October 30, 2013 - 5:56 pm
1. A Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley Moment
Kanye West has made Kim Kardashian a mom and now his bride-to-be. The couple has celebrated their love through Kanye’s revealing interviews and Kim’s Instagram, so it would be perfect for the two to show up to the Internet’s biggest platform of shock and awe.

2. Revolt TV Takeover
What’s a music show without the inventor of the remix? Diddy would be a fun extra host alongside Watts and Schwartzman with a Revolt TV Takeover. We’re ready to see Diddy bring the high energy and of course be on his worst behavior.

3. Prince Performance
Prince shunned the Internet for so long just to own it in 2013. With an elusive Twitter handle (@3RDEYEDGIRL) and a creative video for the single "Breakfast Can Wait," a performance would be a lot to ask for, but why not? We’re sure the moment would be cherished by fans of all ages.

4. Justin Bieber Performance
The Biebs has been dropping silky smooth tracks for his Music Mondays series. With singles like "All That Matters" "Hold Tight" and recently "Recovery," his transition into a mature sound should be noted. Even though the full list of performers has been announced, a serenade from Justin would be a pleasant surprise since he got his big break from YouTube.

5. Music Videos and EDM Masterpieces
EDM’s presence is more than just the clubs and the Top 40 Charts. Since artists are making live music videos on stage, why not have some of the genre’s biggest artists create the biggest party of the year? It’s only right.

6. Eminem Shares The Stage With...
As the release date for Marshall Mathers LP 2 approaches, we’re excited to see his performance at the YouTube Awards. In award shows of the past, Em has always created classic performances including his minions for the VMA’s in 2002, to his collaboration with Elton John at the 2001 Grammy’s. It will be something else if he performs with someone outside of his genre like Charli XVX or the very popular Lorde.

7. Hashtags on Hashtags
With only a few performances and awards to be given out during the show, all eyes will be on the musicians who plan on creating music videos at the show. With Twitter being as unpredictable as a Scandal episode, the hashtags are bound to spread further than Black Twitter.

8. A Beyonce Cameo
Beyonce will be in Sydney, Australia the night of the award show, but a satellite performance of a new song will be very much appreciated.

9. Gaga Dropping It Low With R.Kelly
While "Do What You Want" wasn’t planned to be the second single of Lady Gaga’s third album ARTPOP, it’s been the next big hit for the singer and an unexpected collaboration with R. Kelly, but we’re ready to see an insane performance with the two singers. With Gaga toning down the dramatics in her latest performances, Kellz will help bring it all back.

10. A Solid '90s Comeback
While there’s no sur fire way you'll be able to walk through Blockbuster again, there’s always that great '90s comeback everyone will enjoy. It’s a fun journey into nostalgia that will last for a couple of minutes but for some a lifetime.
