Demi Lovato was the hostess with the mostess as she brought the glamour alongside Jennifer Lopez and Jameela Jamil at the E! People’s Choice Awards on Sunday night.

The fan-voted awards show gave out gongs in categories covering music, film and TV, as well as celebrating online culture, with Demi helping the proceedings run without a hitch.

The singer opened the show with a nod to the delayed election result, joking: ‘We made sure to count everyone in Pennsylvania’s vote first’.

She also recapped her 2020, which started with well-received performances at the Grammys and Super Bowl and included a brief engagement to the actor Max Ehrich.

‘This year has been the longest three years of my life,’ she quipped.

Elsewhere, Jennifer Lopez got emotional as she reflected on her career when honored with the Icon award.

She then broke down while watching a video message from her 12-year-old twins Emme and Max.

The Hustlers star wore a striking red ensemble to accept the honor as she reflected on a tumultuous year and the work she put in to get this far in her career.

The ceremony took place at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, with some stars appearing in person while others took part virtually. In place of the usual studio audience, fans appeared via video.

While other recent awards shows have reflected a tumultuous year ravaged by the pandemic and disrupted by social unrest, the People’s Choice Awards were relatively light on politics.

And there were repeated calls throughout the night to wear a mask.
