The Teen Choice Awards 2014 was hosted by Teen Wolf star Tyler G. Posey and Sarah Hyland of Modern Family. The show was held on August 10, 2014 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The winners of the awards are determined by teen viewers aged 13 through 19, though there have been rumors that Fox actually selects the winners from the top 4 nominees. Winners get surfboard-shaped awards. Selena Gomez picked up what was perhaps the biggest award of the evening, the Ultimate Choice Award.
The Teen Choice Awards 2014 kicked off with a performance by Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd of Really Don’t Care, the Teen Choice Song of the Summer. Demi and Cher Lloyd killed with this song. There were tons of people onstage dancing as she sang. The audience cheered and applauded wildly as Demi and Cher Lloyd finished singing.
Sarah and Tyler talked about how they should start off the show, and Sarah suggested giving out the first award of the night, that of the Teen Choice Awards Song of the Summer Award. They called Demi Lovato back onto the stage and presented the award to her.
Then, they called Taylor Swift onto the stage to present the next award of the evening. She gave out the Teen Choice Award for Movie Actor in a Drama. The winner of the award was Ansel Elgort. He came onstage to accept his surfboard.
“I don’t surf or anything,” he said, “so I guess I’ll just put it on my wall.” The young females in the audience screamed, apparently very taken by him. He starred in The Fault In Our Stars.
Presenters of the awards, besides Swift, included Keegan Allen, Nat Wolff, The Band Perry, Jake T. Austin, Zendaya, Big Show, Brenton Thwaites, Tyler Blackburn, Bella Thorne, Jamie Blackley, Gregg Sulkin, Nina Dobrev, Hilary Duff, Hailee Steinfeld, Ansel Elgort, Ian Somerhalder, Fifth Harmony, Cody Simpson, Megan Fox, Odeya Rush, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez and others.

Rita Ora had been scheduled to perform her hit I Will Never Let You Down, but she canceled out.
Andy Samberg and Mindy Kaling then were in a video talking about other choices that teens had to make in their lives. Andy talked about what to do if a person experiences menstrual cramps and if he wears boxers or briefs. He said “Neither.”
Then, the next award, which was for the Teen Choice Television Drama Show, was won by Pretty Little Liars. The actors came onstage to present the Teen Choice Award for Best Reality Show. The award went to Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Three members of the show accepted a surfboard apiece.
