Special - Summer Music Mania 2002
On June 20, Teen Choice Presents: Summer Music Mania 2002 aired on Fox. The pre-taped show was hosted by Jennifer Love Hewitt, JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick of *NSYNC. Summer Music Mania 2002 is the pre-show to the 2002 Teen Choice Awards, airing in August, and is the perfect way to kick off the summer. The show gave a sneak peek at the nominees from the upcoming Teen Choice Awards and the chance to see some of today's hottest acts live.
Nelly and the St. Lunatics performed his new song Hot in Herre (that's not a typo, it's Nelly version of spelling) and at the end of the performance Nelly must have been hot cuz he tossed his jersey into the crowd and showed off his bod. Ashanti performed solo and teamed up with Ja Rule for a tune later in the show. No Doubt rocked the crowd big-time with a hella good performance that had the audience bouncing to their latest single. Newcomer Vanessa Carlton sat down at the piano to perform her big hit A Thousand Miles and Craig David was accompanied only by his guitar player.
B2K had the crowd screaming with their robotic dance moves and their hit song Uh Huh. Other performers included Britney performing Boys, Tweet, Ludacris, Ja Rule, Michelle Branch and Alanis Morissette.
