Held to recognize and celebrate teens who are agents of change in their communities, the stars of Hollywood gathered together to tape the 2011 TeenNick HALO Awards at the Hollywood Palladium on Wednesday night (October 26).
Conceived, hosted and executive produced by Nick Cannon, this year's ceremony featured the presentation of four unique stories deeply relevant and important to teens with special stage appearances by celebrities including Heidi Klum, Victoria Justice, Stephen Moyer and Serena Williams.
With musical performances offered up by Jason Derulo and Mary J Blige, the night saw Wilmer Walderrama, Kris Allen, Ariana Grande, Elizabeth Gillies and Ariel Winter among the other Tinseltown attendees partaking in the commendable showcase.
Honored during the pre-taped festivities were James O’Dwyer, Emily-Anne Rigal, Shanoah Washington and Kyle Weiss, who all were awarded a grant for their organization, scholarship funds and a trip to meet one of the four Celebrity Guests - with the big names lined up this year being David Beckham, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Jessica Biel.
Of the show - which airs Sunday, November 6th at 9PM ET on Nick at Night, Cannon told, “This generation of young people gives so much and now it’s time to give back to them. These are ordinary teens doing extraordinary things and I’m so proud to honor this year’s TeenNick HALO Award honorees for their heroic efforts and unyielding commitment to helping others.”
