People Magazine to Launch Own Award Show

image

Another day and another award show has been created.

This time, the award show at hand was created on behalf of People Magazine, everyone’s favorite grocery check out line gossip mag which we all know are guilty of checking out once or twice while waiting in line to pay.

The People Magazine Awards claims that it will honor the “cultural forces of the year” with a star-studded gala on Dec. 18.

We are a little scared to ask what they mean by “cultural forces” since usually it revolves around certain celebutantes that need to disappear off the face of the earth alongside their “husband.”

The two-hour special will air live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel where celebs such as Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Hart, Kate Hudson and Michael Keaton are set to appear.

But in between celebs praising each other for their “cultural influences” there will be some music acts as well.

5 Seconds of Summer will conclude their year of taking over the airwaves by performing at the event. This comes a week after they won their first American Music Award for “New Artist” and on the heels of announcing they will be releasing a new album by the end of the year, though it’s only going to be a live album.

Also slated to perform at the show will be Maroon 5. The band have also had a decent year, though not as good as 5SOS in our opinion. They released their new studio album V a few months ago and revealed plans to hit the road next year on a tour to support the recently released record.

American Music Award Winners List

ama

Another Sunday night, another music award show has called it a day. The American Music Awards which was hosted by “Fireball” head honcho Pitbull gave us performances from some of the biggest names in music at the moment including Selena Gomez performing her new song “The Heart Wants What it Wants,” Taylor Swift opening with “Blank Space,” Fergie returning to the music world with “LA Love” and our personal favorites, 5 Seconds of Summer covering The Romantics’ hit “What I Like About You.”

All performances of the evening can currently be seen here.
