Watch The YouTube Music Awards (And Pre-Show) Live Stream Right Here

We can't stop watching the world-wide pre-show.


YouTube is hosting their first-ever Music Awards tonight in New York City, leading up to it with a world-wide pre-show broadcast from Seoul to London. But if you’re elsewhere, don’t stress; obviously, you can catch the whole thing via YouTube live stream right here!

The pre-show is in Moscow right now, and from 2-3pm EST will move to Rio. The actual Music Awards will go live from Pier 36 in New York City at 6pm EST, hosted by Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts, and will feature performances by Lady Gaga, Eminem, Arcade Fire, and more.

All of the nominees – including Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Katy Perry – were determined by YouTube data from the last 12 months. So that one time you watched “Roar” as kind of a joke? Yeah, you helped Katy make it to the top. This also makes for a couple of good lulz; Artist of the Year nominees include PSY, One Direction, Nicki Minaj and… Epic Rap Battles of History!

You can check out the pre-show live right here, and the Music Awards will also broadcast here at 6pm EST. We wish your faves the best of luck!
