“The X Factor” U.S. and “X Factor” stars One Direction, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and Emblem3 were among the winners at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, which took place Aug. 11 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Fox televised the event in the United States. (Many of the awards were not televised. Check the official Teen Choice Awards website for a complete list of winners.)
“The X Factor” U.S. took the prize for Choice TV: Reality Competition Show.
One Direction won in every category for which the group was nominated: Choice Music Group, Choice Summer Tour (for the “Take Me Home Tour”), Choice Single (for “Live While We’re Young”) and Choice Love Song (for “Little Things”). In addition, One Direction’s Harry Styles won the prizes for Choice Male Hottie and Choice Smile.
One Direction also opened the show with a performance of “Best Song Ever,” which has been a Top 10 hit in several countries. It was the first time that One Direction performed the song on TV. One Direction came in third place on “The X Factor” U.K. in 2010 and is the best-selling worldwide act to emerge from “The X Factor.”
Lovato (who is a judge on “The X Factor” U.S.) won the prizes for Choice Female Artist, Choice TV Personality: Female and Choice Single: Female Artist (for “Heart Attack”). Lovato also performed her single “Made in the USA” on the show.
Emblem3 won the award for Choice Breakout Group. Emblem3 came in fourth place on “The X Factor” U.S. in 2012. Emblem3 and actress Laura Marano also presented the awards for Choice Summer Music Star: Male and Choice R&B Artist, which went to Bruno Mars, who was not there but he gave a prerecorded acceptance speech.
“The X Factor” U.S. executive producer/judge Cowell won for Choice TV Personality: Male, but he did not attend the event, since he is reportedly on a month-long vacation in France, as he is in the midst of an adultery scandal. (Cowell reportedly had an affair with New York married socialite Lauren Silverman, who is said to be pregnant with Cowell’s first child. The baby is due in February 2014.)
Other “X Factor” stars at the awards show were Little Mix, Fifth Harmony and Cher Lloyd
Little Mix was the winner of “The X Factor” U.K. in 2011. Little Mix presented the Candie’s Fashion Trendsetter Award to Miley Cyrus.
Fifth Harmony came in third place on “The X Factor” U.S. in 2012. Fifth Harmony presented the Acuvue Inspire Award to Nick Jonas. Lovato introduced Fifth Harmony as the presenters of this award.
Lloyd came in fourth place on “The X Factor” U.K. in 2010. She was not a presenter, nominee or performer at the awards show, but she attended as a member of the audience.
The awards were voted on by the public at the official Teen Choice Awards website.
One Direction and Lovato are both past winners of Teen Choice Awards. Lovato and “Glee” co-star Kevin McHale co-hosted the Teen Choice Awards in 2012. “Glee” co-star Darren Criss and “Pretty Little Liars” co-star Lucy Hale hosted the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.

During the awards show, the camera cut to One Direction’s Styles several times. He was sitting next to singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, a close friend of One Direction who wrote the One Direction songs “Little Things” and “Moments.” At one point co-hosts Criss and Hale urged Styles to get up an do the “twerk” dance, and he reluctantly obliged by doing it for about five seconds. Sheeran was one of the winners at the show: He took the prize for Choice Music Breakout Artist.
One Direction’s Zayn Malik was sitting next to his girlfriend Perrie Edwards of Little Mix. The couple has been dating since April 2012. One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson brought girlfriend Eleanor Calder as his date. Calder (who is a student at the University of Manchester) and Tomlinson have been dating since late 2011.
In One Direction’s acceptance speech, Louis Tomlinson said, “This really is absolutely incredible! What a way for us to finish our time in America, boys. We really cannot thank our fans enough. You guys are really absolutely incredible. You never fail to surprise us, and you’ve done an amazing job yet again. So cheers from us!”
One Direction’s Liam Payne added, “Yeah, as Louis said, this is our last day in America. This is the perfect way to finish it. So thank you very much. We’ll be back for our movie premiere soon, so we’ll see you in a couple of weeks.”
(The 3-D documentary “One Direction: This Is Us” arrives in U.S. and Canadian cinemas on Aug. 30, 2013. Release dates in other countries may vary. One Direction is attending premieres of the movie in London on Aug. 20 and in New York City on Aug. 26.)
Lovato said for her acceptance speech for Choice Female Artist, as she held the Teen Choice Award surfboard trophy: “Thank you. I really want to take this surfing with Rebel Wilson, if she’ll take me up on it. I just want to thank you guys. Y’all are all so amazing. You inspire me to keep going every single day. I love all of you. I want to say thank you to my family, my friends. I also to dedicate this award to a new little angel in heaven named Lola. We love you. Thank you so much!”
During her acceptance speech for Choice TV Personality: Female, Lovato hyped “The X Factor” U.S.’s third season, which premieres in two parts on Sept. 11 and Sept. 12, 2013. She exclaimed, “Thank you guys so much! This is so cool! I’m so excited for everyone to see ‘The X Factor’ this year. Last year, there was some incredible talent that came out of it. Emblem3, who was just up here. Fifth Harmony, who I love. I just wanted to say thank you so much because this really is because of you guys. I love you all, and I can’t wait for you guys to see the new season!”
During Emblem3’s acceptance speech, Wesley Stromberg said, “Oh my God! This is crazy! First off, I just have to say thank you so much to the fans for voting for us to win best breakout group. My mind is blown. You guys are the best fans in the whole world. We are forever grateful.”
