Steve Carell, Shia LaBeouf, Ryan Seacrest, Jordin Sparks, David Spade, Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Vanessa Hudgens Among Stars Scheduled to Appear
Hilary Duff and Nick Cannon Host the Ninth Annual Special
Three-time Grammy Award winner Fergie is set to perform "Big Girls Don't Cry" on TEEN CHOICE 2007 Sunday, Aug. 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Hilary Duff and Nick Cannon will co-host the ninth annual special, where the coolest stars will receive coveted Teen Choice Surfboard awards.
Fergie's solo debut album, "The Dutchess," which is now double-platinum, has produced four No. 1 hit singles: "London Bridge," "Fergalicious," "Glamorous" and "Big Girls Don't Cry." Her first single, "London Bridge," made history as it bulleted its way up the Billboard Hot 100 chart, reaching the No. 1 spot in three short weeks, the second-highest jump ever recorded by Billboard. This year, Fergie could snag a Surfboard for Choice Music: Female Artist and Choice Summer Artist. Fergie first joined The Black Eyed Peas in 2002 and was on hand when the release of their first disc together, "Elephunk," went triple-platinum, thrusting the group into the spotlight. The mega-single "Let's Get It Started" earned The Peas their first Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Two years later, the follow-up "Monkey Business" yielded five Top-40 hits, including "Don't Phunk With My Heart" and "My Humps," and has sold over 4 million copies. In 2006, The Black Eyed Peas won Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group for "Don't Phunk With My Heart" and in 2007 they took home their third Grammy for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group for "My Humps."
