"To my dearest fans & all of those watching..."
The Teen Choice Awards, always a bubble of teenage celebration, took time out during Sunday night's ceremony to consider the world its young audience will inherit.
Miley Cyrus has not made a further comment on why she was unable to make it to the Teen Choice Awards, which leads fans to believe that she never intended on showing in the first place. "My new single / music video #YoungerNow will be dropping this Friday, Aug 18th & I am sooooooo EXCITED to share it with all of you!"
After taking some time off to re-make her image and focus on new music, Cyrus returned to the music scene with a more innocent and care-free look, along with a single called "Malibu".
Cyrus is an 18-time victor at the TCAs, so tonight's honor is in tribute to her involvement in TEEN CHOICE for more than a decade.
Cyrus is receiving the ceremony's highest honor, the Ultimate Choice Award.
But within minutes of the show's start, presenter Victoria Justice said Miley wasn't going to make it after all.
While Miley Cyrus couldn't accept her award, her fellow "Voice" coach Adam Levine was able to accept his award with his band Maroon 5.
Cyrus continued, "I am sending so much love and peace into the world right now because THATS what we need most! Because you are the leaders, you're the future leaders of the world, you're the future presidents, the future senators, and you guys are the ones who are gonna make this world better". Liza Koshy also had a night worth celebrating, picked up the highly coveted Choice Female Web Star award. Both Bruno Mars and Gil Gadot sent video acceptances for their awards, while other superstars like Beyonce, Zac Efron, and Ariana Grande were simply announced as winners.
