2013 Teen Choice Awards Recap

Aug 12, 2013

The 2013 Teen Choice Awards, hosted by Glee's Darren Criss and Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale, was an emotional, motivational and exciting night at the Gibson Amphitheatre in LA. Kidzworld has the recap and list of winners!

Honoring Cory Monteith

This year's Teen Choice Awards was not your average celebrity awards ceremony. After winning the Choice TV Show: Comedy award, the Glee cast honored the late Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson on Glee) with smiles and a few words. But immediately following their speech, Lea Michele was welcomed to the stage to accept the award for Choice TV Actress: Comedy. Clearly still distraught over her real life boyfriend's passing, she delivered a teary and emotional thanks to the fans for their support during the grieving process.

Miley Cyrus, Style Icon. Seriously?

Sadly, Miley Cyrus, who has recently gone off the deep end with her extreme weight loss, exposing outfits, punk hair style and bad attitude, was named the Choice Style Icon. While she may be representing those who are "different," her style is not setting the best example for teen fans, especially not her skimpy, classless outfit that she wore to the awards.

Ashton Kutcher's Words of Wisdom

Later, Ashton Kutcher was honored with the Ultimate Choice Award. He gave a motivational speech to his fans that will surely go down in the history books. He started by admitting that Hollywood has many secret tricks of the trade that help actors sustain their careers. For example, his first name is not in fact Ashton, but Chris. After relating to the crowd, he offered three important bits of advice to teens everywhere. The first: opportunity may look like hard work. The second: sexiness is not about looks, it's about intelligence, generosity and all good things that come from inside. And the third piece of advice: anyone can change the world. Check out the video his speech below:
