To celebrate creativity and innovation in music on YouTube, we’re once again hosting the YouTube Music Awards, in partnership with Kia Motors and executive producer VICE Media - but in a very different way.
This March, YouTube will celebrate and award the artists to watch in 2015 as determined by our fans. For one special day, music will be the headline act on YouTube. We’ll take this moment to celebrate the biggest and emerging artists through new and unique music video collaborations with top directors and creators. And fans will be involved in every step along the way, guiding and creating these videos.
The YouTube Music Awards are our latest initiative in making YouTube the best place for artists and fans to connect. People have turned YouTube into the biggest music service in the world, thanks to music videos, remixes, covers and so much more across every genre imaginable. The Awards come on the heels of our new music experience including YouTube Music Key beta that gives fans more ways to enjoy music, while also giving artists more ways to be discovered and earn more revenue.
The 2013 YouTube Music Awards was one of the most watched music awards events ever with more than 54 million total views and counting, and we can’t wait to make this next event even bigger.
To kick off the celebration now, we have big stars and emerging musicians releasing new videos, all of which you can find at our new channel youtube.com/musicawards. Over the next week, you’ll see new videos from GD X TAEYANG and Megan Nicole, in conjunction with some of the biggest names in music video filmmaking like Colin Tilley. You can stay tuned by subscribing to youtube.com/musicawards, where we’ll have some surprises this December, and much more news to announce in January.
