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.

MTV Wants the Guinness World Record for Longest Dance Party

Break out your dancing shoes because MTV is attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the longest dance party starting on Oct. 29 at the Roxy Theater.

It’s all part of the second annual O Music Awards, which celebrates the best in digital music. The actual award show is Oct. 31 from a yet to be announced L.A. location.

OMusicAwards.com will stream the entire dance party as they attempt to break the previous record of 55 hours set in Ireland in 2006. At the inaugural O Music Awards, rapper Chiddy of Chiddy Bang broke the Guinness World record for longest freestyle rap.

MTV will also raise money during the three-day event for GLSE (the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network), It Gets Better, The Gay Straight Alliance Network (GSA), Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).
