Jessica Alba Congratulates the Winners of the Social Star Awards

Jessica Alba has announced the winners of the first-ever Social Star Awards, a 24-hour awards show held in Singapore and live streamed on YouTube to honor socially savvy celebrities and their super fans.

Winners were judged by the numbers of followers, likes, and views they had on social media, based on data from Starcount, which tracks activity from 1.7 billion people across 11 social media networks including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Sina, Tencent, Youku, Renren, Mixi, Orkut, and Vkontakte.

Held at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, the stage was packed with live performances from the internet’s best and brightest, including Aerosmith, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sky Blu, Eric Benet, Blush, and PSY.

Recipients accepted their awards virtually, including One Direction, who said, “We wanna say a massive thank you for the Best Social Star Group of the year award. Thank you for our Starcount award, and we will see you soon!”

Justin Bieber won the top award of the evening: the Social Star Almighty award. His video acceptance speech included a cameo from pop artist Will.i.am. and a heartfelt message to fans: “Thank you to all my fans that helped me win best solo artist,” he said. “You guys are awesome!”
