The Teen Choice Awards: The only night of the year when millions of fans can tune in to see pink-haired ballerinas, on-stage fire pits and most importantly, an up-close-and-personal view of Harry Styles’ butt.
One Direction took the stage with their latest single “Best Song Ever” to open Sunday’s (Aug. 11) show, which honored entertainers in categories covering music, television, movies, sports and more as voted by actual teens.
The Pop Art-themed set filled with a flurry of red and yellow confetti as Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson slapped hands with the screaming fans who surrounded the stage. The group scored big, taking home awards for Choice Music Group, Choice Group Single for “Live While We’re Young,” Choice Love Song for “Little Things” and Choice Summer Tour.
Other big winners were musicals Pitch Perfect and Glee, for which star Lea Michele delivered an emotional tribute to the late Cory Monteith, who died of accidental overdose last month.
