Who missed out on the surfboard giveaway?

Tonight we watched this year's hottest celebs get honored by the fans as Demi Lovato and Kevin McHale hosted the 2012 Teen Choice Awards along with the sounds of DJ Pauly D.

If you missed it, don't start freaking out, because we put together some highlights, along with the list of winners, right here for you.

Best Opening: The entire cast of Step Up Revolution flipping, breakdancing and crumping on stage to get us ready for tonight's show totally worked. They even made some audience members swoon—including Taylor Swift, who got a kiss on the hand.

Worst Flashback: And by worst, we mean for McHale, but it was great for us. Did you know the Glee star was in a boy band?! Yep, we even got to see some old NLT (Not Like Them) footage and then the actor gave us his own impromptu "audition" to Lovato. He totally has the X Factor

Best Entourage: Choice Comedian winner Ellen DeGeneres took the stage with the coolest (and cutest) "hype girls"—Sophia Grace and Rosie. Their excitement was adorable and got even better when they found out they won Choice Web Stars. Of course, Sophia Grace was ecstatic and Rosie didn't seem fazed at all.

Worst Hairstyle: We're not sure how Demi constructed that ponytail of hers (duct tape maybe?), but it looks like she got the idea from some Street Fighter character. When she finally took it down, we noticed a blue ombre thing happening. Not sure how we feel about that, either.

Best Return to the Stage: No Doubt performed their comeback hit single "Settle Down," and although it wasn't some crazy theatric performance, we liked it, because it was real. Gwen Stefani (does she age?!) actually sang and rocked the crowd. They've still got it.

Worst Disappointment: Unfortunately, Channing Tatum wasn't there to accept his award with Jonah Hill for their flick 21 Jump Street. And here we were secretly hoping that, since Magic Mike costar Adam Rodriguez helped present the award, they would bust into a dance on stage together. Wishful thinking.

Best Undercover Weapon: Did you guys catch Flo Rida's microphone? It had a huge embellished set of wings on there that could easily be some sort of shield or self-defense aid if things got crazy.

Worst Ending: As usual, Justin Bieber rocked his performance and offered amazing choreography to keep us focused. So what happened that made us deem this the worst ending? The fact that it ended! We could have continued watching him all night.

Best Appearance: The Twilight Saga isn't over just yet. As we anxiously wait for Breaking Dawn - Part 2 to release this fall, we got to see Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner accept the Ultimate Choice Award after an incredible movie montage that got us that much more excited for the next film. Oh, and did you know Twilight has won 41 Teen Choice Awards?

Worst Pants: Sorry, McHale, but those jellyfish-print pants are just not working for us. But we do like how it inspired you and Demi to start shaking your booties on each other. More of that, please.

Best Backup: This summer's biggest hit "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen was the final performance of the night, and she was accompanied by a video of fans and celebs singing along to the song. We kinda loved that.
