For the third year in a row, the awards will honor four extraordinary teens and pair them with a mega-celebrity who shares their commitment to service. This year the teens (James O'Dwyer, Emily-Anne Rigal, Shanoah Washington, and Kyle Weiss) will be paired with Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, David Beckham, and Jessica Biel.
The 90-minute special will also feature musical performances, celebrity presenters and special surprises. For the first time ever, the TeenNick HALO Awards will be taped live at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA, on Wednesday, Oct. 26, and premiere Sunday, Nov. 6, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nick at Nite. The special will encore Monday, Nov. 7, at 9:00 p.m. (ET) on TeenNick.
"This generation of young people gives so much and now it's time to give back to them," said Nick Cannon. "These are ordinary teens doing extraordinary things and I'm so proud to honor this year's TeenNick HALO Award honorees for their heroic efforts and unyielding commitment to helping others."
