iHeartMedia and Turner Broadcasting announced the finalists for the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Tuesday.

Taylor Swift leads the field with eight nominations and will vie for the first "Female Artist of the Year" award, while The Weeknd received seven nominations, including one in the inaugural "Male Artist of the Year" category.

Other artists who have received multiple nominations include Adele, Drake, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Luke Bryan and Sam Smith. All nominations are listed below.

This year's ceremony will also feature performances by Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor.

Among last year's winners were Smith for Best New Artist, Jason Aldean's "Burnin' It Down" for Country Song of the Year and Swift, who won Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Lyrics.

This year, the iHeartRadio Music Awards will feature 31 categories, including new awards for "Best Tour," "Best Duo/Group of the Year" and "Latin Song of the Year," as well as individual awards for "Artist of the Year" in music's biggest genres.

"Our awards are not chosen by a mysterious panel of judges," said John Sykes, president of iHeartMedia's Entertainment Enterprises. "They are a true reflection of the artists and songs our listeners supported all year long."

For the first time ever, tickets to the iHeartRadio Music Awards are going on sale to the general public. As a signature sponsor of the event, Capital One cardholders will have the opportunity to purchase them first.

The show will be televised live on TBS, TNT and truTV at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on April 3 and will be simulcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide, as well as on the iHeartRadio digital music platform.
