Of course, Lizzo will also be celebrated for her contributions to music and television. 

She now joins previous recipients Dwayne “The Rock” JohnsonTyler PerryP!nk and Bryan Stevenson.

The singer will collect her honor on December 6 and could bring home up to five additional trophies that night.  Lizzo has been nominated for Female Artist of 2022, Song of 2022 for “About Damn Time,” Album of 2022 for Special, Social Celebrity of 2022 and Competition Show of 2022 — the latter for her Amazon series Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

It should be noted her reality show earned her an Emmy Award, which means she is officially halfway to EGOT status.

The 2022 People’s Choice Awards will be broadcast live from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on Tuesday, December 6, at 9 p.m. on NBC and E!.
