The 7th Annual Streamy Awards are THE place to be this month!

For the first time since the mid-1980s, Victor Willis will be joining the Village People for an epic performance at this year’s show. Willis, whose powerful voice is synonymous with all the Village People hits, revamped the group lineup this year, including the addition of an Asian-American for the first time in the group’s history.

“It’s hard to believe that it’s been 40 years since I recorded the first Village People album. So we look forward to our performance on the Streamys, carried live via Twitter, with a new generation of fans highly driven by social media platforms,” said Victor Willis. 

Willis and the band will be performing a medley of their most beloved songs during the telecast, so expect to be on your feet dancing the entire time to songs like “San Francisco/In Hollywood,” “Macho Man,” “YMCA,” “In the Navy,” and “Go West!”

In addition to this epic announcement, the Streamys just opened voting for the two Audience Choice categories – Creator of the Year and Show of the Year. Fans can vote once per day per category by tweeting out a nominee’s specific hashtag. Voting for both categories will close at 7PM PT on Tuesday, September 26, which is 30 minutes into the live stream of the 7th Annual Streamy Awards.
