It was only a matter of time before YouTube put on some kind of award show. But I didn’t expect them to do it with such a bang. They’re going all out here with performances by Eminem, Arcade Fire and Lady Gaga. Arcade Fire just had the weirdest performance of all time on SNL last weekend, so I’m definitely looking forward to that.
The awards will be hosted by Jason Schwartzman, making this the first major award show where I have no idea who the guy hosting is. Does anyone know who Jason Schwartzman is? Supposedly his claim to fame was a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the Satellite Awards in 2005. With huge musical acts it’s kind of disappointing they couldn’t find a better host. But at least we know he can’t be worse than James Franco at the Oscars. Check out the promo video below and watch the show on November 3rd.
