Eminem is set to perform at the first-ever YouTube Music Awards show on Nov. 3.

With his new album coming just two days later, it's likely that the rapper could perform some never-before-heard material from The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Slim Shady released the album's lead single, Berzerk, in late August, and it debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The tune was also No. 2 on Digital Songs and topped the Rap Songs chart that first week.

Eminem's eighth album will be his first release since 2010's Recovery. That record, which went multi-platinum and rose to No. 1 on Billboard, features the hits Not Afraid and the Rihanna collaboration Love The Way You Lie.

Other confirmed performers for the 90-minute award show include Lady Gaga and Arcade Fire as well as musicians who rose to fame via YouTube. Six awards will also be handed out and the nominees will be announced on Oct. 17. Winners will be determined solely by fan votes.

The award show will be hosted by actor Jason Schwartzman and it will air live at Pier 36 in New York.

"We're trying to create live videos during the award shows so that the experience becomes more about creating than presenting," Danielle Tiedt, the company's vice president of marketing told Billboard in an interview. "Music is our bread and butter and our heart and soul here at YouTube. Our main goal is to not just do another award show. We wanted to do something special."

Albums Coming This Fall 2013

Spike Jonze, who is the event's creative director, went into more detail about the unconventional award show.

"Instead of bands performing to an audience on a stage, we're going to have a warehouse with all these different sets and try to make live music videos throughout the night," the famous music video director told The Los Angeles Times. "The idea is let's get a bunch of interesting artists together and have a night that's all about making things."
