2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards Adds Favorite Music Video Choreography As New Category

Sam Smith – How Do You Sleep? (Choreography: Parris Goebel)

(Los Angeles) – Buried at the end of a long list of nominees for the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards is the Favorite Music Video Choreography category which was “Socially Voted.” I assume this means based on social media responses in some form. In any case, it is a music award so we dancers don’t have to take offense at being recognized last. In fact, it’s great to see a new awards category for choreographers!

BLACKPINK – Kill This Love (Choreography: Kyle Hanagami & Kiel Tutin)

From the iHeartRadio announcement with the full list of nominees:

“The 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards are officially returning on Sunday, March 29th, and the nominees have been revealed! Taking place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the star-studded event we will celebrate all of the amazing music and talented artists over the last year.”

Normani – Motivation (Choreography: Sean Bankhead)

“The iHeartRadio Music Awards will honor the most-played artists and songs on iHeartRadio stations and on the iHeartRadio app throughout 2019, while also offering a preview of the upcoming hits of 2020. Featuring live performances from the biggest artists, as well as surprise duets and collaborations, this year’s show is one any music fan will not want to miss.”
