YouTube Wednesday: AwesomenessTV…the YouTube channel where all of the awesomeness of the internet comes from

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we are going to do something a little different. Usually, we talk about amazing musicians and beauty/fashion/lifestyle gurus who are either already taking over YouTube, or are on the verge. Today instead of discussing an individual rising star, we are going to discuss a YouTube Network that is giving these stars a place where they can showcase their Awesomeness. If you haven’t already guessed, we are talking about the YouTube channel ‘AwesomenessTV’!!! AwesomenessTV has showcased some of our favorite stars such as: Fifth Harmony, Austin Mahone, 5SOS, The Vamps, Bethany Mota (you can find the blog post about her here: YouTube Wednesday: Bethany Mota, the beauty guru who proved that positivity is always in style | celindareyesblog), Ingrid Nilsen (aka Missglamorazzi, you can find the blog post about her here: YouTube Wednesday: Missglamorazzi…the beauty/fashion/health guru who likes her glamour with a side of fun! | celindareyesblog ), and many more. This network has also been a launching pad for many new stars who we love (and we’ve even discussed some of them previously on this blog site). Some of these stars include: Hunter March, Lauren Elizabeth, Meagan Dowling (blog post located here: YouTube Wednesday: Meaghan Dowling… a star on the rise and someone you need to know!!! ), Meghan Rienks( aka meghanrosette, you can find the blog post about her here: YouTube Wednesday: meghanrosette, the witty beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru that you will want to be BFFs with!!! | celindareyesblog ), Teala Dunn (the blog post about her is here: YouTube Wednesday: Teala Dunn…the actress/YouTube star that is fusing old and new media to make her mark | celindareyesblog), Lia Marie Johnson (please click here YouTube Wednesday: Lia Marie Johnson, The next comedy genius/music star you need to know about | celindareyesblog), and so many more. So whether you’ve been a fan of this network since its YouTube beginnings, or you fell in love with this network later, please read on to learn all about the YouTube network that has become a hub for finding and developing the next generation of YouTube stars.

 

AwesomenessTV uploaded their first video on their YouTube channel on May 8th, 2012. The video was entitled ‘Randomness – The Lil’ Dictator Part 1’ (Randomness – The Lil’ Dictator Part 1 – YouTube). ‘The Lil’ Dictator’ is a skit about a young dictator who arrives at a school and begins making demands for the teacher to give him A’s, and the students to work as footstools. The skit was really interesting, and definitely was a good representation of what sort of work would eventually show up on the channel. If you loved shows with comical skits such as: ‘All That’ (Nickelodeon) and ‘So Random’ (Disney Channel), then you will love AwesomenessTV’s  skits. Fans of Saturday Night Live would also love this channel’s skits, because many of the skits share the same sort of comedy found in Saturday Night Live, only tailored towards kids. Although AwesomenessTV has a lot of really funny skits, they also have many other shows that explore: fashion, beauty tricks/myths, music, reality shows, the behind the scene lives of celebrities, teen topics, entertainment news, and much more (so basically you’ll definitely find something you love on this channel). One of my favorite shows on AwesomenessTV is their talk show IMO (which is now in a different format), where various teen & young adult actresses and YouTubers discuss topics that are important to teen girls such as makeup, fashion, bullying, friends, and of course boys (all fan girls can relate to this one…here’s the trailer to get an idea about what the shows is about IMO official trailer on Awesomeness TV – YouTube).

 

If fashion and beauty are more your thing, then AwesomenessTV has you covered with shows such as: Make Me Over, Makeup Mythbusters, Nail Pop, and many more incredible shows (including numerous vlogs from some of your fav beauty/fashion gurus). I really enjoyed Make  Me Over, because you got to see some of your fav beauty gurus (such as Bethany Mota and Missglamorazzi)take regular girls and tech them (with the assistance of their glam squad), how to create makeup, hair, and fashion looks that would convey a certain style, or was appropriate for a certain event (here’s the first episode of Season 1 with Bethany Mota, who hosted this particular season Make Me Over – Macbarbie07 Makes Over Tahara – Make Me Over Ep.1 – YouTube). Makeup Mythbusters is another really cool AwesomenessTV show where beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru Maybaby (aka Meg DeAngelis)and a guest try out several “beauty tricks” to see if this trick will do what it promises or not.

 

If you love entertainment news, then catch AwesomenessTV’s own Ryan Seacrest in training…Hunter March! Hunter’s personality contains just the right combination of funny, awkward, and of course awesomeness, to make him someone that you’ll want to tune in and watch every day. Hunter also has a show called #DearHunter on AwesomenessTV, where he answers all of your questions from a guy’s perspective (that’s priceless information you guys, here’s a link to the first episode How do you tell a guy you like him? #DearHunter – Ep. 1 – YouTube).

 

AwesomenessTV also has a lot of original shows such as: Terry The Tomboy (a series starring Lia Marie Johnson, which has also been turned into a hilarious Nickelodeon movie), Runaways (an action packed crime show about two young teens who have ran away, and the secrets that are exposed because of this, here’s a link to episode1 RUNAWAYS – Season 1 Episode 1 – YouTube…trust me you’ll LOVE it), Side Effects (a musical drama that is kinda hard to fully describe so I’ll just let you discover how amazing this show is by clicking on episode 1 here Side Effects Season 1 – Official Full-Length Episode – YouTube, this series also stars YouTube musician Chester See!), The Andrea and Jenn Show (which is a reality show that follows the lives of YouTubers Andrea Russett (aka gettoxfabxforever), and JennXPenn, here’s episode 1 for y’all Andrea & Jenn go APARTMENT HUNTING – THE ANDREA & JENN SHOW ep. 1 – YouTube), and the newest show that I’ve been OBESSED with which is called ‘Meghan and Lauren’s GUIDE TO DATING’ (which follows YouTubers Meghan Rienks and Lauren Elizabeth, as they navigate the hilarious adventure of dating…trust me, once you watch the first episode, you will be hooked WHERE TO MEET GUYS!? – Meghan Rienks and Lauren Elizabeth’s GUIDE TO DATING – YouTube).

 

So as y’all can see this channel has EVERYTHING! There is so much more that we could talk about, but I would have you guys here for hours if we went through everything. Personally, I have watched AwesomenessTV ever since IMO first premiered in 2012, and ever since then, I have clicked on the channel everyday to see what amazing new show is waiting for me. Some of the shows I mentioned in this post may no longer be airing new episodes, or may be in a different format, but trust me when I say, there is ALWAYS something new to watch on AwesomenessTV. Along with the shows I mentioned, there are live performances from your fav stars and YouTubers, and reality shows about cheerleading teams, dance teams, and so much more. No matter what your interests are, you will find something on AwesomenessTV. In July of 2013, AwesomenessTV also started airing on Nickelodeon (it airs on Saturday nights at (9:30 pm PST , but check your local listings just in case it’s a different time where you live) where you can see your fav YouTube and TV stars performing funny  skits on your TV screen, honestly what could be better!?! I am very excited to see where AwesomenessTV goes from here, and what talented, funny, and yes, AWESOME new stars this amazing YouTube channel will introduce to us next!

YouTube Wednesday: Lia Marie Johnson, The next comedy genius/music star you need to know about

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we are going to discuss rising YouTube star and actress Lia Marie Johnson. She was born in Wahiawa, Hawaii in November of 1996. Lia began performing at a young age, after her family’s move to Virginia. During her time in Virginia, she was in several school plays and talent shows. A short time later, Lia and her family moved to California, and she posted her first YouTube video of herself singing ‘Ave Maria’ on June 8th, 2008 (which you can see here Ave Maria 2 – YouTube). Lia’s first YouTube video began to achieve some attention on YouTube, so she continued to post cover videos. On July 3rd, 2011, Lia released a music video for her song ‘One and Only’ on YouTube, and released the video to ITunes on July 5th, 2011, (here’s a link to the ‘‘One and Only’ music video: Lia – One and Only – YouTube). She continued to act in commercials and perform in numerous sketches such as in a ‘Twilight’ sketch which was posted on the popular Funny or Die website, as well as on the internet sketch comedy show ‘OMGTV!! Live’ (here’s a link to one of Lia’s sketches, so you can see how funny she is! I promise you’ll love it!!: Lia – OMGtv!!Live Sketch Comedy – YouTube).

 

She soon met fellow YouTubers Benny & Rafi Fine (also known as ‘The Fine Bros’ on YouTube), who hired her for one of their sketches entitled ‘Sarah Palin Family Meeting’. Lia has continued to work with The Fine Brothers on their ‘Kids React’ series (which is an online show that shows kids between the ages of 5 and 14 popular internet videos, and then the brothers ask the kids questions about the videos in order to get their opinions on pop culture figures, viral videos, and social/political issues…you can check out the fine brothers channel here: TheFineBros – YouTube).

 

Lia later went on to become a part of the cast another show created by The Fine Brothers, entitled ‘Teens React’, which shares the same format as ‘Kids React, but stars teenagers between the ages of 15 and 19 (Lia is currently still a part of this show). She also currently is a part of another Fine Brothers’ project called ‘My Music’, which is a mock reality show which depicts the day to day lives of employees at a fictional record label. Lia has also worked with various YouTube stars, such as Shane Dawson (who owns and operates one of the most subscribed channels in YouTube history) and Britney Louise Taylor. Due to Lia’s association with the Fine Brothers, and various other popular YouTubers, Lia was soon contacted by ‘AwesomnessTV’ (a YouTube channel that has videos about beauty, fashion, music, celebrity gossip, as well as a talk show and comedy sketches…I would definitely suggest that you check it out, because it is truly awesome, here’s the link: AwesomenessTV – YouTube…but remember, check out the link after you finish reading this blog, deal? Yay ok let’s continue then!).

 

She has been a part of numerous sketches for AwesomnessTV, however her most popular sketch is her ‘Terry the Tomboy’ series. This sketch is about a proud, self proclaimed tomboy named ‘Terry’, who makes vlogs in which she instructs her audience on how to dress and act as a tomboy. This series has been a HUGE success for Lia, and definitely shows her skills and passion for comedic projects. As a part of the ‘AwesomnessTV’ team, Lia has also appeared on Nickelodeon as a part of AwesomnessTV’ 7:00-7:30pm Monday night timeslot on the popular network. Along with her comedy sketch work, Lia also posts cover videos on her YouTube channel, vlogs, and does tag videos or challenge video (tag videos are videos where the YouTuber making the video answers questions, or discusses a particular topic, and challenge videos challenges the YouTuber making the video to do weird and/or difficult dares). Lia films the videos by herself, as well as with various other AwesomnessTV and YouTube stars. On October 29th, 2013 Lia guest starred on the first episode of the AwesomnessTV original web series ‘Side Effects’, as the character of ‘Susan’ ,the best friend of one of the main characters ‘Whitney’ (Meg DeLacy). Lia and Meg performed a rendition of Taylor Swift’s hit song ‘Mean’ on the show, which was uploaded on to ITunes on October 29th, 2013 (here’s a link to the official ‘Side Effects’ music video of the two talented girls performing the song Taylor Swift – “Mean” | Side Effects Official Music Video – YouTube). Although Lia is only 17 years old, she already has a resume that many would envy. I defiantly see her becoming a huge star in the next few years, and it won’t be long before she is a household name. Lia is a star on the rise, and I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in 2014.
