First-time honorees Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, LMFAO and Selena Gomez will be honored with a rollout of exclusive, original programming premiering on VEVO beginning in June.
The inaugural VEVO CERTIFIED honorees are Justin Bieber’s "Baby," "Never Say Never," "One Time," "Somebody To Love," "Never Let You Go," "One Less Lonely Girl," "Love Me" and "Mistletoe;" Katy Perry’s "Firework," "ET," "Last Friday Night" and "Teenage Dream;" LMFAO’s "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It;" and Selena Gomez’s "Naturally," "Who Says," "Love You Like a Love Song" and "A Year Without Rain."
VEVO CERTIFIED programming will kick off with Justin Bieber on June 12 followed by Katy Perry (June 25), LMFAO (July 9) and Selena Gomez (July 23). All CERTIFIED programming will be available at vevo.com/certified. VEVO will honor additional artists and their CERTIFIED videos each quarter going forward.
"To have eight VEVO CERTIFIED videos means the world," said Bieber. "I always say the internet is where I got my start. I posted videos and now to have it come full circle - and now I’m getting CERTIFIED - it’s amazing."
"I just want to thank all my friends and fans online that have watched my music videos so many times that I can barely count," said Katy Perry. "Thank you all for your attention and for your love and support. I will always try my best to give you something special. Rock on!"
"Thanks to the fans for [watching] on our videos, showing their support and showing their love," said LMFAO.
