With such hits as "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" Shania has “expertly bridged the gap between country and pop music, leaving an everlasting impact on the music industry and pop culture.”
The 2022 People’s Choice Awards will air on NBC and E! at 9 p.m. ET from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

It will mark her first return to the PCAs stage since 2005, when she took home the award for Favorite Country Female Singer.
More About Shania Twain
Last month, Shania made a “grand return” with her latest single “Waking Up Dreaming.” Right out of the gate, Vulture hailed it as “a motivational, synth-laden pop-rocker with few of the country touches you’d expect from Twain, all of the glamour.” Rolling Stone raved, “It gradually builds to a Shania-worthy maximalist sound, a dance party of gleaming guitars and unfettered bliss.” People affirmed, “Shania Twain is baring it all with her new era of music,” and The Tennessean proclaimed, “Country icon Shania Twain’s season in the sun continues with the release of ‘Waking Up Dreaming’.” Perhaps “The Today Show” summed it up best as “an absolute bop.”
“Waking Up Dreaming” marked Shania’s first release in five years, since 2017’s critically acclaimed “Now,” which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, and No. 1 on the top country albums chart upon arrival.
The press release said, “It also arrives on the heels of her blockbuster career-spanning documentary ‘Not Just A Girl’ – streaming on Netflix now. It was notably produced by Mercury Studios and directed by Joss Crowley. To accompany the film, she also presented the compilation album ‘Not Just A Girl (The Highlights),’ available here.
“And in other news this once-in-a-generation renaissance woman joins the star-studded cast of ‘Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration’ in the role of Mrs. Potts, premiering on ABC Dec. 15 and streaming on Disney+ as of Dec. 16.”
