Zendaya, Yara Shahidi And Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui Bring Politics To The 2017 Teen Choice Awards

Zendaya, Yara Shahidi And Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui Bring Politics To The 2017 Teen Choice Awards featureAfter a tumultuous weekend full of non-stop coverage of the heart-breaking hate tearing Charlottesville, Virginia, apart, many might’ve thought the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Fox would be relatively sanitized of the news. The award show best known for giving teens a chance to vote might’ve liked it if politics stayed off stage all together–which could explain why Miley Cyrus bailed. But those hopes were dashed by several stars who refused to let the night pass without some commentary on current events.

Regular social justice icon Zendaya took the stage after winning Choice Summer Movie Actress and spoke out during her acceptance speech. Rocking a dazzling sequined suit and her big curls, Zendaya eased her way into a conversation about politics, saying, “Right now, I want to talk to all the young people in the audience.” After getting the screaming crowd to settle down and listen, she

“With all the injustice and the hatred and everything that is happening not only in the world but in our country, right now I need for you young people–I need you guys to be educated,” she said. “I need you to listen. I need you to pay attention.” The crowd gave her a big cheer before she continued.

“And I need you to go ahead and understand that you have a voice and it is okay to use it when you see something bad happening,” she said. “Do not let people tell you what you think you should feel.” Zendaya called out all the future world leaders in the room and asked them to take their responsibilities “very, very seriously.”

The oblique references to the tragedy in Charlottesville may have been negotiated carefully with the Teen Choice Awards team. While Zendaya managed to give an inspiring speech without mentioning any of the weekend’s buzzwords, her friend Yara Shahidi wasn’t so coy on the blue carpet ahead of the show.

Miley Cyrus Uses New Music To Distract Fans From Her Absence At The Teen Choice Awards

Miley Cyrus Explains Her Mysterious Teen Choice Awards Absence, Promises To Make It Up To Fans With New Single featureMiley Cyrus couldn’t make it the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night. After a tweet from the award show’s official account made it sound like Miley was in the building, she ultimately bailed before her victory speech. That made things a little awkward when she was supposed to accept the Ultimate Choice Award, the show’s “highest honor” for a performer.

Victoria Justice had to announce that Miley had backed out of the show and Jake Paul had the unenviable task of being the viewer’s consolation prize. While the moment was an easy target for Twitter users, Miley took to Instagram to post about the cancellation. In what wasn’t quite an explanation or an apology, she laid out what kept her off the TCA stage.

Miley Cyrus Explains Her Mysterious Teen Choice Awards Absence, Promises To Make It Up To Fans With New Single tweet 1“I am beyond bummed I couldn’t make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor!” she wrote in a new post. “I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement!” Miley went on to drop the news that a new single is coming out off her new album this Friday.

“I’ve been tryin to keep the secret but I can’t hide it any longer!” Miley wrote before announcing that “Younger Now,” the title track off the up-coming release, will be out by the end of the week. “I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work!”

Miley also wrote that she’s sending “so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE!” Maybe the weekend’s bad news was too much for Miley to handle ahead of the Sunday night show.

Check out Miley’s Instagram post about the TCAs and “Younger Now” below. Plus, see some more reactions to Miley’s cancellation.

Ariana Grande And Emma Watson Clean Up At The 2017 Teen Choice Awards

Ariana Grande And Emma Watson Clean Up At The 2017 Teen Choice Awards featureSunday night’s 2017 Teen Choice Awards almost had a lot of awards to hand out. The show on Fox had tons of categories with big name nominees, and some of the winners walked away with a lot of hardware.

Ariana Grande muscled through a tight field to win Choice Female Artist. The “Dangerous Woman Tour” won Choice Summer Tour. Ariana was crown Choice Snapchatter and Choice Changemaker, as well. The mix of love for Ariana on- and off-stage makes her a clear winner with choosy teens. Emma Watson didn’t fare as well in social categories, but she won plenty of trophies for her on-screen work.

Her role as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast” was a TCA powerhouse, with a win for Choice Fantasy Movie and a win for Emma as Choice Fantasy Movie Actress. She split two wins with her beastly co-star Dan Stevens for Choice Movie Ship and Choice Lip Lock. Luckily, Emma didn’t make it into the Choice Summer Movie actress category, where Zendaya got the win for “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

But the night’s real showdown was anything but kissing and shipping. Camila Cabello and Fifth Harmony didn’t go toe-to-toe in any categories, but both were nominated for plenty of trophies. Who pulled out the biggest win–the “Havana” singer or her former girl group?
