Google invites you to the 2015 YouTube Music Awards, hosted by Tyler Oakley
With the launch of MTV in the 1980s, music and video became forever linked. In recent years, the name MTV, or Music TV, became quite the misnomer, as the channel ditched the music videos that made it popular, embracing original programming instead. The music video did not die, however, it just moved to the web instead. Yes, music videos on YouTube are wildly popular, seeing billions of views.
Today, Google invites you to the 2015 YouTube Music Awards. No, you aren't invited to the actual event, but you can watch it live online. Will you tune in?

As a Hip-Hop fan, I am looking forward to Action Bronson and Migos, but beyond that, I am either not a fan of or not familiar with the other acts. With that said, I love discovering new music, so I am hoping to be impressed by some other acts that I do not know.
Overall, it should be a fun show; Tyler Oakley is a hip dude. To get ready, check out the winning music videos here.
