MTV to Honor Steve Jobs at O Music Awards

In addition to their attempt of setting the Guinness World Record for the longest dance party, the second annual O Music Awards will honor Apple co-founder and former chairman and chief executive officer Steve Jobs.

So, what does MTV have up their sleeve? Maybe something similar to what you would see on the Video Music Awards?

Ehhh.

The O Music Awards on Oct. 31 in Los Angeles will honor Jobs with a special musical tribute, “featuring an up-and-coming artist performing an iconic song.”

I can understand MTV wanting to keep it a surprise, but the “up-and-coming” artist just screams someone we’ve never heard of before performing a classic Beatles song.
