Lady Gaga, Eminem to headline first YouTube Music Awards
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Pop singer Lady Gaga and rapper Eminem will be headline performers at the first YouTube Music Awards, the Google Inc-owned online video steaming site said on Tuesday.
The Nov 3 award show in New York, which will be live-streamed, honours the top songs and artists that were viewed on the website in the past year.
Nominees will be announced later this month and voting by the public will determine winners, YouTube said.
Canadian rock band Arcade Fire will also perform at the awards show. The show will be hosted by actor-musician Jason Schwartzman while film and music video director Spike Jonze will serve as creative director, YouTube said.
