Nominees were determined based "on a series of viewership, subscriber, and/or engagement metrics," Google's Youtube said.

YouTube will award performers in six categories: artist of the year, video of the year, innovation of the year, response of the year (for videos that remixed or parodied), YouTube breakthrough and YouTube phenomenon (for trend-setting videos).

The clips nominated for video of the year have pulled in a combined total of 1.9 billion views, according to YouTube's blog.
