Multi-platinum recording artists Jonas Brothers are set to host TEEN CHOICE 2009 airing Monday, Aug. 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The Grammy-nominated artists will also perform during the 11th annual special that celebrates the year's hottest teen icons in film, television, music, sports and fashion.
The coolest stars, best films and hottest TV shows of 2008-2009 will receive coveted Teen Choice Award Surfboards in categories such as Choice Breakout TV Show, Choice Reality/Variety Show, Choice Breakout Artist, Choice Male Hottie, Choice Female Athlete and Choice Hookup. The first round of nominees, additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.
Jonas Brothers (Kevin, Joe and Nick) became a pop music phenomenon with the release of their platinum-selling albums "Jonas Brothers" and "A Little Bit Longer." In 2008, they headlined two tours that earned the band a spot among the top-selling tours of the year. They won an American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist, and were recently nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Artist category.
Jonas Brothers' appearance on TEEN CHOICE 2009 comes amid "The Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009," which takes the band across three continents, including three nights at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The U.S. leg of the tour kicks off June 20, following the release of their highly anticipated "Lines, Vines and Trying Times" album, set to be released worldwide on June 15.
TEEN CHOICE 2009 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.
