NEW YORK (AP) - Steve Jobs helped transform the way music is consumed, and now he’s getting a musical tribute.

Rockers the Flaming Lips will honor the late Apple co-founder by performing a cover of the Beatles’ “Revolution” at the O Music Awards 2 on Oct. 31. The performance will be recorded with an iPad and broadcast on OMusicAwards.com, MTV announced Tuesday.

Electronic-dance singer Robyn will headline the award show, which will take place in Los Angeles. The special “celebrates the artists, innovators and fans impacting digital music culture.”

Other performers and presenters include Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Travie McCoy and Tyler, the Creator.

Jobs died at age 56 on Oct. 5 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
