Fall Out Boy–along with Iggy Azalea and Lady Antebellum–have been announced to perform at the annual People’s Choice Awards on January 7th 2015. Check out more info below.
Get ready for a People’s Choice Awards that you’ll remember for “Centuries.”
Fall Out Boy has just been confirmed to take the stage at this year’s show. No strangers to the PCAs, the pop-rock vets took home the award for “Favorite Alternative Band” last year.
They will be joined by Lady Antebellum and Iggy Azalea, whose performance was announced earlier today.
“We are thrilled that Iggy Azalea and Fall Out Boy will be joining us and performing live for our fans,” said executive producer Mark Burnett. “Iggy’s multiple Grammy, People’s Choice, and MTV Video Music Award nominations speak to her popularity with the music industry and fans alike. As a past People’s Choice Awards winner, Fall Out Boy will see firsthand how much their fans love them when they take that stage live for the first time at the show.”
Though fans will have to wait until January 20 to hear the newest Fall Out Boy album, American Beauty/American Psycho, the band have spent much of their incredible year releasing new material, including “Immortals,” which was written for the Big Hero 6 soundtrack, and “Centuries.” Earlier this year, the guys even teased Rick Ross’ cameo in “Centuries” to People’s Choice. The band also recorded “Only the Bulls,” an updated version of the Chicago Bulls theme song with fellow Windy City native Lupe Fiasco. Over the course of 2014, Fall Out Boy racked up a whopping 17 award nominations and six wins, including the title of Alternative Press’ Band of the Year.
And just in case their schedules weren’t busy enough, Pete Wentz welcomed his second son, Saint Lazlo, while both Joe Trohman and Patrick Stump welcomed their first children (Ruby Trohman and Declan Stump, respectively) into the world.
All of that’s going to make it hard for the band to top this year, but kicking off 2015 with a performance at the People’s Choice Awards should get things started on the right foot.
The People’s Choice Awards will air live from the Nokia Theater L.A. Live on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) on CBS. You can buy tickets to the show here!
