The LA bash was teeming with stars voted for online by fans to win the People’s Choice Awards, which recognizes the people and work of popular culture.
Things couldn’t be going much better for Firework singer Katy Perry, who ended 2010 with a wedding and entered the New Year with a bang, lighting up the stage in a neon frock to accept two awards for Favourite Female Artists and Favourite Online Sensation. The 26-year-old singer, whose album Teenage Dream was a hit in the charts last year, thanked the crowd, saying: “I’ve had an incredible year.”
Katy later took to her Twitter to thank her fans: “OH MY WE WON TWO PEOPLES CHOICE AWARDS! Thank you SO much!”
“I really appreciate all ur continuous love & support! Remember u have the POWER!”
The People’s Choice Awards allows fans to vote for winners in categories spanning music, movies, TV and more.
Taylor Swift, whose whirlwind relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal recently came to a sudden halt, beat the likes of Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood to win the award for Favourite Country Artist. Elton John, who recently became a dad, presented the award to the 21 year old. “Congratulations to you, you are Dad now,” Taylor said, before adding how “honored” she was to be receiving the award from him.
And shrugging off death threats from jealous fans after being snapped kissing Justin Bieber, a glittering Selena Gomez took to the stage to accept her award for Best Breakthrough Artist.
