It's the YouTubeys!
On Sunday, November 3, YouTube will host the first-ever YouTube Music Awards, a celebration of music honoring the artists and songs that YouTube fans have turned into global hits over the past year.
And they have some major names helping them celebrate: Lady Gaga, Eminem and Arcade Fire, so yeah, we're impressed.
Unlike traditional award shows, this event will present performances by Eminem, Lady Gaga and Arcade Fire alongside other top artists and some of YouTube's biggest stars including Lindsey Stirling and CDZA.
The YouTube Music Awards will also feature musical events from Seoul, Moscow, London and Brazil, culminating in a live awards celebration at Pier 36 in New York City. Presented in partnership with Kia Motors Corporation, renowned filmmaker and music-video visionary Spike Jonze will be the creative director and acclaimed actor Jason Schwartzman will host the event with VICE Media and Sunset Lane acting as executive producers.
The YouTube Music Awards celebrate YouTube as the world's go-to destination for music. To celebrate this global music community, the YouTube Music Awards will be powered by the fans themselves.
In this first-of-its-kind event, nominations will be announced October 17 based on the videos that the world watched and shared over the past year, and judging will happen in full view as YouTube fans determine the songs and artists honored by sharing across social media.
So that's October 17 for the nominations to be announced and November 3 for the ceremony.
