Last evening Taylor Swift won the Best Female Artist Award at the People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia Theatre for the 36th annual ceremony. Carrie Underwood won for Best Country Artist and Lady Gaga took home the award for Favorite Pop Artist. That award was sure to be a surprise to many, but considering the rise in Lady Gaga’s popularity, it shouldn’t have.
Taylor Swift has the top selling album in 2009 with her album “Fearless”, which sold about 3,200,000 just barely beating out Susan Boye’s “I Had a Dream”, which sold about 3,100,000 units.
Some of the other winners of the Peoples Choice Awards included Keith Urban for Favorite Male Artist, Paramore for Best Rock Band, and Mariah Carey for Favorite R&B Artist.
