Lauren Spencer-Smith will perform her hit “Fingers Crossed” on the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, which are set to air on both NBC and E! on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The song reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January.
Shania Twain, this year’s Music Icon Award recipient, will also take the stage at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., to perform a medley of her hits as well as her new single “Waking Up Dreaming.” The new song is from her upcoming sixth studio album, Queen of Me.
It’s doubtless just a coincidence, but both singers are Canadian, as is actor and budding director Ryan Reynolds, who will receive the People’s Icon Award. (Spencer-Smith was born in England, but moved to Canada when she was 3.)
Lizzo is set to receive the People’s Champion Award but is not slated to perform.
Kenan Thompson will host the 2022 People’s Choice Awards. Amy Poehler, Billy Porter, David Spade, Ana Gasteyer and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez are among the presenters.
“Live From E!: The 2022 People’s Choice Awards” will air at 7 p.m. ET/PT on E!. Both shows are produced by Den of Thieves, with executive producers Jesse Ignjatovic, Evan Prager and Barb Bialkowski.
