Eminem might not attend the recently-wrapped People Choice's Awards, but he was the victorious musician who won the most nods in music list at the January 5 ceremony. The rapper collected four trophies for Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Song, Favorite Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Music Video.
The Slim Shady beat the likes of Enrique Iglesias, Michael Buble, Tim McGraw and Usher in the Favorite Male Artist. He, meanwhile, knocked off fellow rappers Drake, Jay-Z, Ludacris and Snoop Dogg in the Favorite Hip-Hop Artist.
His hit single "Love the Way You Lie" got the most votes over B.o.B's "Airplanes", Katy Perry's "California Gurls", Usher's "OMG" and Lady GaGa's "Telephone". Its music video is fans' favorite, pushing aside Justin Bieber's "Baby", Perry's "Teenage Dream", GaGa's "Telephone" and Shakira's "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)".
Losing twice to Eminem, Katy Perry still managed to walk home with double prizes out of her five nominations. She won Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Online Sensation. "I'll see you on tour this year, summer U.S. California Dreams tour," she told the crowd when proudly accepting the trophies on stage. On Twitter, she gushed, "Thank you SO much! I really appreciate all ur continuous love & support! Remember u have the POWER!"
The other winners included young singers Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift. Gomez, who performed "A Year Without Rain" that night, took home Favorite Breakout Artist with her band The Scene, while her best pal Swift was voted Favorite Country Artist. The country music cutie was presented the title by Elton John.
Usually bringing home at least one gong at similar fans-voted awards show, Bieber who got two nominations did not receive any prize at the Wednesday night event. Beside losing Favorite Music Video to Eminem, the Canadian singer also lost Favorite Breakout Artist to his rumored girlfriend Gomez.
Also honoring fans' favorites in TV and movie, the People's Choice Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Serving as a host was Queen Latifah. Also singing live that evening were Diddy-Dirty Money and Kid Rock.
