MUZU goes ‘Live & Loud’ with exclusive new videos

18 Feb 2011

Music video site MUZU, which shares ad revenues with music labels, has launched a new live video performance service, with new performances by two artists uploaded every week.

This week, Live & Loud will feature two Brit Award-winning artists. Jessie J gives an exclusive performance only available on MUZU.TV, of her UK No 1 hit Price Tag from BBC Two’s Later … with Jools Holland, and Ellie Goulding, who sings her massive hit Starry Eyed, performed during the 2010 Brit Awards launch party.

The two live videos will be up against each other and visitors will need to watch and vote for their favourite. Two new performances will be added every week. The artist with the most votes will win and one of the people that voted for them will receive a prize for their support.
