As previously announced, this year’s Streamy Awards will go host-less. The show will feature numerous creator led segments from collaborators including Emma Chamberlain, Mr. Kate, Rosanna Pansino, Mark Rober, Brandon Rogers, Patrick Starrr and Hannah Stocking.
The 2019 awards ceremony will take place at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Friday, December 13, 2019, and will stream live globally and exclusively on YouTube via YouTube.com/streamys at 5:00 PM PST / 8:00 PM EST.
“This year’s show will be full of fun and inspiring moments, including a high-energy performance from Kim Petras,” said Streamys founder Drew Baldwin. “Each year we try to bring new elements to the show, and we cannot wait to experience the imaginative artistry Kim will bring to the stage.”
Petras has become one of the most buzzed-about artists of 2019 with the release of her critically-acclaimed debut full-length project Clarity. Dominating Spotify’s “New Music Friday” and Apple Music’s “Best of The Week” playlists for 10 consecutive weeks with its acclaimed singles, the project includes Kim’s glacial hit “Icy” which is quickly adding to her more than 215 million global streams. Kim’s undeniable voice and imaginative artistry have skyrocketed her to international recognition, immediately selling out shows and earning major mainstream media praise. First breaking out with her #1 Spotify Global Viral 50 bop “I Don’t Want It At All,” Kim launched into Top 40 radio with her pop hit “Heart to Break,” followed by an opening spot on Troye Sivan’s nationwide Bloom Tour. Kim recently dropped her Halloween-inspired project Turn Off The Light and appears on “How It’s Done” from the Ariana-Grande-produced Charlie’s Angels soundtrack alongside Kash Doll, ALMA, and Stefflon Don. She has also collaborated with Charli XCX, Cheat Codes, MAX, SOPHIE, Lil Aaron, and has appeared on multiple billboards in New York, London, and Los Angeles as a Spotify RISE artist.
