Also On Sunday: 2017 Teen Choice Awards

teen-nodsNot to be confused with last weekend’s TCA Awards from the Television Critics Association, the much more popular Teen Choice Awards (Fox, 8 p.m.) holds its 19th annual event from the University of Southern California’s Galen Center to honor the most popular in music, film, TV, sports, fashion and even the internet. It’s hosted by Jake Paul, who is described as a YouTube star (in other words, never heard of him).

Performers include Rita Ora, Rae Sremmurd, Louis Tomlinson and Bebe Rexha, Kyle and Lil Yachty and  PrettyMuch. Selena Gomez is up for the most awards — 11 — followed by Justin Bieber’s nine.

Four who will get awards for sure are Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars, getting made up titles like the Ultimate Choice Award, Decade Award and Visionary Award.
