YouTube Music Awards: Full List Of Nominees


YouTube Music Awards 2013

The 2013 YouTube Music Awards will air live on November 3. In preparation for the show the Google-owned network has released a list of this years YouTube Music Video Awards nominees.

Sorry folks but this isn’t about the most creative or even the best music on the market. YouTube chose its possible winners based on video views, likes, comments and channel subscriptions since September 2012.

YouTube created nomination videos for each nominee and fans must share those videos on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter to cast a vote.

The YouTube Music Awards will be hosted by Musician Reggie Watts and actor Jason Schwartzman. The event will air lives from Pier 36 in New York City and will feature various performances from the likes of Tyler the Creator, Walk Off the Earth, and M.I.A. among others.
