Streaming live from New York’s Pier 36 on Saturday Nov. 3, will be the first ever YouTube Music Awards.
Headlining the event are music superstars, all with highly-anticipated albums right around the corner – Arcade Fire, Eminem, and Lady Gaga.
The event intends on being 90-minutes long, obviously available for replay after the stream. Directing the show will be Spike Jonze (known for “Being John Malkovich” and “Adaptation”) and hosting will be fellow indie-icon, Jason Schwartzman (of “Rushmore” and “I Heart Huckabees” fame.)
Six awards will be presented during the evening, the categories to be announced in October, with the winners all being decided by viewer votes.
Director Spike Jonzez told Billboard he’s hoping for an “unconventional” awards show.
“I want to find out if we can make a whole night just about making things,” Jonze said. “Instead of just doing performances, can we do live collaborations?”
Hopefully. Let’s put Arcade Fire, Eminem, and Lady Gaga all on the stage at the same time and just break the Internet.
