Teen Choice Awards: Heartthrobs, vampires and a No Doubt comeback
Hollywood was awash in surfboards Monday as the Teen Choice Awards doled out wave-riding trophies Sunday evening to young things like Kristen Stewart, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and the cast of “The Vampire Diaries.”
At Universal City’s Gibson Amphitheatre, fans gathered to toast their favorites in film, television and music, and managed to land a significant act for the show: the first live performance from No Doubt in 10 years.
Promoting their new single, “Settle Down,” Gwen Stefani and her gang of boys rocked their trademark SoCal punk threads and looked as if they hadn’t aged a day during their decade-long break (useful at a teen show, no?)
While “The Hunger Games"edged out “The Twilight Saga” in several key categories, like favorite actress in a sci-fi fantasy going to Jennifer Lawrence, the gang from Forks, Wash., still nabbed a board for Ultimate Choice film.
“Its amazing to me that you guys are still around, just as strong and just as loyal,” Taylor Lautner told the crowd, with Stewart and Robert Pattinson at his side.
“I don’t know why we haven’t gotten better at these,” Pattinson joked of the cast acceptance speeches, before suggesting all three take their surfboards and pass them into the screaming audience.
New “X Factor"judge Demi Lovato played host for the evening, one that saw additional honors for Selena Gomez, Ellen DeGeneres, Zac Efron, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder.
