Jessica Simpson will be the opening act at the upcoming January 10th People's Choice Awards doing "a very special performance." "Jessica's true vocal talent, unlimited energy and undeniable charisma will truly be a great addition to this year's show," executive producer Carol Donovan said in a statement Thursday. Jessica's version of "These Boots are Made For Walking," from the Dukes of Hazzard movie, is nominated in the "Favorite Song in a Movie" category. Blech. I thought her voice sounded weird and fake in that song. Simpson's publicist, Rob Shuter, confirmed her appearance but wouldn't elaborate. She better not come out on stage and sing some sad song trying to get sympathy! Since it's the People's Choice Awards and aside from the fact that they blow, winners are reportedly notified ahead of time if they win, so it's my guess that Jessica will get the award in that category. With her live performance and all, would Papa Joe have it any other way?
