Celebrating music with one of the biggest nights of the year, the brightest artists of this generation attended the jampacked iHeartRadio 2017 awards on Sunday, March 5, at the Forum in Los Angeles, California.

Taking home the coveted Innovator Award, Bruno Mars recounted his humble beginnings in his acceptance speech.

“I do this all for you guys. You guys make me want to be a better songwriter, a better performer, a better entertainer. Innovator is a very heavy word [and] I’m so honored,” the four-time Grammy winner continued. “It’s a little ironic for me because I genuinely feel like I’m just getting started. So, buckle up. I don’t know where we’re going yet but we’re going — keep up!”

Other big stars like Justin Bieber, Adele, Justin Timberlake, among others, made it to the winning list. Below is the complete record of the victorious artists last night.
