Idina Menzel Performs ‘Holiday Wishes’ in NYC

Idina Menzel

The holidays have never really been Idina Menzel’s favorite time of year. During an intimate concert for iHeartRadio Live in New York last Thursday, the Tony Award-winner and voice of Elsa in Disney’s juggernaut Frozen recalled how, when she was fifteen, she learned on Thanksgiving morning that her parents were getting a divorce. She remembered the turkey getting thrown in the garbage, the potatoes being tossed down the drain, and MORE

Fifth Harmony is Here to Slay so You Better (Together) Start Paying Attention

Fifth Harmony

Let me preface this piece by saying that I have been a Fifth Harmony fan since they were LYLAS singing “Impossible” on The X Factor. I was lucky enough to meet them at an MTV event before the VMAs and they couldn’t have been sweeter. This past Thursday, I attended the launch of Nick Radio to see the girls perform and got to speak with Camila for a short moment as she took a pee break. Ally even waved from the stage. I could totally be MORE

Photos: Katy Perry’s iHeartRadio PRISM release party!

Katy Perry

Last night Katy Perry christened the brand-new Los Angeles iHeartRadio venue in Burbank with a swanky release party for her new album, PRISM. The party was streamed live on Yahoo Screen but in case you missed out, the festivities will be televised this coming Friday (October 25th) on The CW Network at 9pm! I would have loved to been at the party last night but I can't complain at all since I'll be attending Katy's We Can Survive (presented by MORE

Miley Cyrus should maybe take some time off?

Miley Cyrus

Here's Miley Cyrus performing at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas over the weekend, where she starts having a breakdown (probably thinking of her ex Liam Hemsworth) on-stage while singing her new single, "Wrecking Ball." Just putting this out there, but ... yeah, Miley want to take some time off to actually process her life right now. That's not a judgment on her talent or her character, but girl's burning the candle at both ends here. It MORE

Selena Gomez shines for iHeartRadio

Selena Gomez

I should probably start this out by admitting something: I’m not the biggest Selena Gomez fan. It’s not that I dislike her, or anything. I mean, I saw Monte Carlo. I’ve listened to “I Love You Like a Love Song” here and there. I just wouldn’t go as far to say I identify myself as a Selenator or anything. But after seeing Gomez take the stage on Thursday, July 25 at iHeartRadio’s Coca-Cola Summer Concert Series in New York City, I MORE

Fall Out Boy does iHeartRadio!

Fall Out Boy

Last week Fall Out Boy took the stage at the iHeartRadio Theater presented by P.C. Richard & Son in lower Manhattan. The band is touring again, ending a four-year hiatus after the release of their last album 2008's Folie à Deux. "Put on your war paint," Patrick Stump started chanting while he and the rest of Fall Out Boy walked on to the stage before two-hundred screaming fans. They opened with a thunderous performance of their new song MORE

NKOTB do iHeartRadio!

New Kids On The Block

Last Thursday night New Kids on the Block took the stage at the iHeartRadio Theater presented by P.C. Richard & Son in lower Manhattan. They have been in New York promoting their new album 10 (iTunes), their first album since 2008's The Block which was released after a 14-year hiatus. It was a very intimate show, for just a handful of dedicated fans. And these weren't ordinary fans. They were the kind of fans that line up outside of venues MORE

SXSW Music Review: iHeartRadio’s showcase!


Last Tuesday night kicked off the music portion of SXSW and PopBytes spent the evening at iHeartRadio's showcase at The Main in downtown Austin. Thanks to the folks at iHeartRadio we were treated with VIP access, complimentary high fives and awesome tunes. There was a line wrapped around the corner and the venue was already swamped with avid fans. DJ Skee was pumping out the beats in between sets by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Atlas Genius and MORE

Inside Jewel’s iHeartRadio show!


Last week Jewel serenaded a handful of fans to a special hour-long set in lower Manhattan at the iHeartRadio Theater presented by P.C. Richard & Son to celebrate the release of her Greatest Hits album. Eleven albums recorded over an eighteen-year span, with over 27 million of them sold is an incredible feat. Her catalog was yearning for a greatest hits compilation, so 2013 was a good year as any for a Jewel retrospective. After a brief MORE

Conor Maynard does iHeartRadio

Conor Maynard

Conor Maynard performed his first show in New York City last week at the iHeartRadio Theater in the lower west side of Manhattan. Thankfully, PopBytes was invited to this intimate performance presented by P.C. Richard & Son and lived to tell about it. Often referred to as the "UK Justin Bieber," Conor owned the stage he performed on last Tuesday night. Underneath all of the lights Conor sang his little British heart out and the audience of MORE

The night I became a Bruno Mars fan …

Bruno Mars

PopBytes was invited to attend a special intimate performance by Bruno Mars at the iHeartRadio Theater earlier in December. I walked into the theater on the lower west side of Manhattan as a casual listener of Bruno. Little did I know I would leave a Bruno Mars fan. The small venue was filled with people of all ages. Industry-types, gays, and moms with their ten-year-old daughters. I had no idea that his fans would cross generations and gender MORE

Alicia Key’s intimate concert for hurricane Sandy responders and volunteers

Alicia Keys

On the day of her fifth album’s release, there’s only one place Alicia Keys wanted to be: home. A native New Yorker, the R&B singer celebrated Girl On Fire hitting shelves by performing one of the most intimate concerts of her career in Manhattan’s lower West Side. Keys took to the stage at the iHeartRadio Theater presented by P.C. Richard & Son to honor Hurricane Sandy first responders and volunteers. And in a token of MORE
