Taylor look sad in a ll the pictures.. like forcing a smile. I see the bracelet that Justin gave Selena, she’s wearing it with both dresses.

LOL! What a Joke of a show!!!!!

it’s absually a good song!

I’m glad that she won cause I feel like she never really had any confidence about her music and singing, which shows. Hopefully she can change that cause she is just an average singer but can improve a lot more. PLUS she deserves it!!! her and taylor deserve their award. Both of them have a great friendship and are doing well in the public eye. I hope their success continues and also they won’t end up like the others.

I totally love selena’s dresses. Want them both :)
she looks stunning

It is sad that this is what the music industry has become.

She’s a cutie & muy caliente! 18, right? :)

It show how a dedicated actress, movie starlet, and singer can win out everytime over a singer who is just a YouTube sensation.
And who was nominated for the same award but never even had the courtesy to show up at the PCA. Although all the other celebrities who was nominated and didn’t win at least showed up.
Again it shows the difference between professional celebrities and just a YouTube sensation.

What are you going on about JJ? Only winners showed up.

wow she always has the best dresses during the red carpet and awards, she is stunning!!!! im happy that she won :)

Mage my mistake then on that part and I apologize, about him not being their. but not about the professional celebrity part.
And also Mage I don’t know about most girls but if I had a supposed boyfriend I would like him to escort me to the show for some support and happiness for me. Not just the band members who by the way look great.

A pretty face but can’t sing…sad…she should just stick with Acting! people choice award cuz people love her doesn’t mean she has the talent to sing. I don’t hate her…love her as an actress but Singing…she really give me lost appetite listen to her…I’m sorry but really?

Selena, you should have kept on the pink cocktail dress. It was much better and the other dress seemed like your trying a bit hard to grow up too fast? Just my opinion. You are a disney girl, don’t try to rebel like every single other one has done in the past.

she is beautiful! i loved her in the movie ramona!

Give her credit where credit is due, could you stand up in front of that many of your peers and senior in the business, and sing.
I think she did a wonderful job and was gracious in her acceptance speech.

The performance was surprisingly good. I REALLY liked the song she sanged. I seriously that she was gonna tank or lipsynch. Good for her, guess not all Disney Channel stars are untalented.

Its sad that beauty overpowers talent. Anyone can look gorgeous with hollywood makeup. Just look at selena pre-fame when she was in middle school. She lacks singing abilities. I am not trying to be rude but she should stick to acting. Whats the point in attempting to be a triple threat when your average at each thing. Singing is not her forte. I have seen muliple videos of her singing lives but what sounds lovely is the autobox that sings for her. She can be a great actress if she just sticks to acting. It was cool she tried the singing thing but its not for her. There are so many people who have awesome singing chops but overlooked because they arent beautiful. its so upsetting. Either way i congratulate her for her win but for her performance i rather hold my applause for someone else.

they’re so young but so f*cked up already

No Bieb? Maybe someone told her she could go to jail for that crap.

she is so beautiful and hot^^ and im so glad that she and her band won!!!!!!! i think she deserved it after all the hate on twitter etc. she gets sexier^^

and i know she is not the greatest singer in the world and i dont expect every singer to sing like christina aguilera or celine dion but i personally love her voice and her songs^^

she really really REALLY can’t sing can she?!

Perfect body, cute face. I don’t know if she can sing, I don’t know her that much.

Well I think a little of it was to blam on the sound guy. I think he was asleep because he could not stay up with Selena singing you could barely hear her in the low part of her song. Although did anyone catch that she never even missed a beat when it appeared that her ear piece almost fell out.
Also what about Queen Latifah’s who suppose to be a well known singer what the heck was that noise she was making at the opening of the show.
And you have the nerve to talk about a up and coming star. And on top of that she must have been good she won didn’t she over Mars who is a very good singer. and she does have some gold and platium records and song on the market someone other the the negative people here thinks she can sing.

question..the pic with her holding the award and the rest of the band trying to touch it is just a funny pic? or that’s how the things really are in the band? lol I bet for the second one :P

It was the PEOPLE’S choice awards, so if you don’t think she’s a good enough singer, then you can only kick yourself for not voting for who you thought deserved to win. she was very sweet and very modest when she accepted her award. so congrats selena on your award, you look stunning

@Alondra: you’re right!

Gorgeous and she’s improving
as a singer.

anybody?anybody? @ 01/07/2011 at 10:15 am

i don’t think this is the best song to sing live… her voice sounded weak in some parts. but i love her, she has classy stage presence, but nothing exciting. i do think she deserved the award and imagine getting the chance to sing up there… nervewracking! but i love selena gomez and hope she continues like she’s doing now

@lovelydee:
Right on the mark!!!!!! I quess people think others just get up one morning and start singing perfectly.
She is young did michael jackson become know world wide after is third or fourth song I don’t think so.
So give Gomez credit where credit is due, she improves with every song and everyday. Plus she does preform everyday she has movies and tv she trying to complete along with her singing.
