Youtube does a lot of these things now. It's quite normal in my opinion.
In the past they have put up LIVE links for concerts, the royal wedding and other speeches/conferences.
And also, it's just a link, they're not forcing anyone to watch it. Same is like a News Channel, it's on there 24 hours a day, but you don't have to
It's all down to personal preference.
I guess putting a link onto Youtube makes it easier for everyone else to watch it, if they choose to do so.
