“We’re going to remind you to all vote!” said Mamrie Hart. “If you believe survivors, think that black lives matter, and know that trans rights are human rights, then get your butt to the polls on November 6.”

“You have so much influence,” said Grace Helbig. “The only thing that we encourage you to do is vote, and influence your audience to vote.”

The Try Guys hosted their first ever awards show with member Eugene Lee Yang, in full drag the entire time. Their opening number proposed that the EGOT (Emmy Grammy Oscar Tony) acronym add an S for Streamys and A for All the Awards to be EGOATS.

Montell Jordan closed out the show with a throwback performance of his 90’s platinum-selling hit single, “This Is How We Do It” which got the audience to their feet for a dancing finale, a trademark of the Streamys Awards. Charo jumped on stage to dance with him for a few seconds.
