justin-timberlake-britney-teen-choice-awards-2016

Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Fifth Harmony, basically everyone with a large Twitter following is nominated at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards.

First, I’d like to point out Britney is nominated three times (!!!), but not in any of the music categories #Rude #JusticeForPrettyGirls. She did land in three digital categories, which includes Choice Twitter, Choice Instagram and Social Media Queen.

Second, Justin Timberlake, who is also nominated in three categories, including Choice Party Song, Choice Summer Song and Choice Song From a Movie or TV show for “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” will receive the Decade Award which honors his massive contribution to music in the last 10 years. It’s the equivalent to the Lifetime Achievement Award, but for kids. A press release said: “From his musical artistry to innovative collaborations, the singer continues to create relevant, chart-topping music, transcending generations of fans.”

Up for Choice Song: Male Artist includes Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, Charlie Puth, Troye Sivan and Flo Rida and Zayn Malik.

Adele, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Meghan Trainor, Selena Gomez and her bestie Taylor Swift will duke it out for Choice Song: Female Artist.
