February 17th's Streamy Awards just added two more musical notables to its impressive lineup of star talent. Rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em, best known for the viral sensation 'Crank Dat', and alt rockers Boyce Avenue have been added to the list of featured musicians alongside Vanilla Ice, Shontelle, and a host of YouTube performers. Soulja Boy is a fitting choice for an awards show celebrating online video, as 'Crank Dat' initially blew up thanks to a viral video featuring a performance of the song's signature dance inside a swimming pool. While that video has been removed, the 'Crank Dat' music video (with its 135 million views) is still bringing plenty of Soulja Boy swag to YouTube. He's also a preferred artist of Parks and Recreation's Tom Haverford, which means a lot to me personally. As for Boyce Avenue, the Floridian group is one of the most popular musical acts on YouTube. »
