People's Choice Awards: Aguilera Gets Music Icon Award

Christina Aguilera was on Tuesday honoured with People’s Choice Awards first-ever Music Icon award, which she received from her “Pa’ Mis Muchachas” collaborator Becky G. The 24-year-old praised Aguilera’s instantly recognizable voice in presenting her with the award.

Prior to accepting the People’s Choice Awards prize, Aguilera, 40, performed a medley of some of her hits, iconic throwbacks and new offerings, while completing several outfit changes.
She said in her acceptance speech directly after singing that it was “an exceptional honour” to receive the “surreal” award.

“I have always strived for my music to communicate messages of empowerment, whether it’s speaking my own truths or giving voice to those unable to do so on their own,” continued Aguilera.

“My artistry has always been for the fighters in this world, for those who face adversity, for those wanting to evoke change, my music is for you.”

“Believing in yourself is often the biggest obstacle of all, and throughout the years I’ve heard your stories about the impact of songs like ‘Beautiful,’ ‘Fighter,’ ‘Can’t Hold Us Down,’ and yes, even ‘Dirrty.’ Thank you for your stories,” she added.

“Thank you for listening. And thank you for fighting. You inspire me every day.”

Last week, NBC announced that she would be honoured with the award as executive Jen Neal called the songstress “the voice of our generation.”

“She not only has an extraordinary voice but as a creator, produces music that evokes true emotion and resonates across so many different demographics,” Neal said in a press release.

“Christina is an idol and we cannot wait to celebrate her successes and present her with the inaugural ‘Music Icon’ award.”

This is Aguilera’s second awards show since releasing the lead single off her upcoming record. She last attended the Latin Grammys, where she performed “Pa’ Mis Muchachas” with Becky G, Nicki Nicole and Nathy Peluso.

Aguilera has been nominated for several People’s Choice awards in the past. She took home the “People’s Voice” special achievement award at the 2013 awards show. That year, Aguilera performed “Blank Page.”
