Because we desperately need another awards show. On November 3, YouTube will be premiering its first-ever music awards hosted by Jason Schwartzman and headlined by Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Arcade Fire. The performances will be livestreamed under the direction of Spike Jonze. “[I]nstead of bands performing to an audience on a stage, we're going to have a warehouse with all these different sets and try to make live music videos throughout the night,” Jonze says. The nominees will be announced on October 17, and crowdsourced voting will take place on YouTube and other sites.
