For the next few hours, the party alternated between New York and Nashville with sets from Kate Nash, Hanson, Nikki Williams and Gavin DeGraw. While some of the East Coast closed their eyes for a few hours, Los Angeles stepped in with performances by Grouplove, the Mowgli’s and more.

And through it all, no matter the time of day and always wearing a pair of shades, Andrew W.K. , kept drumming for 24-hours non-stop, setting a world record for the Longest Drum Session in a Retail Store. He was posted up at the Oakley store in Times Square for the entire awards show, and MTV News caught up with him after he was presented with a formal world-record certificate to find out just how he got through it.

Guests ?uestlove, Nick Jonas, Zac Hanson, Marky Ramon and even a cowbell-playing Cuba Gooding Jr. jumped in to show their support throughout his drumathon. W.K. attributed them, as well as his friends, wife and fans, for getting him through. And even though he admitted to feeling “every emotion” and physical pain, he said it was hard to tell because of all the excitement.

“I actually never got tired because there was so much adrenaline and so many people that were especially giving so much energy. It really felt like a team effort,” said W.K., who presented with the OMA for Must-Follow Artist on Twitter.
