Teen Choice Awards 2001The Teen Choice Awards were given out Sunday August 12, 2001 in front of a packed crowd at Universal Ampitheatre in Los Angeles, California. These awards are one of the best, especially for fans, because they're the ones who get to decide who wins. Kidzworld was there to get the scoop for ya.
It was a star-packed affair - everybody who's anybody was there. The stars were good sports too as they stopped and chatted with press on the red carpet and braved the press tents despite the blistering heat. The show opened with a performance by Usher, who has a new album out soon - and was the followed by a hilarious spoof of Lady Marmalade. They called it The Moulin Huge and though the girls were dressed like Mya, Lil Kim, Christina Aguilera and Pink - they definitely wore different sizes of lingerie.
Next it was down to business with a ton of awards to give out in cool categories like Choice Male Hottie and Choice Hissy Fit.

Sure these awards don't get as crazy as the MTV Awards but there were some choice moments - like Justin Timberlake and Chris Kattan fighting over the Choice Male Hottie award. Ben Affleck's appearance was probably the biggest surprise of the night. He took a night off rehab to claim the awards for his flick Pearl Harbor. Then there's all the lip-locking from the celebs. Britney and Justin smooching, Jessica and her fiance Michael Weatherly locked lips on camera and so did the poster children for young love, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. In fact Freddie couldn't bare to be away from his girl one minute - he even followed her into the press tent and joked about decking a guy who asked her for a kiss. Despite their obvious affection, Sarah answered a reporter with, "What big date? Today? Today is a big date." When asked whether she and Freddie had picked the big wedding date.
