Demi Lovato is set to make an appearance as a presenter at the first annual iHeartRadio Music Awards, which will take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on May 1, 2014. NBC will telecast the three-hour show (which is presented by Clear Channel Entertainment) on May 1 at 8 p.m. EDT/PDT. NBC and the iHeartRadio Music Awards made the announcement on April 21, 2014.

In addition, Lovato received a nomination for Best Fan Army for her group of devoted fans called Lovatics. The other nominees in the category are Ariana Grande's Arianators, Lady Gaga's Little Monsters, Austin Mahone's Mahomies, Rihanna's Rihanna Navy and Taylor Swift's Swifties.

Noticeably absent from the list of nominees is One Direction, the world's biggest-selling act to emerge from "The X Factor." One Direction (whose fans are called Directioners) was completely snubbed and did not get any nominations at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Through online voting, the public was allowed to vote for the finalists in the awards show's categories.

According to an iHeartRadio Music Awards press release: "The iHeartRadio Music Awards is taking a groundbreaking approach to the award show format, offering viewers live performances, storytelling and an intimate atmosphere. In addition to performances at the glamorous-tabled show at the Shrine, the event will also feature artists playing the stages of some of Los Angeles’ most iconic venues from The Roxy to the Hotel Café. The event will highlight the music world’s top stars in taking over Los Angeles telling viewers their 'L.A. story' — what brought them to and through the City of Angels and how it helped make their careers.

"Blake Shelton, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Pitbull, Shakira and Thirty Seconds to Mars. Other performers from the telecast include Ariana Grande, Luke Bryan, Arcade Fire and Ed Sheeran. Those set to make appearances include Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Steven Tyler, Imagine Dragons, Chris Martin, Lorde, Lovato and more."

Lovato was a judge on "The X Factor" U.S. in 2012 and 2013. In December 2013, she quit the show at the end of the show's third season because she said she wanted to focus on her music career. Fox cancelled "The X Factor" U.S. in February 2014.

Lovato's "Neon Lights" North American tour took place in February and March 2014. The opening acts were "X Factor" alumni Fifth Harmony (on all tour dates), Little Mix (on select tour dates) and Cher Lloyd (on select tour dates).

Frankly Chat and Clear Channel co-hosted "iHeartRadio Live With Demi Lovato" at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank, Calif., on April 14, 2014.
