2012 People’s Choice Award Nominations: Katy Perry and Lady Gaga Dominate, While Beyonce Finds Redemption

by (@unclegrambo)

Katy Perry, Beyoncé, and Lady Gaga are the cream of the crop in the music industry these days, at least according to the nominations for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards, which were released this morning. Perry, the 2011 People’s Choice Award winner for Favorite Female Artist, scored an impressive five nominations from the proletariat in categories like Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist and Favorite Tour Headliner.

Perhaps more impressive, though, are Beyoncé’s five nominations, especially her nod from the monoculture for 4 in the Favorite Album Of The Year category. 4 has been one of the more maligned records of the year, thanks to the fact that it has yet to produce a hit single on par with “Crazy In Love” (off Dangerously In Love), “Irreplaceable” (B’Day) or “Single Ladies” (I Am Sasha Fierce), not to mention the torrent of juicy scuttlebutt regarding Sony’s alleged disappointment in the album before consumers even had a chance to hear the full thing. Still, this morning’s nominations signal that the public-at-large appears to be unfazed by the industry chatter People’s Choice Awards nominations may not be as prestigious as those bestowed by the Grammys, but we’re guessing that Beyoncé’s camp is celebrating a minor victory this morning.

The People’s Choice Awards will air on CBS on January 12, 2012, and we’ve got the complete list of all of the music-related nominations for you below:
