There are few events that are bigger and more important than the Nobel Prize awards ceremony. This gives credit to those who do the most important work — the research on diseases, figuring out a complicated economy, helping the world’s neediest people, working for peace and much more.
The extravaganza gets under way with a big show and this year that gala will be carried live via YouTube. The show will feature many performers, most notable is former Tonight Show host Jay Leno.
The Google-owned video giant also promises extras — “Exclusive to the live stream, YouTube star Derek Muller of Veritasium will host a backstage pre-show to give you a unique look at what goes on behind-the-scenes”.
You’ll need to get moving because the show is set to air live today beginning at 1:30pm EST, that’s 19:30 CET.
