Teen Choice Presents: Teenapalooza aired on Fox on June 20, 2001. The show was hosted by the dynamic duo, Shawn and Marlon Wayans and included musical performances by O-Town, Mandy Moore, Shaggy, Dream, Sisqo and Lil Bow Wow.

What was the point of this special? I asked myself this very question throughout the show. The idea was to let people know which singers and actors were nominated for the Teen Choice Awards but the Teen Choice Awards don't air until August 20, 2001. An interesting concept, I guess, to get people psyched about an upcoming awards show - but they only gave us a sneak peak at a few categories and nominees. That's why I found the special silly and pointless. On the plus side of things, it was an opportunity to get teens together to watch a mini-concert.

The crowd was thrilled to see performances from many of their fave pop and hip-hop acts with a little comedy from the Wayans boys in between. The boys of O-Town showed off their crooning with their latest ballad All or Nothing - each member entering the stage at different parts of the song. Did anyone notice that Ashley got the loudest screams?

Puffy's (now P. Diddy) Dream girls showed off some slick music and moves with their latest tune This Is Me. The crowd went wild for Nelly's, Ride Wit Me and Shaggy took over the night performing three songs. He performed his huge hit, It Wasn't Me but the highlight of the show was when Shaggy snatched a girl from the audience to serenade during Angel. She couldn't believe she was up there and she had a grin from ear to ear!

Other performers included rapper Lil Bow Wow, Sisqo, Eden's Crush, Mandy Moore, City High and on a less poppier note, Uncle Kracker. They also showed the Top 10 funny moments from last years 2000 Teen Choice Awards. The 2001 Teen Choice Awards airs on Monday, August 20, 2001 at 8pm ET on Fox. Last year's show had some unique awards, funny moments and all your faves. The best thing is - it's voted on by you! Get your ballot to vote in the July and August issues of Seventeen magazine.

    That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
