MULTI-PLATINUM ROCK BAND FALL OUT BOY AND TEEN POP STAR AUSTIN MAHONE TO PERFORM LIVE AT FIFTH ANNUAL "TEENNICK HALO AWARDS," SUNDAY, NOV. 17, AT 8 P.M. (ET/PT)

Dax Shepard, Darren Criss and Chloe Bennet Confirmed to Present at Event Celebrating Teens and Their Commitment to Service

NEW YORK - Nov. 6, 2013 - Multi-platinum GRAMMY(R) nominated group Fall Out Boy will kick off the fifth annual TeenNick HALO Awards with a live outdoor performance atop the Hollywood Palladium marquee in Los Angeles, Calif., while teen pop star Austin Mahone will take the stage on Sunday, Nov. 17. Both artists will be joined by Dax Shepard (Parenthood), Darren Criss (Glee) and Chloe Bennet (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) who are confirmed to present at the star-studded event celebrating four teens who are "Helping and Leading Others" (HALO). Hosted, created and executive produced by Nick Cannon, the 90-minute special pairs each honoree with a mega-celebrity -- Josh Hutcherson, Queen Latifah, Chris Paul and Shay Mitchell -- who shares their commitment to service. The TeenNick HALO Awards will broadcast live for the first time ever at 8 p.m. (ET/tape delayed for West Coast) on Nick at Nite, and encore Monday, Nov. 18, at 9 p.m. (ET) on TeenNick.

Fall Out Boy - Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums) - is set to perform "Alone Together," their latest hit off their #1 album SAVE ROCK AND ROLL, and the double-platinum Top 10 smash "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)." Mahone, who also surprised HALO honoree Miranda Fuentes in Florida with her award, will captivate the audience with a medley that includes his smash hit "What About Love" and new single "Banga! Banga!"

Fall Out Boy and Mahone will perform before an audience comprised of kids who have all given back to their communities. Nickelodeon has partnered with Amigos de los Rios, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Key Club International in the Los Angeles area to reward their star volunteers with the opportunity to be part of the HALO effect. The teens can earn a ticket to attend the TeenNick HALO Awards by participating in three hours of community service.

This year, celebrities in attendance at the TeenNick HALO Awards can visit the "HALO Hive," an interactive social media lounge, and encourage viewers to tweet and Instagram pics. Fans can tweet with #HALOawards to share how they plan on helping and leading others in their own communities.

Each TeenNick HALO Award honoree was awarded a grant for their organization and given an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and connect with a celebrity who shares a similar passion for their cause. This year's honorees are:

Miranda Fuentes, 16, Pembroke Pines, Fla. (paired with Shay Mitchell) - Inspired by her younger brother Lucas who has autism, Miranda Fuentes has spent the past five years volunteering with Surfers for Autism. The Florida-based organization uses surfing as hydrotherapy, which helps the kids open up and express themselves in a calming environment. The organization also helps eliminate the social stigma around autism and gives the participants an opportunity to impress their families with their new capabilities. Fuentes' HALO match Shay Mitchell works with the Somaly Mam Foundation to eradicate sex slavery, liberate its victims, and empower survivors to create and sustain lives of dignity and as agents of next-generation change.

Zachary Kerr, 19, Methuen, Mass. (paired with Josh Hutcherson) - Growing up as one of three identical triplets, Zachary Kerr spent years battling gender identity issues before making a transitional journey from female to male. After facing tough challenges, he became a positive advocate for the transgender community, facilitating educational programs through Greater Boston PFLAG and paving the way for more acceptance and equal treatment for others like him at both state and national levels. Kerr's HALO match, Josh Hutcherson, was a founding member of Straight But Not Narrow (SBNN), an organization that prepares and trains young adults on how to become allies of their LGBTQ peers.

Rocio Ortega, 19, Los Angeles, Calif. (paired with Chris Paul) - A first-generation Mexican American, Rocio Ortega developed a passion for advocating education as a way to help young women become independent and successful. She works extensively with GlobalGirl Media, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering girls from under-served communities around the world through new media leadership training, and Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation. Ortega's HALO match is Chris Paul who founded the CP3 Foundation, a philanthropic partnership with The Winston-Salem Foundation that strives to impact the communities it services by using its resources and passion for philanthropy to enhance and promote education, health, sports and social responsibility for youth and families.

Denzel Thompson, 19, Philadelphia, Pa. (paired with Queen Latifah) - Denzel Thompson is a co-founder of Philadelphia Urban Creators (PUC), a youth led organization that grows organic food and revitalizes blighted landscapes into models of urban sustainability from the ground up, after battling obesity and self-esteem issues as a kid. In addition to organizing homegrown affordable farmers markets for the neighborhood, Thompson conducts educational workshops for youth in his community so they can begin to expand the Urban Creator mission throughout Philadelphia and eventually the world. Thompson's HALO match, Queen Latifah, supports Boys & Girls Clubs of America, whose mission is to enable young people most in need to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

In the weeks leading up to the live show, the TeenNick HALO Awards dedicated site will highlight the honorees, celebrity hosts, presenters and musical performers, as well as enlist teens across the country to show how they "HALO" through InstaVids and Vine videos. On the night of the event, TeenNick.com will offer viewers an immersive, enhanced viewing of the live show with real-time orange carpet coverage, instant-replay show highlights, exclusive behind-the-scenes pics and videos, and a post-show wrap-up. The 2013 TeenNick HALO Awards can be viewed on the site in its entirety beginning Nov. 19.

Presenting sponsors of the fifth annual TeenNick HALO Awards are COVERGIRL, Reese's Puffs(R) cereal, Green Giant and Target.
