Teen Choice Awards
Yesterday, July 22, the 2012 Teen Choice Awards were held in University City, Calif., and a bevy of young musical beauties worked it on the pink carpet before the show. Demi Lovato, Bella Thorne, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Victoria Justice and Carly Rae Jepsen were just a few of the songstresses who struck a pose for the paps outside of Gibson Amphitheatre -- who do you think was the best dressed out these six starlets?
Taylor Swift got another opportunity to display her "I can't believe it!" face when she captured the Choice Female Artist of the Year honor at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards tonight (July 22), beating out an impressive group of superstars that included Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Adele.
Justin Bieber performed a medley of 'Boyfriend' and 'As Long as You Love Me' in a futuristic space suit-inspired outfit at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards tonight (July 22), which was also his girlfriend Selena Gomez's birthday! We were expecting him to throw a bday shout out to his lady love from the stage, but alas, we (and she) didn't get it. Ah, that's okay, though, since Sel, who turned 20, gets alone time with him, which is probably better than any public declaration.
Tonight (July 22) Selena Gomez received the best birthday gift ever. During the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, Selena Gomez and the Scene won Choice Music Group, as voted on by more than a million of America’s teens. The newest choice of America's teens beat out LMFAO, the Wanted, Lady Antebellum and Gym Class Heroes for the honor of taking home a shiny surfboard.
Flo Rida was blinged out to the nth degree when he took the stage at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards tonight (July 22.) While he wore a sleeveless denim vest, it was both his mic and the mic stand that were encrusted with blinding jewels and his name. It was like brass knuckles on steroids. Flo most certainly goes big, with his mics and his hooks! It certainly made a statement. But the bedazzled equipment took a backseat once the camera noticed Taylor Swift rocking the heck out in the crowd. She's definitely a Flo fan and he even serenaded her.
It's no doubt that No Doubt (we crack ourselves up far too often) are legends in their own right. Since hitting it big in 1995 with the mainstream success of one of our favorite albums of all time, 'Tragic Kingdom,' the band safely secured their place in the ska punk/pop rock hall of fame.
Teens get a bad rap as being a pretty angsty, hormonal bunch -- but they're also smart, fun and kind of awesome, so it only makes sense that the 2012 Teen Choice Awards followed suit. With nominations for everyone from Justin Bieber to Nicki Minaj to Zooey Deschanel, some frontrunners are predictable: Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and hostess with the mostess Demi Lovato are favorites for all of their categories, though for some of them they're actually competing against one another!
The 2012 Teen Choice Awards brought out a pretty fashionable bunch. Hostess with the mostess Demi Lovato rocked a futuristic, super long blonde ponytail -- gone are her blue and green (once pink) tips! It was a huge night for Lovato, as she wasn't just co-hosting with 'Glee' star Kevin McHale, she was also up for a few awards of her own. You go, Demz!
