Take a look at our favourite moments from day two of the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival below!

Justin timberlake brought out shawn mendes for the most iconic duet


Opening the second night of the festival, Justin Timberlake brought out a very special guest... Shawn Mendes!

Mendes joined Timberlake on stage to perform 'What Goes Around' with him and it was pretty incredible (to say the least).

During her set, Carrie performed some new music from her new album like "Cry Pretty" and her latest single "Love Wins," in addition to some fan favourites. However, it was after she sang "Last Name" that made us 'AWWW'. 

"My baby was kicking during that one. Baby likes you guys."

KELLY CLARKSON'S incredible tribute to aretha franklin


Kelly Clarkson hit the stage to perform a beautiful tribute for the late and great, Aretha Franklin. She performed the Queen of Soul's iconic hit, "Respect," with a tremendous amount of soul with a funky beat that would have had Franklin on her feet! Clarkson attributed her power and strength to the late singer, who she referred to as her "biggest inspiration." She even mentioned the fact that she wouldn't be where she is right now without the feminist anthem that got her on American Idol. 

logic and ryan tedder's adorable bromance


To close the Festival, Logic took the stage to perform his biggest hits, such as "44 More," "Everybody" and "1-800-273-8255." It wasn't until the rapper proclaimed his admiration for OneRepublic's frontman Ryan Tedder that we really felt the adorable bromance between the two.

"I want you guys to please give a round of applause for my buddy Ryan Tedder," he told the audience. 

lady gaga facetimed the audience to give two lucky fans tickets to the premiere of her new film

Lady Gaga sent us all her love, announcing how much she wanted to join us at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival. But, she wasn't just going to greet us and leave us. She's the queen of pop, remember? The star surprised two lucky audience members with tickets to the premiere of "A Star Is Born." 

The Late Ronnie Van Zant 'Performed' "Free Bird" With Lynyrd Skynyrd


On October 20, 1977, the world lost legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd singer Ronnie Van Zant when the plane he was on crashed in Mississippi. While the rocker's music has lived on, fans would never again get to see him perform live on a stage, but during Lynyrd Skynyrd's Festival set, they got as close as they could to once again playing with Ronnie.

As the group played an epic 12-minute long version of their classic song, "Free Bird," a silent video of Ronnie singing the track was shown on the giant screen behind them, synced up perfectly with his brother, Johnny Van Zant's singing. Skynyrd rocked the tune with Ronnie as if their late bandmate was standing onstage with them once again.
