Today’s the day, people! It’s finally here… People’s Choice Awards 2013 is taking place TONIGHT, and to borrow from my favorite Black Eyed Peas hit, I gotta feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good (good) night!
We could not be more excited – it is hands down THE biggest, most important day of the year (OK, perhaps an exaggeration for some, but not for us here at the PCA production offices) but it’s also the day when you, the fans, get to finally see if your favorites – for whom you have cast a whopping 450 million votes – will take home the coveted crystal trophies.
In addition to the highly anticipated award moments hosted by Kaley Cuoco, we have not one, not two, but three amazing musical performances lined up for you. That’s right – the show will be jam packed with performances by chart topping hit makers Christina Aguilera, Jason Aldean and Alicia Keys. They will be gracing our stage to put on their first major performances of the year for none other than you, the People’s Choice Awards audience. And without giving too much away about what’s in store, just trust me when I say that they are sure to blow the roof off the Nokia Theatre tonight.
As if that weren’t enough, we also have another huge treat in store for you. Five time People’s Choice Award winner Sandra Bullock will be honored with the first-ever award for “Favorite Humanitarian” for her generous philanthropic efforts throughout her career. The Academy Award winning actress has an ongoing commitment to Warren Easton High School in New Orleans following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Sandra adopted Warren Easton Charter High School less than six months after Hurricane Katrina closed the heavily damaged building. She has contributed funds for college scholarships for graduating seniors, band uniforms, athletic equipment and has helped fund the renovation of the auditorium and the construction of a school-based health clinic. To celebrate these efforts, we will present Bullock with a custom Waterford Crystal trophy tonight, and you do not want to miss this emotional, tear jerking moment.
The stars will be coming out in droves. Don’t believe me? Just check out this incredible list of celebs who are scheduled to appear: Jennifer Aniston, Robert Downey Jr., Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Casey Wilson. Not enough for you? How about Chris Colfer, Josh Duhamel, Julianne Hough, Jim Parsons, Ellen Pompeo, Lea Michele, Shemar Moore, Emma Watson and Naomi Watts… oh, and then there’s Jensen Ackles, Stephen Amell, Ellen DeGeneres, Johnny Galecki, Josh Hutcherson, Regina King, Jennifer Lawrence, Chloë Grace Moretz, Olivia Munn, Chris O’Donnell, Jason O’Mara, Jared Padalecki, Eddie Redmayne, The Wanted and many more. ‘Nuf said.
So, tune in tonight at 9/8c on CBS and don’t miss a moment! But first, catch the LIVE red carpet arrivals show, co-hosted by Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger and DailyCandy Chief Correspondent SuChin Pak, featuring special commentary from fashion expert Tim Gunn.
