selena-gomez.jpgPyrotek Special Effects was on hand to add some effects at the 37th annual People's Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Queen Latifah began the show with a cover of Taio Cruz's hit song Dynamite. Her performance ended with an all-fire cue that included silver mines, comets, and white flash with bang to kick off the show.

Kid Rock who is set to commence his Born Free Tour performed God Bless Saturday Night, which included various flames and pyrotechnics that were incorporated into the stage set. Pyrotek collaborated with Elia Popov implementing a four-way flame rack which was cued by Pyrotek's Operator Kevin Hughes who worked alongside Pyrotechnician Dimitri Timohovich. The performance which included large columns of flame was capped off with a 20 second Silver Gerb waterfall positioned upstage.


Pop Band Selena Gomez & The Scene performed their hit single A Year Without Rain, which included low-lying fog and cryo jets cued to the closing beats of the chorus. Upon completion of their performance Gomez & The Scene received an award for Favorite Breakout Artist.
