Thursday, August 18, 2011: The VH1 Do Something Awards

Jane Lynch's promo ad for the 2011 Do Something Awards kind of said it all -- the Do Something awards on VH1? The network that houses Audrina and Mob Wives is urging us to do something? But yes -- yes they are. The Do Something awards is basically an awards show to "honor young people's commitment to social change," which is -- unlike VH1, most of the time -- actually a very cool thing to do.

The biggest award is the actual "Do Something Award." VH1 has chosen five young people that have been committed to social action and gives them a preliminary grant of $10,000 to keep doing their work. Then, thanks to the online voting system, a winner is chosen and that person receives a $100,000 grant during the live show.

Of course, to get viewers, there's also awards for celebrities that have been charitable, like "Comedian," "Athlete," "Couple," and so on. With all of the stars showing up -- Lady Gaga, David Beckham, Justin Bieber -- and performers like Demi Lovato and B.O.B taking the stage, hopefully the message of "do something" isn't completely lost in all of the craziness. As mentioned above, Jane Lynch is hosting, which should be fun -- and a sort of test-trial for her Emmys gig.

The show begins tonight at 9 on VH1.
