Justin Bieber, Nick Cannon to honor teen volunteers at Halo Awards

Justin Bieber, Emma Stone, Tyra Banks and Josh Duhamel are honoring teenagers who give back to their communities.

Nickelodeon announced Tuesday that each star will pay tribute to a teen volunteer at the fourth annual TeenNick HALO Awards. It is presented to young people who are “helping and leading others.”

Nick Cannon, who created the awards show, will serve as its host and executive producer. It is set to tape Nov. 17 at the Hollywood Palladium and air as a 90-minute special on Nov. 19.

The four honorees come from across the country and range in age from 16 to 19. One started an organization to help outfit low-income teenage girls. Another makes and distributes gift bags for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Behind the scenes at 'Hip-Hop Squares' with Nick Cannon and Biz Markie

Tonight, MTV2 will pull back the curtain on Hip-Hop Squares, the new rap-centric reboot of the classic game show Hollywood Squares. For those who never had the pleasure of watching the likes of Shadoe Stevens or Jim J. Bullock riff in syndication, the show goes a little something like this: The host (in this case New York radio DJ Peter Rosenberg) asks a question of one of nine celebrities, who are positioned on a massive upright Tic-tac-toe board, and each contestant chooses whether or not to agree with the celeb’s response. If they’re correct, they “win” the square. After that, it’s basically Tic-tac-toe.

Of course, Hip-Hop Squares will offer more than just wacky trivia. The show also encourages extracurricular activities, starting with the champagne toast prior to each taping and the cameras capturing jokes and pranks in the green room.

A few weeks ago, EW stopped by Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, where Hip-Hop Squares was taping (right next door to HBO’s Girls). READ FULL STORY
