Teen Choice Awards 2012 Recap

No Doubt performed their first single in over a decade, Settle Down. Gwen Stefani looked as lovely and youthful as she did when No Doubt released Return of Saturn – but seriously, this woman has not aged. No Doubt will release their sixth studio album on September 25, but have not announced whether a tour will follow. For those craving a live show, they will be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival four days before the album release.

Demi Lovato sure likes to keep things busy. Not only is she on her summer tour, she is also traveling the country for her position as an X Factor judge. She somehow took some time out of her busy schedule to be the host of the Teen Choice Awards, and even won choice summer music star. Is a host technically allowed to be nominated and win in the same show they’re hosting? Seems a bit unfair, but if anyone deserves it, Demi does. If you want to catch the “Skyscraper” singer, you can get Demi Lovato tickets here. (Image via US Mag)

 


Justin Bieber performed Boyfriend and won 5 awards, giving him a total of 12 Teen Choice awards. You can get Justin Bieber tickets for his tour, which has dates in the US into the end of January. After watching that performance, did anyone else get flashbacks of Nsync in their heyday from his outfit alone?
