Teen Choice Awards 2012

The stars were out, and the teen votes were in for last night’s Teen Choice Awards. So who walked out with a coveted surfboard? Whose performances rocked? Who left us wanting more?

Most winners were to be expected. Taylor Swift took home 5 awards for her country vocals and her voicing of Audrey in The Lorax.  The singer has now won 20 Teen Choice Awards- the most ever by a female artist. Bieber won 4, including fashion icon, while his girlfriend Selena Gomez accepted the award for Choice Music Group for Selena Gomez & the Scene. The British boy band One Direction won 3 awards, including Choice Love Song with “What Makes You Beautiful.” 

"Pretty Little Liars" and "Vampire Diaries" dominated the television category, both earning 5 awards. "Glee", thankfully, took home all 3 comedy television awards. 

The beautiful and talented Emma Stone won both Choice Actress in a Drama for The Help, and Choice Actress in a Comedy for Crazy Stupid Love.

The book-turned-movie phenomenon, Hunger Games, came in huge, winning 7 awards. Newcomer Josh Hutcherson was certainly excited about his win claiming, "I've always wanted to own my own surfboard, so now I have one. This is awesome!"

Certainly not new to the TCA’s were the stars of the Twilight Saga. “Twihards” were excited to see Twilight win the Ultimate Choice Award. Over the years the saga has won 41 surfboards. Say what you want about Twilight, but no one can deny that 41 wins is purely amazing!

Ellen DeGeneres was awarded Choice Comedian, although her acceptance speech was a bit overshadowed by her frequent guests on the show Sophia Grace and Rosie, who accompanied her onstage. They were beyond excited when they were presented with 2 mini surfboards for being voted Choice Web Star.

While none of the winners were too surprising, the performances left me surprisingly disappointed. First was the poor hosting ability of X-Factor judge Demi Lovato and Glee star Kevin McHale. Their hosting was little more than pathetic, resembling the rambling introductions typically seen in high school talent shows. The two, which are fairly funny in previous roles, seemed to have cracked under the pressure of being live. 

Another disappointing aspect was No Doubt’s highly anticipated performance of their new single “Settle Down.” The band seems to have made no effort to change with the times, as the song and performance were straight out of the 90s. 

Carly Rae Jepsen ended the night, after winning 2 awards earlier, with a performance of “Call Me Maybe.” Behind her as she sang, clips of some of the many lip syncs done to the song were shown, including some by the stars on the red carpet taped earlier that night. 

The show, although provided few upsets, also did not have any surprisingly exciting moments, making it a bit duller than in the past. Overall, the show was a bit of a disappointment.
