One of today's most vibrant and recognizable superstars, Flo Rida is a true international hip-hop icon. The Miami-based rapper burst onto the scene in 2007 with his record-breaking No. 1 hit, "Low (Feat. T-Pain)," which spent 10 consecutive weeks atop the Billboard "Hot 100." With sales exceeding 11 million, "Low" - from his acclaimed 2008 debut album, "Mail On Sunday" - is one of the most successful digital singles of the past decade, making its way into the Guinness Book of World Records as 2008's best-selling download in the United States. In 2009, Flo Rida broke his own record when "Right Round" made history with more than 636,000 digital sales in its first week of release - still the biggest debut digital sales week for any single ever. The single proved equally successful around the globe, reaching No. 1 in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. To date, Flo Rida has sold nearly 60 million singles. His new album, "Wild Ones," features the 3x-Platinum hit, "Good Feeling"; the 2x-Platinum single, "Wild Ones (feat. Sia)"; as well as the latest single, "Whistle," which already is heating up the charts. "Wild Ones" arrives in stores and online July 3.

Best known as a featured cast member on cable's "Jersey Shore," and the show's first cast member to get his own spinoff, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio quickly made a name for himself as a celebrity DJ. In 2011, he appeared at the iHeartRadio Music Festival and joined the iconic Britney Spears on select dates of her Femme Fatale Tour, alongside Spears and Nicki Minaj. Pauly D won the TEEN CHOICE 2011 Award for Choice TV: Male Reality/Variety Star. He is nominated for a third time in the same category this year.
