The Day In Online Video News and Views: November 4th 2013

The internet's reaction to yesterday's YouTube Music Awards is a mixed bag - mostly it's been one of confusion at the approach taken by director Spike Jonze. Overall, the deliberate 'chaos' of the event proved weary for some, innovative for others. The show's watch page confirmed that the live stream attracted 873,288 views; either the numbers are way, way out and need updating or YouTube seriously misjudged the amount of attention the awards were going to get, particularly as 60 million people were said to have voted for the nominations.
