The Teen Choice Awards took place Sunday night, and while surfboards and hashtags were ever present, the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend dominated the conversation.

TEEN CHOICE AWARDS RECAP

The two-hour show went on as planned, but many of the speeches were about the youth getting involved in politics and today’s culture, and not to sit idly by. “With all the injustice and the hatred and everything that’s happened not only in the world but in our country right now, I need for you young people, I need you guys to be educated. I need you to listen. I need you to pay attention,” said Spiderman: Homecoming‘s Zendaya in her acceptance speech for Best Summer Movie Actress. “You are the future presidents, the future senators. You guys are the ones who are going to make this world better.”

The show was still full of musical performances and light-hearted fun. Miley Cyrus, an 18-time Teen Choice Award winner, regretfully did not show up to accept the night’s highest honor – the Ultimate Choice Award. She took to Instagram to apologize for her absence, saying she “created an unrealistic schedule for myself.”

To my dearest fans & all of those watching @teenchoicefox ! I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward ! I am beyond bummed I couldn’t make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor! I created an unrealistic schedule for myself which leads me to this announcement! I’ve been tryin to keep the secret but I can’t hide it any longer! My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday , Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you! I hope to always make people smile and shine light thru my work! I look forward to making music for the rest of my life and I’m thankful everyday for those who listen! I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Love Love & more LOVE! ❤️????❤️????

Other winners included Chris PrattBruno MarsGal Gadot, Beyoncé, and Maroon 5. Fifth Harmony won best music group and best song, and their Lauren Jauregui took the stage to speak. “In light of recent events, we just wanted to say to all of the young ones at home watching, no matter who you are, where you come from or what you look like, you are beautiful and you are important,” she said. “So keep spreading love and positivity.”

The host for the evening was YouTuber Jake Paul. The Internet star was recently fired from Disney Channel series Bizaardvark after a public feud with his West Hollywood neighbors. He won two awards for best YouTuber and best web musician. “The past few months have humbled me quite a bit. I had to be more mindful of my words and actions and how they impact others,” he said in his acceptance speech. “The next step for me is to forget all the bad press, drama, negativity.”
