YouTube to host Music Awards with Eminem
The fact is, more and more music talent is being discovered on YouTube every day - with some of those individuals even getting a record deal after being found on the site. Now, the video platform has announced that it will be hosting its own Music Awards show, and the event has already attracted some big names.
According to The Source, the show will take place at Pier 36 in New York City, and will air live Nov. 3 on YouTube, naturally. Rapper Eminem and Lady Gaga are just two of the major acts slated to take the stage at the awards. Actor Jason Schwartzman will host the event. Global Grind reported that the 90-minute show will feature six different categories, which will be decided by viewers' votes and announced later this month.
"We're trying to create live videos during the award shows so that the experience becomes more about creating than presenting," said Danielle Tied, YouTube's vice president of marketing, as quoted by the news outlet. "Music is our bread and butter and our heart and soul here at YouTube. Our main goal is to not just do another award show. We wanted to do something special."
