Singer/rapper Becky G was recently nominated for a People's Choice Award in the Favorite Breakout Artist category.

In the last year, Becky G's name has quickly risen as a household name. When the breakout star isn't working as the face of CoverGirl, she's opening for pop sensation Katy Perry and cranking out hit singles.

At just 17, she's become the latest pop princess.

"Becky G" is short for Rebbeca Marie Gomez, and like Lorde (short for Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor), she's also a young adult trapped in a teenager's body.

Becky G carries with her a seriousness and determination that's fueling what may be an award-studded career.

She's recently enjoyed fame coming off the single release SHOWER from her debut album, and has climbed up the ranks with her latest single, CAN'T STOP DANCING. Christina Garibaldi at MTV writes: "Becky teamed up with Dr.

Luke for the track, and it's pure pop with a beat that has a Caribbean-style flair. The teen sings about not wanting a dance to end, a feeling that most of us can relate to."

Along with Becky G, chart-topping singers such as Charli XCX, Meghan Trainor, and Tove Lo have been nominated for the coveted prize--three singers who have seen amazing accolades for their hits BOOM CLAP, ALL ABOUT THAT BASS, and STAY HIGH.

Voting for the People's Choice Awards began Tuesday, October 21. You can cast your vote here, or online at
