The awards show would be Katy's first post-split appearance, but the singer confirmed that she will not be attending after all. "Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People's Choice Awards," she tweeted. "I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS."
Still, the show promises to celebrate the best in music, film and television, as chosen by fan voting. Part of the awesome evening will be Demi's live performance, which was announced last month.
"Demi is a brilliant performer, a strong role model and a true fan favorite," executive producer Mark Burnett said in a press release. "We're thrilled to have her on board for the People's Choice Awards and look forward to a truly electrifying performance."
Demi is one of two performers for the night, along with Faith Hill, and she's also up for Favorite Pop Artist, battling Katy, Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga for the honor. The ceremony will take place at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live on Wednesday, January 11, so make sure to set your DVRs for 9PM on CBS.
