TEEN CHOICE 2013 IS BY, OF AND FOR THE TEENS
The Teen Choice Awards are different from other awards shows because the fans themselves vote for the winners. Not only that, they can vote more than once-every day if they so desire. Since only those between 13 and 19 years old can vote, the Teen Choice Awards actually represent the opinions of concerned teenagers across the nation.
This year’s show is going down live on August 11 at the Gibson Amphitheater in hot and bothered Los Angeles. It will be broadcast on Fox from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m., but that’s a delayed tape feed, and that doesn’t count. If you want to see the show in its entirety, you need to be sitting there in the middle of it all. That’s the only way to really get the full picture.
Recently, the first wave of nominees was announced. The list is chock full of the usual suspects and a generous mix of newcomers. Perennial powerhouse Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Pink will be fighting for top honors for Choice Female Artist. On the men’s side, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Phillip Phillips, Pitbull and Justin Bieber will vie for the Choice prize. What else is new?
To nobody’s surprise, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2” leads all other films with seven nominations including Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Choice Movie Actor: Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Choice Movie Actress: Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Given how popular the “Twilight” series has always been, it’s hard to imagine any other film beating it, but, as they say, that’s why they play the game.
The Teen Choice Awards honor the most popular films, TV shows, music, sports, comedy fashion and the Internet. The “Fashion” segment seeks to crown the Choice Female and Male Hotties. Megan Fox, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Mila Kunis and Demi Lovato are the nominees. It would be mighty hard, if not impossible, to choose between that bevy of beauties, but someone’s got to do it.
Treat yourself to an evening of surprises, musical performances and the hottest celebrities in the world. You can be part of the party, or you can watch the show at your friend’s house, and call it a party. That’s not a party. The real party is happening at the Gibson Amphitheater on August 11, and you know you want to be there. We can make it happen. Make your move.
