Last night, Hollywood said thank you to the fans who voted a record breaking 175 million times for all of their favorites. That’s right, the People’s Choice Awards kicked off award show season with a bang on CBS. Hosted by Queen Latifah she started the show off with a random, irrelevant song and dance number which really confused me. It wasn’t an original song, nor a parody. Just Queen Latifah doing a terrible cover of the year’s hit song, Dynamite by Taio Cruz. The dancers on stage were good but her opening really served no purpose.
Besides our host, the stars really turned it out for a night on the town. The gowns from the ladies were extraordinary and the men looked dapper in their suits and ties. New dads Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka sat in the front row along with the Kardashians, Hellcats co-stars Aly Michalka & Ashley Tisdale and straight off the plane to the red carpet were the famous trio from the Twilight series.
Voting had closed before the new year except for two categories: Favorite New TV Drama and Favorite New TV Comedy. We were also treated to a few performances in the evening. Selena Gomez & The Scene who were voted best breakout artist this year performed their hit A Year Without Rain and hip hop/rock/country superstar Kid Rock also knocked out a stellar performance.
