Modern Family's Sarah Hyland kicked things off — so to speak — with an always-popular trip as she reached the center of the stage. "I'm awkward like that," she told the audience. "Got to get it out of the way for everyone else."
Only at the Teen Choice Awards does a host — in this case, Grandfathered's Josh Peck — need to tell the audience, "Look up from your phones and let's party!"
Whip/Nae Nae 101
Speaking of Peck, his thorough explanation of "the whip" (with an emphasis on "wh" that would drive Family Guy's Brian insane) and "the nae nae" was greatly appreciated.
It was odd enough for Fox to ask a Pretty Little Liar to present sports-related awards, but couldn't the Powers That Be have at least told Lucy Hale the name of the nominated horse? You know, so she wouldn't have had to say "Congratulations, horse"?
Has there ever been a more serious Teen Choice presenter than Scott Eastwood, who assisted Rita Ora with the Choice Movie Actress, Drama, category? (Save the "gravitas" for the Oscars, bro.)
There was something oddly inspiring about Britney Spears' acceptance speech for Choice Style Icon — though maybe the true honor goes to Spears' stylist, who managed to keep her from spilling out of that top.
The Elena Gilbert Farewell Tour
No jokes here. Nina Dobrev's farewell speech to her beloved Vampire Diaries character was as unexpected as it was perfect. (Also, can we talk about how she finally stood next to real-life doppelgänger Victoria Justice?!)
Get. It. Becky.
If Gabourey Sidibe's promotion to series regular in Empire's second season means we'll see more of her dancing — she broke it down during Jussie Smollett's performance of "You're So Beautiful" — I am officially in.
Uncle Josh vs. Uncle Jesse
Who. Wore. It. Better.
Real-life couple Bella Thorne (Scream) and Gregg Sulkin (Faking It) closed the night with some cutesy banter about how winning isn't everything — even though it totally is. (Note: She won for The DUFF, and he won… nothing.)
