Both Eminem and Rihanna earned a myriad of honors at the 37th Annual People’s Choice Awards on January 5th. Eminem won four awards: Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Hip-Hop Artist, Favorite Song, and Favorite Music Video. The latter two awards were shared with Rihanna who also earned Favorite Pop Star at the show. The two are also side-by-side this week on the Billboard charts; Eminem is at #2 with Recovery while Rihanna resides at #3 with Loud. Neither artist attended the event.
Katy Perry won two awards for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Web Celeb, she accepted her awards hinting at summer dates for her California Dreams Tour.
Usher, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Paramore each nabbed one award. Paramore did not attend the ceremony as their band is going through a rebuilding phase after losing two members last month. They are set to talk to MTV on Friday (Jan. 7) addressing the issue.
Also, Selena Gomez, who picked up Favorite New Artist performed her hit A Year Without Rain, at the show. The album of the same name is in stores now.
Suprising snubs, both Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber went home empty handed. Also suprising, Britney Spears lost in the Favorite TV Guest Star category. Tough Luck!
What did you think of the People’s Choice Awards!
As predicted a very purple Katy Perry picked up “Favorite Female Artist” and “Favorite Web Celeb” at the People’s Choice Awards. The award was aided by her 3 #1 singles from her album Teenage Dream.
The diva was up against fierce competition that included Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.
Perry left the stage saying that we can see her on her “California Dreams” Tour this summer. Offical dates have yet to be announced.
What do you think? Were you happy to see Katy win?
Taylor Swift is currently presenting the award for “Favorite Movie Actor”, but it is not her highlight of her night. The country star picked up “Favorite Country Singer” earlier in the evening. We predicted that btw. Earlier this year Swift released Speak Now which sold one-million copies in one week, and became the third highest selling album of the year.
Another winner of the night was Selena Gomez & The Scene for “Favorite New Artist”, it was a shock and makes viewers wonder whether the awards are legitimate, or simply award people who are in the audience. She beat out front-runner/boyfriend Justin Beiber,
What do you think of the nights winners thus far?
P.S. Johnny Depp won
We LOVE Miranda Cosgrove! She acts her age, is hillarious, and makes fun music. After releasing the pop princess’ smash debut Sparks Fly last Spring Cosgrove is prepping the release of her second album. She premiered her first single Dancing Crazy and it is amazing! Its fun and we cannot wait for her record. The song is very Miley (circa 7 Things) a little Ke$ha for the auto-tuned chorus and she sounds exactly like Taylor Swift at the bridge, and we love it!
Can’t wait for the new album!
Rating: **** (out of 5 stars)
What do you think do you like Dancing Crazy?
Taylor Swift will rule the Billboard 200 yet again this week according to projections from Hits Daily Double. The chart (which will be released offically tomorrow) says Swift will top the charts with her album Speak Now which sold nearly 75k units.

Not far behind are Kanye West and Nicki Minaj who are both expected to sell around 62k, HDD has Kanye leading by 700 units, but they will be close.
This year is the one-year anniversary of Susan Boyle’s final week atop the charts with her album I Dreamed A Dream before Ke$ha knocked it out of the top spot with Animal. This week, Ke$ha is at #17 with Cannibal (30k) and Susan Boyle is at #39 with The Gift (15k)
Not bad for after Christmas sales? What CD Did U Pick Up This Week?
Eminem’s seventh studio album Recovery first topped the Billboard 200 in June, but it seems it may top the charts yet again. Hits DailyDouble is reporting that next weeks charts will be a toss-up between Eminem and current chart superior Taylor Swift. Neither of the releases for these album occured in December or November which shows that 2010 was owned by a few Blockbuster albums rather than many that sold above-average.
Next week’s album charts will be driven by iTunes and other music stores giftcards. The teen market will be in demand, so it is projected that Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West will occupy spots #3-5 on the albums charts; Bruno Mars and Katy Perry are also expected to rank in high positions.
What do you think? What did you buy with your giftcards?
