momlogic's Julie: Last night, I took my two kids to the Teen Choice Awards and lived to tell the tale!
Next time (if there is a next time), I will remember to bring earplugs, because the high-pitched screams from the audience were positively piercing! But what do you expect when Robert Pattinson AND Taylor Lautner were BOTH in attendance?! The Twihards just couldn't hold back!
The cool thing about the Teen Choice Awards is that anyone can buy tickets and attend. The "cheap seats" were $65 but gave a perfect view of the stage. My kids loved seeing Miranda Cosgrove and Selena Gomez in person.
One big disappointment of the night was that Justin Bieber (who was scheduled to perform) was not there. They just showed footage of him from his concert in Phoenix. Those infected with "Bieber Fever" (my daughter included) were bummed BIG TIME.
Before the taping began, LL Cool J rapped from right beyond his couch seat and wished his 10-year-old girl a happy birthday. Very cool.
Another "Aww!" moment occurred when David Beckham brought his boys on stage to accept his award. It was his third "Teen Choice" win, so now he has surfboards for each kid. His little boys were adorable as they threw autographed soccer balls into the crowd.
It was a very cool experience, and I hope it is one my kids will remember for a long time to come!
