YouTube AwardsA little over 8 years ago, before YouTube existed, 6-year-old piano prodigies were not found from their viral videos. The stories of little brothers who bit older brothers fingers, albeit funny, were not shared with the world. And certainly, no one knew “what the Fox say.”

Tonight, New York City will be the home of the first ever, YouTube Music Awards, which will be live streamed online beginning at 6 p.m. ET. Nominees were chosen for 6 categories based on videos that are at the top of their game in terms of views, shares, likes, comments, and subscribers in the last year.

The YouTube Music Awards marks just how far we’ve come in pop culture. We’ve built a connection society and I, for one, am thrilled to participate as a viewer.

Take a look at one of the nominated videos for tonight’s Most Inspirational category, “Free Hugs”, Peace on Earth123
