YouTube Music Awards (Live)
NYC is the site of the first annual YouTube Music Awards. Hosted by Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts, the ceremony features performances by Eminem, Tyler The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Lady Gaga M.I.A. and more.
Director Spike Jonez Describes the creative direction of the awards show and says:
“We’re setting out to create a night that’s all about making things and creativity in the spirit of everyone that uses YouTube. 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.“
