Pop artists Meghan Trainor and the Jonas Brothers joined the winners’ circle Sunday (Aug. 27) at the 2023 Streamy Awards, which this year celebrated the past, present, and future of Internet culture.
“All About That Bass” singer Trainor was named as the Rolling Stone sound of the year winner, and delivered a sweet acceptance speech, during which she gave a shout-out to her kids, including her newborn baby.
Trainor won for “Made You Look,” in recognition of the song’s unparalleled impact on content creation across social media and its “resonance within popular culture,” reps say.
“Made You Look” last year peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped Billboard’s Adult Pop Airplay chart. Her son Riley helped grow the song’s profile on social media, including TikTok, where the track had been prominent throughout its charts run run. Taken from Trainor’s album Takin It Back, “Made You Look” was announced just after Trainor shared with the world the good news of her pregnancy with a second child.
Also at the Streamys, the brothers Kevin, Jon and Nick Jonas won the crossover category.
Performers on the night included viral hip-hop artist Armani White, who performed a medley of “Billie Eilish” and “Silver Tooth”; and Swedish dance-pop duo Icona Pop, who performed their 2012 punk-channeling smash “I Love It” along with new single “Fall In Love”.
Multiple winners at the Streamys included Fanum (breakout streamer, lifestyle); Kai Cenat (streamer of the year, lifestyle), MrBeast (creator of the year, collaboration) and Vivienne Medrano (animated, Streamys creator honor).
