Demi Lovato, 19, has been in high demand of late. Not only did she score her first major top ten hit in 2011 with “Skyscraper” but the singer was hand-picked by Simon Cowell to serve as a judge for the second season of The X Factor.
Now it seems as though the former Disney darling will host the Teen Choice Awards which airs live July 22nd on Fox. The annual award show allows viewers from the ages 13-19 to vote for the winner in every category including “Choice Summer Movie” and “Choice Summer Song.”
Former Canadian Idol contestant Carly Rae Jepsen is set to perform her summer hit “Call Me Maybe” along with Justin Bieber, Flo Rida, and No Doubt.
Lovato is not the first teen superstar to host the show. Fellow Disney alum Hillary Duff hosted the show twice, while bff Miley Cyrus was a host in 2008 followed by Lovato’s former tour mates the Jonas Brothers in 2009.

Brittany Tenpenny has wanted to be a writer for as long as she could remember. Aside from brief fantasies of pop stardom and becoming the female Indiana Jones, Brittany was dead set on writing. She pursued her dream all through her academic career, becoming a staff writer for "The Argo" at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey where she graduated at the top of her class with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications. Last year, Brittany's fictional pieces were published in the e-book "A Calm Whisper."
Brittany is now a graduate student at Rowan University and is currently working on a novel.
