YouTube has launched the careers of tons of artists that a few years ago might never have made it outside of the comfort of their own homes.Tuesday it was announced that YouTube will throw its first-ever YouTube Music Awards show on Nov. 3 — on YouTube. Actor Jason Schwartzman will host the program, which will take place live at Pier 36 in New York. Guests include Eminem, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and popular YouTube artists such as the music-video collective CDZA and violinist Lindsey Stirling. "Our point is to celebrate YouTube's role in the music ecosystem," says Danielle Tiedt, the San Bruno, Calif.-based company's vice president of marketing. "If you think about how most of us encounter music, it's usually on YouTube, whether it's stars like Miley Cyrus and her VMA performance or her new Wrecking Ball video, or musicians like Lindsey (Stirling), who broke thanks to our site." Nominees for the seven awards will be announced October 17. Winners will be chosen by fans vote.
