With her unique talent and signature vocal abilities, Mariah Carey commanded the world's attention when she made her musical debut. Since then, Carey has emerged as one of the most popular and widely acclaimed talents in music. As a singer and songwriter, Carey has been recognized with the most prestigious accolades in the industry including two Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award and the World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium." As the best-selling female performer of all time, Mariah Carey has continuously raised the bar and set the standard of excellence within the music industry.
Throughout her career, Carey has smashed recording industry records, and she recently reached another historic career achievement. "Touch My Body," the lead single from her album, E=MC�, became her 18th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. As a result, she has surpassed one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard history: Elvis Presley's 17 No. 1 singles. "Touch My Body" spent two weeks at the top of the charts and marked Mariah's 78th and 79th cumulative career weeks at No. 1. This tied Elvis' long-standing all-time high of 79 weeks at No. 1 (as calculated in Billboard). Additionally, Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 50 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles' all-time high of 20 No. 1 hits.
TEEN CHOICE 2008 is executive-produced by Bob Bain ("Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards") and Michael Burg. Paul Flattery serves as producer, Kelly Brock is co-producer and Greg Sills serves as supervising producer.
