Hosted by Glee star Jane Lynch, the ceremony will honor and celebrate the nation?s best young world-changers who represent the pivotal ?do-ers? in their field, cause or issue. Celebrities such as Lady GaGa, Justin Bieber, Prince William and Duchess Catherine, David Beckham, Scarlett Johansson, Russell Brand and Will Ferrell have been nominated in a variety of categories from ?Do Something Movie Star? to ?Do Something Couple? for all they have done to inspire young people. Many will be on hand to accept and present the awards at the show which will air Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 9 p.m. EST on VH1.
The show will mark the first time Demi Lovato will perform her hit single ?Skyscraper? live. Her fans played a big part in making this performance happen by enthusiastically tweeting the word ?Skyscraper? to @DoSomething multiple times over the last month. Lovato is also nominated for two awards in the Do Something Charity Song and Do Something TV Star categories.
“If you are expecting anything less than ‘wow,’ you’ve got the wrong award show. We are so psyched to have Demi’s first public performance, a hot break-out band like Foster the People, and expect OneRepublic with B.o.B to be very loud!” said Nancy Lublin, CEO and Chief Old Person of DoSomething.org.
