Team Super rejoice! Lilly Singh is officially your Favorite YouTube Star at People’s Choice Awards 2017!
The Canadian-born YouTube sensation, who also goes by the name of iiSuperWomanii, was up against some stiff competition, which included fellow YouTubers PewDiePie, Shane Dawson, Tyler Oakley, and Miranda Sings, but ultimately walked away as this year’s top winner.
Singh learned of her big win on the People’s Choice Awards red carpet where we officially presented her with the award for Favorite YouTube Star. For her part, Singh was overjoyed to learn that she had won and sent out a heartfelt message to the fans as she accepted the first award of the night.
“This is so awesome because it’s from the people. The people are at the core of what I do and it’s such a huge honor,” said Singh.
Of course, Singh couldn't leave without giving a heartfelt shoutout to her fans for their continued support.
"This is for Team Super," continued Singh. "I am so grateful. Thank you so much-- this is for the digital space [and] for everyone who follows a passion-- I am so proud of you. Thank you."
Singh’s hard work ethic, positive attitude, and penchant for comedy are just some of the reason she’s been able to build the following she’s got today. With over 10.7 million subscribers on YouTube, and a new book on the way, we’re sure we’ll be hearing a lot about Lilly Singh for years to come.
Congratulations on winning Favorite YouTube Star, Lilly— we hope you’re celebrating accordingly!
