The Choice Country Group award went to Lady Antebellum. The ‘We Own the Night’ hit-makers faced off against the Band Perry, Eli Young Band, Rascal Flatts and Thompson Square for the Choice Country Group Award.
Both Hunter and Lady A were not on hand to accept their awards at the Teen Choice Awards. The country trio were in the midst of the International leg of their 2012 Own the Night tour. Hayes was out on tour, on stage in Twin Lakes, Wisc. during the awards show.

This year's choice hottie awards went to Miley Cyrus and Ian Somerhalder. Cyrus wasn't there to accept the honour, but Somerhalder thanked fans on her behalf.

Teens logged on to and cast more than 134 million votes in support of their favourite celebrities from film, television, music, sports and fashion. The awards were hosted by Demi Lovato and Kevin McHale, the special also honoured Kristen Stewart with the Ultimate Choice Award as well as awards for Choice Summer Movie Star: Female (For her role in Snow White and the Huntsman) and Choice Movie Actress: Romance  (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1)
The Teen Choice Awards aren’t necessarily the red-carpet circuit’s most prestigious event, but no matter; the stars turned out in droves this weekend in the hopes of carrying off their very own surfboard-shaped trophies at the annual ceremony. Perhaps no one is more familiar with that particular sense of achievement than Kristen Stewart. The Balenciaga fragrance face and her Twi-hard compatriots have racked up 41 such statuettes since the vampire film franchise debuted in 2008.

Other multiple winners included "The Hunger Games," UK boy band One Direction. Placed third in the seventh series (2010) of Britain’s The X Factor, they later signed in North America to Columbia Records and have swept teenage girls off their feet with their success in America in 2012. 

The first award of the night, choice comedian, went to Ellen DeGeneres. After accepting her trophy, she honored pint-sized stars, Sophia Grace and Rosie, with the choice Web award. Ellen continues to love to scare the hell out of Miss Taylor Swift >>  YouTube

The “Mean” singer looked so nice in a ethereal white silk mousseline “Sidoni” mini dress by Maria Lucia Hohan, from the designer’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The soft, feather-light design featured a draped bust, a twisted chiffon detailed waistline and mousseline cocktail dress revealed low back illusion detailing. (see photo)

This was originally seen on the red carpet as a gown, in fact Jenna Dewan and Jennifer Hudson have both been seen in modified versions of it, but Taylor wore the mini version — which you can buy online and play the video to get a complete 360 deg view  - here. 

Taylor wore her long signature curls into a pretty chignon, clipped in a dazzling brooch, to show off her diamond-and-rose quartz earrings. (photo) She also wore a delicate gold bracelet from Lorraine Schwartz and carried a Edie Parker “Lara” nude pearlescent clutch with ice ends (photo) to complete the head-to-toe neutral look.

Demi Lovato – The Billboard Chart Topping Pop rock, R&B, dance American singer-songwriter and X Factor US Judge took the hot pink carpet at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards by storm as she arrived for co-hosting duties during the big night.

Her edgy feathered confection was styled with Loree Rodkin statement jewels and black Christian peep-toe sandals.
A high, sleek ponytail accented with black leather, smouldering kohl-rimmed eyes, black nails, and a natural pink lip colour competed her look.

Selena wore her long hair pin-straight before finishing off the look with glossy pink lips and smoky eyes.
Celebrity makeup artist Karan Mitchell worked with 20-year-old Selena Gomez to create her Teen Choice Awards look. Using her hot pink Dsquared² dress for inspiration, Karan gave Selena a fun, flirty look with lots of lashes and pink lip gloss.

Karan focused on Selena’s eyes by layering shadows and liner and applying false lashes. Avon’s Big Color Eye Pencil in Night Glisten gives dramatic definition to Selena’s sultry eye look. Avon’s 8-in-1 Eye Palette in Paradise Greens gave her a smoky eye and dimension through fun neutral colours. Several coats of Avon SuperExtend Extreme Mascara in Black polished off Selena’s extended lashes.
To enhance Selena’s pretty complexion Karan used Avon’s Ideal Flawless Matte Mousse Foundation in Natural Beige and Avon’s Ideal Flawless Concealer Stick in Neutral.
To give Selena’s skin a super dewy glow Karan applyed the mousse foundation with a damp makeup sponge and only added concealer under her eyes. For her sunny glow, Karan contoured Selena’s cheeks with Avon’s Hawaiian Shores Bronzing Petals underneath her cheekbones and finished by applying Avon Be Blushed in Golden Rose to her cheekbones for a rosy glow.

Carly Rae Jepsen - New pop star wore a beige blazer paired with a matching miniskirt and dark green printed palm trees -  "It just felt kind of suited for Teen Choice. The surf boards. Why not?" said Jepsen.
