The 2013 People’s Choice Awards will air on Wednesday, Jan. 9, and the competition for Favorite Pop Artist is pretty stiff this year. Fans of Adele, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and Pink have been putting those pointer fingers to work, voting non-stop for their favorite singer in order to help them snag the coveted, crystal clear statue… but who have you been voting for? We want to inside scoop!
While Adele hasn’t really been in the spotlight since the 2012 Grammy Awards, where she cleaned house thanks to her masterpiece ’21,’ she is still nominated for the 2013 Favorite Pop Artist People’s Choice award. The wave that is ’21′ will not break, and her most current batch of hits (like ‘Rumour Has It’ and ‘Set Fire to the Rain’) kept up their momentum throughout 2012. She also dropped the James Bond theme ‘Skyfall,’ another hauntingly beautiful piece of vocal work from Ms. Atkins.
Meanwhile, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber are also nominated. Both of these pop powerhouses had massive years in 2012, with K.P. releasing her ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ deluxe album and Bieber unleashing his second studio album ‘Believe.’ Perry saw HUGE success with her new singles ‘Part of Me’ and ‘Wide Awake,’ which she performed out on tour and at a number of events this past year, while Bieber embarked on a world tour and ruled the airwaves with ‘Boyfriend,’ ‘As Long as You Love Me,’ and ‘Beauty and a Beat.’
Demi Lovato and Pink are also in the running for the Favorite Pop Artist PCA, and for good reason! On top of her radio domination with ‘Give Your Heart a Break,’ Lovato also inked a deal with ‘X Factor’ and appeared on the FOX reality show alongside fellow new judge Britney Spears, as well as vets L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell. Not bad for a lady who hasn’t even hit 21 yet!
And then there’s Pink, whose album ‘The Truth About Love’ was one of the biggest of 2012. She’s up for a bunch of Grammys for the LP, and her live performances of tracks like ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ and ‘Try’ created some incredibly memorable moments for us in 2012. Oh yeah, and she announced she’ll be going on tour with the Hives in 2013, which is pretty freakin’ awesome.
