Could someone inform me of why "professional" music artist's use In-ears live?

Also, if someone could tell me wtf they do, that would also be great

P.S.
I googled, and I didn't understand anything I read.

In ear monitors. It lets them hear their instrument as well as the others mixed right so that they stay in time, etc. Monitors are usually found in the form of wedge shaped amps at the front of the stage.

Aah, ok. So In-ears are pretty much the monitors, but the sound goes straight in your ears, cutting out the crowd and such?

If so, how does the band hear the crowd and interact etc?

its basically a metronome and they go in the ear so you cant hear anything else

They usually set up mics to pick up the crowd and put that into the mix that is going out of the in-ear monitors.

well when you have headphones on, you can still hear outside of them. They're not completely noise-canceling.

quite a few people do use wedge monitors, and it's nothing like a metronome, although sometimes the drummer will have a click track piped into his.
