(CBS) Even though Katy Perry wasn't in attendance her fans still showed her love at the 38th annual People's Choice Awards, voting the singer to win five awards, the most anyone took home at the show.
Perry backed out of the ceremony earlier this week. While she didn't give a reason why she was skipping the event, the awards would've been her first public appearance following her husband Russell Brand's divorce filing last month.
The "Firework" singer won awards for favorite female artist, tour headliner, song of the year for "E.T." with Kanye West, music video for "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," and TV guest star for her appearance on "How I Met Your Mother."
"THANK U to every1 who voted for me for the @peopleschoice tonight! We won so many! Now I need to get more books 2 successfully display them!" Perry tweeted.
