Eminem Added To Line-Up Of Performers At First Ever YouTube Music Awards
There are award shows for everything these days – video games, porn stars, “manly” things, “teen” stuff, comedy, stage plays, etc. Now you can add YouTuber to the list of music awards.
The first ever YouTube Music Awards will take place on Nov. 3 and will stream live on YouTube (shocker). The show will be hosted by actor, Jason Schwartzman, and will feature performances by Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Eminem.
The 90-minute show will take place at Pier 36 in NYC and will also feature performances by “viral stars” who rose to fame via the video sharing site. The show is also planning to feature musical events from around the globe.
Fans will have the opportunity to vote for winners, although categories and nominees have yet to be announced. Director, Spike Jonze, revealed more info. “As well as giving out awards, we’ll be making live music videos. The whole night should feel like a YouTube video itself. We’re getting together a group of amazing artists and filmmakers to do this live.”
Eminem joins the line-up to help promote the release of his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
