The best moments…

Probably No Doubt fans will never forget the show where singers Gwen Stefani and Pink teamed up to perform the cult hit "Don't Speak" together!

The culmination of the performance was their kiss ...

Later, in 2017, Pink surprised the audience again! The singer staged a spicy performance during the performance of the song "So What"!

That same year, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day smashed his guitar on stage in cold blood!

Sir Elton John's performance in 2013 can be described as the most exquisite and delightful! The cult hero of the British stage performed the composition "Tiny Dancer" in a very elegant atmosphere and manner: Elton John was dressed in a dazzling shiny suit, and he played the red piano...

One of the most energetic performances in the history of iHeartRadio was the collaboration of the singer Kesha (Kesha) and Joan Jett! Together they teamed up in 2013 to perform "Bad Reputation" and kick the ass...

In 2016, Miley Cyrus teamed up with '80s idol Billy Idol to perform the cult hit "Rebel Yell". Their joint performance turned out to be very driving, in a kind of rocker spirit ...

Youth idol Miley Cyrus is not the first time performing on the iHeart stage. She was part of the festival three times: in 2013, 2017 and 2019. Lately, this popular singer-songwriter has had a lot of trouble during her performances... It's all due to the pushiness of one of her fans, who is trying in every possible way to get closer to his idol. The situation was resolved by the singer's husband, Liam Hemsworth.
