As previously announced, the Jonas Brothers will receive the Decade Award at the Teen Choice Awards. Robert Downey Jr., Jessica Alba, singer Madison Beer, Good Trouble star Maia Mitchell, singer/songwriter Lauren Jauregui, Marvel’s Runaways actor Gregg Sulkin, The Flash star Grant Gustin, 10-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown, Noah Centineo, Fuller House actress Candace Cameron Bure, and John Stamos are all slated to appear at the awards.
The star-studded two-hour event will air live — for the first time in Teen Choice history — from Hermosa Beach, Calif., on Sunday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. ET live/PT tape-delayed.
