Several sites are currently reporting that Eminem's highly-anticipated performance at NYC's exclusive "Shock the World" party hosted by G-Shock on Wednesday (August 7) will feature an online live stream. NOT TRUE! Parts of the annual music event will be broadcasted live online, and Slim Shay IS a confirmed performer, but fans won't be able to watch his rap set from the comforts of their computer. Bummer. Don't get too jealous, but 50 lucky fans recently won a Twitter sweepstakes that gets them access to the "top secret" show. So those select few will probably hear some awesome new music from Shady's upcoming album!

Here's the Twitter update from G-Shock US, posted late Tuesday evening (August 6):
Get ready for the G-Shock 30th Anniversary 'Shock The World 2013' event - streaming LIVE tomorrow - August 7th, 2013 at 8PM EST on G-Shock! #stw2013
DISCLAIMER: The Eminem performance will NOT be streamed.
Now, several disappointed fans don't even think the show's worth watching online. But for 50 lucky Twitter users, they won't need a computer. They all won the G-ShockEminemContest Twitter sweepstakes, which gains them access to the private show! G-Shock just announced the final 13 confirmed winners. Congrats to:
Mario Vincent Pinna
And of course the "privileged" select few are very excited:
But what about the rest of us? The release date for Shady's 2013 album still remains unconfirmed, along with all the other details surrounding this mystery album. Cut the fans a break, already!
