The 2016 Peoples Choice Awards Winners & Performances

PCA-2016

The Peoples Choice Awards honor artists in music, television, movies, digital and everywhere in between.

All the honors are voted on by fans, who’ve furiously voted for their favorites since last November.

Shawn Mendes performed “Stitches” before Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello joined him to sing their song “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” Jason Derulo sang a medley of hits, including “Want To Want Me” and Jordan Smith from The Voice performed a cover of “You Are So Beautiful” alongside David Foster on piano.






Britney Spears, though she was expected to appear but did not, won in her category for Favorite Social Media Celebrity. She offered an explanation minutes after the show concluded as to why she didn’t show, saying:

“I wish I could have been at the People’s Choice Awards tonight but I started feeling sick. Thank you so much for voting for me for Favorite Social Media Celebrity! This is dedicated to my fans, the Britney Army – without you this would not be possible. I love that I can share my world with you and that you are so supportive of me. Remember to be kind online and spread love <3 #thankyou
