 10 nominees each — with Lizzo, Taylor Swift, Jack Harlow, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber and Doja Cat appearing in both categories. A full list of nominees can be viewed on iHeart's website.
