Niecy Nash-Betts look sophisticated chic alongside her wife Jessica Betts at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Monday. 

The 53-year-old star — who went viral for her emotional Emmys win — stunned in a monochromatic jumpsuit as she held hands with her partner for the red carpet arrivals at the the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Looking every inch the glamorous Hollywood actress, Niecy dared to impress with her unique ensemble, as the plunging neckline and long train added a dramatic effect to her appearance. 

Jessica, who she wed the Reno 9-1-1- star in 2020, kept it modern in a colorful striped jacket and matching pants as she made sure Niecy didn’t trip over the train while posing for the shutterbugs.

The adorable pair were joined by a cavalcade of stars, including Jared Leto, Jelly Roll, Tori Spelling, JoJo Siwa, Rachel Leviss and more.

Niecy’s red carpet show came shortly before she took the stage to present Ice Spice with the Best New Artist Award. 

The iHeartRadio Music Awards appearance comes after the Scream Queens star was praised for her powerful and inspiring acceptance speech after she won the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie for Dahmer. 

Niecy and Jessica – who originally met online in the spring of 2016 – renewed their vows on August 29. 

The couple surprised many when they tied the knot, with Niecy announcing their marriage on social media in August 2020. 

Niecy has been married twice before her union with Jessica. She was previously married to Don Nash from 1994 to 2007, with whom she shares 31-year-old son Dominic and daughters Donielle, 28, and Dia, 23.

After her divorce, she remarried Jay Tucker in 2011, but they later divorced in 2019.

Niecy was one of the many celebrities on hand at the iHeart Music Awards to honor the artists and songs who were most played on iHeartRadio stations and the app.

Ludacris will be hosting the celeb-packed affair, and Beyonce and Cher will be receiving awards recognizing their contributions to music. The Queen Bey will be awarded the iHeartRadio Innovator Award while Cher will receive the Icon Award.

Speaking with People about the awards show, Ludacris raved:  ‘When it comes to iHeart, it’s all about energy. It’s all about [viewers] seeing their favorite artists. It’s about blowing the roof off of this venue, man,’ he said. ‘I think that it’s just going to be fun because you have a great variety of people in here as well, so it should be good. And it’s right after Easter, so come on, man.’

He explained he was looking forward to the ‘variety’ the show had to offer.

‘I love that you got Jelly Roll on here, you got Lainey Wilson, you got Justin Timberlake. I’m not only hosting, but humbly speaking, I’m also performing. I just want to be a part of greatness. It’s so much talent, so much energy and so much stuff to look forward to — and some surprises as well.’
