Eminem, Swift, Macklemore top a very weird inaugural YouTube Music Awards

File-This Sept. 10, 2010 file photo shows rapper Eminem performing at Yankee Stadium in New York. The first YouTube Music Awards had all kinds of unexpected moments, imagined by Spike Jonze and carried off by the odd-couple hosts Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts. Eminem won artist of the year, and Taylor Swift and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were among the winners during Sunday night's live webcast from New York. But the awards were sort of beside the point as Jonze and others directed live videos with Eminem, Lady Gaga, M.I.A. and Earl Sweatshirt, and Schwartzman and Watts careened about the soundstage with no script and only notecards to point the way.

Crying babies, Win Butler's Kanye moment, a double suicide, face painting, a makeup-free Lady Gaga in plaid and a trucker's cap. There were all kinds of unexpected moments on the first YouTube Music Awards, as imagined by Spike Jonze and carried off by the odd couple hosts Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts.
