Shania Twain, 57, came to slay at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards! The singer attended the award show as the Music Icon Award recipient, and she looked like a queen when she arrived on the red carpet on Dec. 6. For her award show look, Shania referenced her iconic 1997 video for “That Don’t Impress Me Much” with a leopard hooded scarf and bustier top over a sheer mesh shirt. She added a long black skirt to the outfit to tie it together, updating the outfit which was clearly an homage to the Come On Over single. In the original video, she wears head-to-toe leopard, including a hooded robe with built-in gloves.
The country/pop singer’s look was complete with her pink hued hair styled in feathered waves. Her glam look was also stunning, as she rocked pink eye shadow accented with gold glitter. To top off the outfit, Shania accessorized with a coral lipstick.
Shortly after, Shania rocked the house with an epic medley performance that included her hits like “Any Man Of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman,” for the audience of cheering fans and fellow celebrities. She did, however, change up one significant lyric in “That Don’t Impress Me Much” — instead of name dropping Brad Pitt, she swapped his name out for fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds. The Deadpool star was in the audience and mouthed back, “oh my god, me?”

She later gave a lengthy speech as she accepted the Music Icon award. “Thank you so much for presenting me with this award and for highlighting my work as having a significant impact. I’m not sure if that’s the right thing to say, but that’s always my wish: to inspire people with my music,” she said before mentioning her late mother Sharon Morrison who died in 1987. “I always miss my mother right now at these moments in life. She would have loved watching her little girl living this moment right now. But my fans, my friends, my team – you are the ones who really fill that space. Not my mother’s space, but you’re here with me and you’re celebrating, we’re celebrating together, and you’ve made me feel loved and special my whole working life. And I will always be grateful for that, thank you,” she also said on stage.
Shania’s medley will include her new song “Waking Up Dreaming,” which is the lead single off her Feb. 2023 album, Queen of Me. This is Shania’s first album since 2017. She announced the new song back In September, just weeks after her Netflix documentary, Not Just A Girl, premiered.
To support the album, Shania will be embarking on The Queen Of Me tour beginning in April 2023. She confirmed the tour in October. It will kick off in Spokane, Washington in April 2023, running through the summer in the United States and Canada. The tour will then continue in Sept. 2023 with dates in Europe. Ahead of her People’s Choice Awards appearance, Shania also revealed that there will be a second leg to the tour, beginning in October 2023 in Texas and concluding in Canada in mid-November.
For the tour, Shania’s opening acts include some incredible country music stars and rising stars. Lindsay Ell, Mickey Guyton, Priscilla Block and Breland are amongst the artists who will be opening up for the legendary singer at some of her shows. Kelsea Ballerini will also open up at the Nashville show in June. Kelsea has long admired Shania and listed her as one of her inspirations, and she honored the singer with an epic tribute performance at the ACM Honors event earlier this year.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
