MVM Special Edition: #PlatVnyl4 - Rap Video of The Year

We are on the home stretch, so to speak, as we progress through the Video Awards Show for #PlatVnyl4. The Rap Videos are next. We had a good group of nominees this time around, including a rarity for Rap and Hip Hop, a cover/remix of sorts. And what a style of music to cover. Not exactly rap material. Remember, if you are just joining us, we have already awarded Adult Contemporary, Alternative, Pop, Dance,  and Electronic. On to the awards.

The nominees in #PlatVnyl4 for Hip Hop/Rap Video of The Year were: Goin Home by +WHOSOEVER SOUTH ; No Sex by Still Trill Christians ; Pharaoh feat Tragic Hero by +Dre Murray ; Skyfall feat +ESHONBURGUNDY by Rekonciled ; and Sunglasses  by Rod G Newman and Mr. Del. You can check out the announcement post here.

When the votes were counted everyone was cheering for Bond, James Bond. Sorry. While the movie left me unmoved, I just loved this cover of the Adele Theme by Rekonciled. Who knew James could Rap. So the Winner of the Hip Hop/Rap Video of The Year for #PlatVnyl4 was Skyfall.

The Rock genres are next to close it out. First up is Hard Rock and Metal. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.

MVM Special Edition: #PlatVnyl4 - Electronic/Industrial Video of The Year

We begin the second half of the genre based videos in #PlatVnyl4. First up is the hard sibling of Dance/Synthpop, which we at Night Beat HQ have dubbed Electronic/Industrial Video of The Year. You can check out Adult Contemporary, Alternative, Pop, and Dance by clicking on the highlighted genres.

The five nominated videos and their artists are: Believe by +The Digital Age ; Faith Facing The Dark by Josh White; Guns for Hands by +twenty one pilots ; Somewhere To Hide and Waiting Alone by +SHINY TOY GUNS (A two-fer). You can check out the videos at the nomination post.

Maybe it was the double nominee that made things inevitable. Maybe it was the pure creep out factor. I don't know. What is sure is that when the votes were counted and certified, the winner of the #PlatVnyl4 Electronic/Industrial Video of The Year is Waiting Alone
Hip Hop is next. Until then, I am Awaiting Your Reply.

MVM Special Edition: #PlatVnyl4 - Dance/Synthpop Video of The Year

We have reached the fourth of eight Genre based Video Awards. Once we have awarded the Dance/Synthpop Video of The Year, this portion of #Platvnyl4 will be half over. For those who haven't been keeping pace with the awards so far, click on the highlighted genres to see the results for Adult Contemporary, Alternative, and Pop.

The five nominated videos came from all over the dance world, though one might have slipped in from hip hop. You just never know. Anyway, the five nominees are: Battery by +V ROSE ; Gold by +Britt NicoleGOLD ; I Don't Deserve You by +Paul van Dyk feat Plumb ; Solar System Remix by +Har Megiddo feat +Michael Ketterer ; and WHTVR by +Allistair Music .  You can check out the nominated videos and artists at the nomination page for the category.

Har Megiddo was really good, but the video was fairly old. While I really was rooting for Plumb, in the end the Hip Hop crossover won. The #PlatVnyl4 winner for Dance/Synthpop Video of The Year is Battery by V.Rose



Like I said, we have reached the halfway mark of the #PlatVnyl4 Video Awards. Next up is the electronic sibling of Synthpop, Electronic/Industrial Album of The Year. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.

MVM Special Edition: #PlatVnyl4 - Pop Video of The Year

Our third category in the #PlatVnyl4 Video Awards is that of Pop Video of The Year. The five nominated videos came from a wide swath of the Pop Genre. In fact, some might make a case that a few of the videos might not qualify as pop. You can catch our first two categories, which were Adult Contemporary and Alternative Video by clicking on the highlighted links.

The nominees, which you can watch at the nomination post, are: Beautiful Love by +ShineBrightBaby ; Love Walked In by +The Sonflowerz ; Loved by +JJHellermusic ; Still Into You by +Paramore ; and Wanted by +Dara Maclean .

Like Alternative, this category actually went into a second round of voting. The judging panel decided to go with the spirit of Pop Music, which is all about having fun. So the second round was between Shine Bright Baby and Paramore, and when it came down to the final vote it was all about which band had the most fun.

And the winner of Pop Video of The Year for #PlatVnyl4 is Still Into You by Paramore.

Three categories have been awarded, and there are 5 more to go. (There are actually a few more then that, but they will be pushed into the regular award show). Up next is the award for the first of the Electronic Categories, that of Dance/Synthpop Video of The Year. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.

MVM Special Edition: #PlatVnyl4 - Alternative Video of The Year

The Video Awards have begun. To see the results for our first award, click on the link. 

Our second award is Alternative Video of The Year. This category had some  top notch talent and one newcomer that is going to rock the charts very soon. Our nominees were: Believer by Audio Adrenaline; Bombs Away by +Jonathan Thulin ; I Am Mountain by +Gungor Band ; K.I.D.S. by +Farah Loux ; and Unstable by +Anberlin . You can see the announcement post and the nominated videos at the link.

This award took a little extra time to pick, due to the fact that Anberlin decided to make Lowborn its swan song. Multiple watching of the nominated videos were needed to clear any biased emotions, but in the end the decision was unanimous. The winner of the #PlatVnyl4 Alternative Video of The Year was Unstable.
Our next category is Pop Video of The Year. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
