Tonight, Miley Cyrus will host the 10th annual edition of TEEN CHOICE awards, which celebrates the hottest teen icons in film, television, music, sports and fashion. Winners will be chosen by teen fans aged 13-19 and will receive the coveted surfboard awards in categories such as “Choice MySpacer” and “Choice Most Fanatic Fan.”
It all began in 1999 when Britney Spears walked on stage and welcomed everyone to the very first awards chosen by and for teens – “your choice, your voice.”
Since that time, hundreds of surfboards have been awarded to teens favorites in movies, music, tv (including Reality Tv), sports, and fashion. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Aaron Carter, Serena & Venus Williams and Zac Efron (High School Musical) actually use theirs to surf!
The teen Choice Surfboard is often the first show business award for many stars. Jennifer Lopez received hers in 1999 and other first evers have followed her!
Gossip Girl and its cast have 14 nominations tonight between them and the Jonas Brothers have five nominations, so we will see if they end up on the first ever list of stars receiving that coveted board!
Another first for TEEN CHOICE isthat they willbe giving out a special gift from the Global Inheritance Trashed Recycling Store to people attending the show by bus or subway.
There are two Reality TV categories also nominated and they are; Choice TVReality Dance with “America’s Best Dance Crew” being nominated and Choice TV Reality Music Competition with “American Idol” receiving the nod from the teens.
The list of performers include Multi-platinum artist Mariah Carey singing her new single “I’ll Be Lovin’ You Long Time” and host Miley Cyrus will also perform her new single “7 Things.”Metro Station’s hit song will be the official theme song of Teen Choice 2008 so get ready to “Shake it”!!!!
