MTV is attempting breaking a world record. On Sunday at 9 p.m. PT, MTV kicked off a 24-hour livestream on www.omusicawards.com in order to break the Guinness World Record for the longest dance marathon. The event isn’t just to break a record, though–it’s also aimed to help a good cause.
The dance marathon is going to raise money for several LGBT organizations and will promote inclusivity, something that is desperately needed to be addressed. Several celebrities plan on stopping by the event to show support including Shangela from “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Peta Murgatroyd from “Dancing with the Stars” and We R Heroes from “America’s Best Dance Crew.”
The event is expected to break the world record during Monday’s O Music Awards, which celebrates artists, fans, and innovators who impact digital music culture. The awards show will start 8:30 p.m. PT and will have performances by The Flaming Lips, Robyn, The Band Perry, Mac Miller and Alabama Shakes. There will also be appearances by Kelly Clarkson, Demi Levato, Tyler the Creator, Yoko Ono, Travie McCoy, and plenty more.
