Celebrating the hottest in digital music, The O Music Awards honor innovators in music, culture, and technology with categories like the Digital Genius Award, Fan Army FTW, Must Follow Artist on Twitter, and more.
The fourth annual ceremony will introduce five new awards, including Make a Band Famous; Next Big Scene, honoring emerging musical genres and trends; Most Inspiring Fan Outreach, honoring artists who use technology to connect with fans; Analog Genius, for the artist using outdated technology in updated ways; and the bound-to-be-fan-favorite “Friday, Friday” Award, “a salute to viral trends we wish would go away.”
Nominees include Justin Bieber, Frank Ocean, Demi Lovato, Beck, Miranda Lambert, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. One of the more spicy prizes, Too Much A** for TV, includes music video nominees David Bowie, Sigur Ros, DIIV, Frank Ocean, and Robin Thicke.
Winners will be crowned by the fans as voting begins on Wednesday May 16th at OMusicAwards.com. Check out the O Music Awards on June 19th at 7:00pm ET.
