Admittedly I haven't played with the Xbox YouTube app much. I looked through various tabs and menus and could not find a way to perform a keyword search. Is there a way?

@Juan, How is this off-topic? You apparently agree with me that console use questions are on-topic, and I think this falls squarely there -- using an app on a gaming machine. – Matthew Read Mar 21 '12 at 2:19
I think this fits the FAQ, the original title just seemed too specific. IMO how to use the console's apps are problems gamers face, unless we want to say it's a Super User thing...but I think G.SE remains the better source even for app use on consoles. – Ben Brocka Mar 21 '12 at 2:28
Sorry, yes I see my original title was trying to be a little too cute. The edit captures my goal perfectly. – EBongo Mar 21 '12 at 3:00

In the current incarnation (March 2012), hit Y to be presented with the search interface (it's displayed at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen). You can use the controller to enter a search query, or use gestures to select characters with Kinect. It does not currently have support for voice control through the Kinect.
