Frontman Alex Gaskarth took to the microphone first to thank everyone on behalf of All Time Low.
“Thank you so, so much, wow, I had so many things prepared to say and then J. Lo performed and now it’s all gone, but no, thank you iHeart,” Gaskarth said. “Tom, Lisa, our team, our families, our friends, the fans, most importantly the fans. We’ve been a band for almost 20-years now, we started in high school, so it feels incredible to still be up here doing this and receiving this award, surrounded by so much talent in one room. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Blackbear then thanked his team, family, wife and their two sons.
“I just wanted to say… I have a couple thank you’s. Thank you to my brothers in Christ, All Time Low, and my amazing fans of course, I wouldn’t be anywhere without you. My fiancée’s here, Michelle, she just had a baby four days ago and she’s here. Our two son’s Midnight and Morrissey, Samantha, my manager, my brother TJ, all the stations at iHeart who made this song the longest charting song on alternative radio of all time, so thank you to the fans one more time.”
