The final nominees for the 40th annual People's Choice Awards won't be announced until November 5, but the polls are now open at PeoplesChoice.com for fans to vote for their favorites in the preliminary rounds.
Leading the pack in the rock categories is Imagine Dragons , who scored a total of four preliminary nominations. Imagine Dragons will be competing against Capital Cities and Lorde for Favorite Breakout Artist, while their hit “Radioactive” will do battle with Daft Punk ’s “Get Lucky” for Favorite Song. Imagine Dragons will also face off against Fall Out Boy , The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons in both the Favorite Band and Favorite Alternative Band categories, the latter of which includes Avenged Sevenfold , Muse , Of Monsters and Men , The National , Nine Inch Nails , Paramore , Queens of the Stone Age and Vampire Weekend . None of these artists will advance, however, unless fans actually vote them into the final top five in each category.
The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards will be presented Wednesday, January 8 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
