The 2017 iHeartRadio MMVAs just went down and they don’t call it Canada’s hottest night in music for nothing!

Joe Jonas and Alessia Cara hosted the massive block party live from outside of Much’s home-base in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Imagine Dragons, Lorde, Iggy Azalea, DNCE, Camila Cabello, Niall Horan, Post Malone, Julia Michaels, Arkells and Jazz Cartier all took the stage and delivered electrifying performances.

Riverdale’s KJ Apa, Shay Mitchel of Pretty Little Liars, Brandon Flynn of 13 Reasons Why, Kat Graham of The Vampire Diaries, Scream Queens’ Keke Palmer, and Canadian sweetheart Shenae Grimes-Beech were among the screen stars to walk the red carpet and present awards throughout the night.

These celebs and many more graced the halls and the media room backstage at the MMVAs, and I’ll be posting interviews and photos of those stars soon. For now, you’ll find a complete list of this year’s nominees and winners below.
