She's the teen dream with stars in her eyes and the world at her feet. Now, Maddie Ziegler is the proud winner of The People's Choice Award for being the most "Seriously Popular" person of all time (yep, that's a thing). The 13-year-old Dance Moms star -- who shot to global fame thanks to her collaborations with Australian singer Sia -- even pipped Kylie Jenner and Cara Delevingne to the post!

Having finally left the show that made her a star, the teen now has her sights set on the bright lights of Hollywood, with a role in the upcoming The Book of Henry, alongside Naomi Watts, Lee Pace, and Sarah Silverman. She's also working on another project with Sia, a feature film called Sister. "She is actually doing a movie and I'm starring in it," Maddie told the Daily Mail, "It's called Sister but I can't really say anything else. I'll film it in a couple months." Also hitting big at the awards show were Taylor Swift, Dakota Johnson, Channing Tatum, and The Weeknd who won awards for Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Dramatic Actress, Favorite Movie Actor, and Favorite R&B Artist, respectively. The people have spoken.
