He's one-half of one of the best-selling male pop duos of all time and probably the last guy that comes to mind when you think of Internet innovation. But Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates has been building the perfect beast online since 2007 with his acclaimed free web-performance series, "Live From Daryl's House," which has featured everyone from Smokey Robinson to Travie McCoy, Neon Trees, Chromeo, Plain White T's and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump.
Why are we telling you all this? Because the show just won the O Music Awards trophy for Best Performance Series, that's why. And in doing so it beat out some of the other most acclaimed and beloved live performance web shows, including 4AD's "Sessions," the A.V. Club's cover song series "Undercover," Beck's eclectic album covers experiment "Record Club," the taking-it-to-the-streets "Black Cab Sessions," Daytrotter's awesome series of indie shows, the intimate, HD "From the Basement" experience, the picturesque French acoustic series "La Blogotheque," MTV's own "Unplugged," the quirky "Tiny Desk Concerts" from NPR and the intimate "Yours Truly" series.
MTV TJ Gabi Gregg announced the win for Hall. "Congrats to rock legend Daryl Hall, who gets the win for Live from Daryl's House," she said as the unconventional awards show served up yet another early magic cube in the lead up to Thursday's show. Stay tuned all this week for more award announcements.
The inaugural O Music Awards will stream live from Las Vegas at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT on OMusicAwards.com. Tune in to see who will reign supreme in categories like Most Viral Dance, Funniest Music Short and NSFW Music Video!
