After a 15-year career of highs and lows and highs again, Britney Spears has finally won a People's Choice Award.

Spears took home Favorite Pop Artist at Wednesday's ceremony, beating out ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake as well as Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Demi Lovato for the award. Spears was exuberant in her acceptance speech.

“Thank you! Wow. This is so cool! This is awesome," she said. "I was not expecting this. And it’s because of all of you that I am able to do what I love to do, and I just want to thank my family, my beautiful family. My boys at home. My management team and all of my friends, I love you dearly. Thank you.”

The People's Choice Awards also featured another first for Spears. It was her first official awards show appearance with boyfriend David Lucado, who got plenty of camera time sitting next to the pop star.
