"We`re thrilled to celebrate our fans and the music they love with a whole new kind of awards show ? the first-ever YouTube Music Awards ? judged by you," Danielle Tiedt, YouTube`s vice president of marketing, said in a statement.

The YouTube Music Awards is due to take place November 3 in New York City and Hollywood filmmaker Spike Jonze will be the creative director.
