Arcade Fire, Eminem, Lady Gaga to headline Youtube Music Awards

Oh, how the world changes. When I was in high school we were still downloading videos off of Kazaa, wondering what this Youtube thing was. Today, the seminal website has it’s own award show, the Youtube Music Awards, which today announced Eminem, Arcade Fire and Lady Gaga as headliner of the event that will take place live in New York City on November 3. The show, directed by Spike Jonze and hosted by Jason Schwartzman is “a celebration of music honoring the artists and songs that YouTube fans have turned into global hits over the past year.” Watch a video announcing the awards show below.
