Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" scores Favorite Album, while Spears gets nod for Favorite Pop Artist

Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" was 2013's top-selling album, and at the 2014 People's Choice Awards, he continued his hot streak by claiming the night's top music prize: Favorite Album.

The pop singer scored the honor alongside fellow musicians, actors and more at Wednesday night's (Jan. 8) awards, accepting the prize while thanking Ellen DeGeneres, next to whom he was seated at the ceremony, "for all the personal inspiration and the cookies. [She] bakes a hell of a cookie." He was also full of thanks for his parents "for continuing to instill in me that no dream is too big."

Timberlake added awards for Favorite Male Artist and Favorite R&B Artist.

Britney Spears found time to attend the ceremony in midst of her current Vegas residency and was handsomely rewarded, garnering the honor of Favorite Pop Artist. The award win solidified the singer's continued standing as one of pop's most popular performers; the awards are determined by fan votes, a commodity of which Spears has found no shortage over the years.

Demi Lovato and Katy Perry were the only artists besides Timberlake to garner more than one award. Lovato received nods for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Music Fan Following, while Perry's "Roar" won for Favorite Song and Favorite Music Video.

In a partnership with Walgreen's, the awards handed out an honor for Favorite Humanitarian, a distinction earned by Jennifer Hudson and sister Julia, who head the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, providing assistance to children to, according to its website, "enable them to grow to be productive, confident and happy adults."

"Glee" earned its share of awards as well. The musical TV show took home nods for Favorite Comedic TV Actor (Chris Colfer) and Favorite TV Gal Pals (Rachel & Santana). Additionally, "The Voice" scored the prize for Favorite Competition TV Show.

Three different musical performers took to the stage, starting with Sara Bareilles. The Grammy's Album of the Year dark horse nominee trotted out top 40 hit "Brave," turning in a soaring vocal while looming over a piano. Brad Paisley followed, digging in with new "Wheelhouse" single "The Mona Lisa," bringing a dash of rock to the telecast with a shredding guitar solo to go along with a fist-pumping group chorus. Eventually, Paisley leapt off the stage and mingled with the audience, at which point his cowboy hat was stolen by Heidi Klum.

The No. 2 song in the country, OneRepublic's "Counting Stars," closed the evening in terms of live performances. The adult-alternative hit received a straightforward approach from frontman Ryan Tedder and co., the singer moving effortlessly between the song's lower and higher registers.
