It’s going to be a battle of the BFFs at the People’s Choice Awards 2016 in January when Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez go head-to-head in not one but TWO categories!

The pair of superstars are notorious fast friends, but the gloves will have to come off early next year as they’re strong contenders for both Favourite Female Artist and Favourite Pop Artist, after the nominations for the 2016 ceremony were revealed this week.

Elsewhere both Taylor and The Weeknd are among the most nominated stars overall, but the likes of Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran all have several nods, proving that they really have been the BIGGEST stars of the past twelve months.

The People’s Choice Awards 2016 takes place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on 6th January and is hosted by Glee star Jane Lynch this time around.
