What you missed: Random guy crashes the stage at People's Choice Awards

The People's Choice Awards followed in the VMAs' footsteps Wednesday night, encountering their very own Kanye West. For example, Hayes Grier earned a spot on the ABC reality competition "Dancing With the Stars" for his fame on the social media service Vine, where he has more than 4 million followers.

The man, wearing a red jacket, plugged rapper Kevin Gates as well as Kanye West when he grabbed the mic. "Shout out to Kevin Gates, he has an album", the man said, then added, "Yeezy just jumped over the Jumpman ... yessir".

"I don't think you need to have a talk show to be nice to people, to do what I'm doing", she explained.

Glee star Jane Lynch presented the awards show by starting with an entertaining opening act featuring a musical performance-she performed her rendition of 2015's pop hit "Shut Up and Dance", asking everyone to instead "Stand Up and Choose with Me".

Diesel, who took home two trophies for Furious 7, got teary-eyed remembering his late co-star Paul Walker.

"I love that I can share my world with you and that you are so supportive of me. Thank you so much". "But I have to say, it feels a little unusual to accept an award for being nice and generous and kind, which is what we're all supposed to do as humans".

Now that "pulling a Kanye" has entered the vernacular, nary an awards show passes without the risk that someone will rush the stage uninvited.

DeGeneres, a People's Choice regular, accepted both daytime TV host and the Humanitarian Award. "Would I call myself the Dalai Lama of daytime?"
