The first ever YouTube Awards has come and gone, and we have the complete list of its honoraries. Check the fudge out!
VIDEO OF THE YEAR: Girls’ Generation’s “I Got A Boy“
Full of pink, sass, and girl power, the K-pop girl group’s latest video has finally secured them a place on the international pop scene. Plus, like everyone else, we loved the breakdown at the middle.
ARTIST OF THE YEAR: Eminem
We’re not really sure what went on during the delib process, since the part 2 of ‘Marshall Mathers’ (and its tunes) just arrived. PR effort, perhaps? Or those needed Skylar Grey collaborations?
RESPONSE OF THE YEAR: Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix’s “Radioactive“
The past few years saw tons of covers from amateur to mid-professional YouTubers, but nothing was as amazing as this violin-infested rendition of Imagine Dragons’ ‘Radioactive’.
YouTube PHENOMENON: Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble“
T-Swizzle keeps on raking those awards! She even beat virals such as ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Harlem Shake’, which we’re a bit suspicious about. Well, it will never pull off a ”Call Me Maybe’ anyway.
YouTube BREAKTHROUGH: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
After the recent MTV VMAs showered them with love, the hip-hop newcomers have now come to bedazzle the staff of YouTube as well. We blame it not on the alcohol, but on the catchy stylings of ‘Same Love’ and ‘Thrift Shop’. Wut wut!
INNOVATION OF THE YEAR: DeStorm’s “See Me Standing“
New R&B crooner DeStorm Power can expect more than just social media love in the video, now that his opus is dubbed as the year’s best innovation. We owe it to the brilliant turn of events on the clip’s storyline.
