Britney Spears, Joe Jonas + More Win at the MTV O Music Awards
Yesterday (Oct. 31), MTV held the second installment of their O Awards, which honor musical achievements and oddities in the online community. Britney Spears picked up an O Award for an extremely memorable tweet to DJ Pauly D, while Joe Jonas snagged a trophy for his awe-inspiring ‘See No More’ lyric video.
In addition to Brit and Joe’s wins, Demi Lovato also represented the pop posse, picking up a win for keeping all of her fans up to date with a series of amazing cameraphone pictures. In addition to these three winners, Adam Lambert‘s army of fans known as ‘Glamberts’ were also honored with an O Award.
At the show, recording artists Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Travie McCoy and Tyler, the Creator showed up to the fun-filled award show. Robyn took the stage as the headlining act, singing ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ for the crowd, while Mac Miller, the Band Perry and the Alabama Shakes also performed. The MTV O Awards also broke a Guinness World Record for the Longest Team Dance Marathon, thanks to a troupe of dancers who grooved nonstop for 24 hours.
