Cardi B to Perform, DJ Khaled to Host at 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

The 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards are getting a heavy dosage of the two biggest personalities in hip-hop. On Thursday (Feb. 1), it was announced that Cardi B will be performing at this year’s iteration of the awards show and that DJ Khaled will host alongside model-actress Hailey Baldwin.

Other acts taking the stage at the awards show include Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth and the Backstreet Boys. Cardi’s found herself in some ultra-famous company, but make no mistake: in 2018, she’s pretty much as big as any of those acts.

Riding the success of “Bodak Yellow,” and a guest appearance on Migos’ “MotorSport,” Bardi’s been everywhere since the latter half of 2017. Earlier this week, she appeared in a commercial for Amazon’s Alexa.

On the other hand, we have DJ Khaled, who’s adlibs and knack for putting together the biggest artists in hip-hop earned him a couple platinum plaques last year. We’ve got a feeling he has even bigger things in store for 2018, and hosting the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards is definitely one of them.

The awards show will take place at the Forum in Los Angeles on Sun., March 11, and it will air on TBS, TNT and truTV at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST.
