Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga to headline YouTube Music Awards

Lady Gaga will headline the first ever YouTube Music Awards.

The 'Bad Romance' hitmaker will join Arcade Fire and Eminem on November 3 at the inaugural event which will honour artists who have shared their work through the popular video-sharing website.

YouTube's vice president of marketing Danielle Tiedt said: ''It's our chance to really celebrate the artists and the songs that have become hits on YouTube over the past year.''

There will be a number of performances taking place across the globe - including Seoul, Moscow, London and Brazil - before a live 90-minute show which will be streamed from Pier 36 in Manhattan, New York City.

American director Spike Jonze - who has worked on videos for a host of top artists including Weezer, P. Daddy, the Chemical Brothers, Bjork and R.E.M. - has been cast as creative director for the production and is looking forward to working with the talent.

According to the Los Angeles Times newspaper, he said: ''Instead of bands performing to an audience on a stage, we're going to have a warehouse with all these different sets and try to make live music videos throughout the night.

''The idea is let's get a bunch of interesting artists together and have a night that's all about making things.''

Executive producers include VICE Media and Sunset Lane Entertainment while 'Rushmore' star Jason Schwartzman will host the extravaganza.
