Public Enemy, Seal, Frank Black, and Wyclef Jean and the Refugee All-Stars are among the artists who will hit the stage next week to perform as part of the second annual Yahoo! Internet Life Online Music Awards.
The ceremony, set for New York’s Studio 54 on Monday, will also feature a special appearance by Prince, though it’s not yet known in what capacity the artist will appear.
The event, which will be presided over by Penn & Teller, aims to salute the best that the Net has to offer for music fans. An extension of “Yahoo! Internet Life” magazine, the awards ceremony branches out this year to honor not only sites that cover music, but also the artists who bring their music to fans online. The Beastie Boys, Garbage, David Bowie, Sarah McLachlan, Marilyn Manson, Tori Amos, Cheap Trick, and Frank Black are among the artists up for awards this year, as are the aforementioned Public Enemy and Prince.
This year’s winners will be selected by a panel that includes online music
industry insiders as well as artists like the Dust Brothers, Isaac Hayes, and Dean and Gene Ween.
