One Direction have been nominated for four People’s Choice awards at this years event. Nominations include Favourite Breakout Artist which British rival band The Wanted have also been nominated.

1D also claimed nominations for Favourite Song, Album and Favourite Music Fan Following. The boys will have strong competition from Justin Bieber who is also nominated for these three awards along with nominations for Favourite Male and Pop Artist.

As always the People’s Choice Awards are voted by you and we could easily see some more rivalry between both fan-bases.  Directioners have already shown their strength this year by outvoting Beliebers at the VMAs wining the “The Most Shareworthy Video” award.

Currently One Direction have won every award they have been nominated for and with their highly publicised dedicated  fan-base its likely they will continue this streak. Although we must not dismiss the strength of Beliebers who have also famously shown dedication for their idol. With neither artist ever winning a People’s Choice Award we could see some rivalry between the artists themselves.

The People’s Choice Awards will air on January 9 on CBS. Make sure you tune in to see who will claim their awards.
