Demi Lovato hosted the 2020 People’s Choice Awards last night (11-15) that aired on E!

The stage was surrounded with hundreds of people on screen via a zoom type format that stretched from floor to ceiling from all angles. Lovato described it as “Virtual in person.”

Jennifer Lopez was presented with the coveted Icon Award in a moving presentation that lasted nearly 13 minutes. In tears, she was seemingly surprised as friends and family popped on screen to congratulate her. Included were, Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger, and Lopez’s children.

Tracee Ellis Ross took home the Fashion Icon Award and  during her speech of gratitude, she listed her mom, the late, Dianna Ross.

Tyler Perry won the People’s Champion Award and accepted with a passionate speech that was meant to inspire.

As the awards show has grown over the years, so have the categories. Newly added for this year were the New Artist, which went to Doja Cat. Collaboration, won by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Song of 2020, won by BTS for “Dynamite.” And the other newly added category was for Soundtrack Song, won by Taylor Swift for “Only The Young” from Miss America.

While practicing social distance, each trophy was left on a podium for the artist to pick up themselves. Over a billion people voted on this year’s People’s Choice Awards which was live from inside the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.
