Singer and actress Zendaya encouraged young people to speak out against injustice, as she accepted the Choice Summer Movie Actress honor at the Teen Choice Awards.
The 20-year-old addressed the events at the deadly white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia during the annual event on Sunday night (13Aug17), telling the audience to fight for change.
"Right now I want to talk to all of the young people in the audience," she said before addressing "all of the injustice and the hatred that is happening not only in the world, but our country".
The Spider-Man: Homecoming star then told fans, "I need you to be educated, I need you to listen. I need you to pay attention. I need you to go ahead and understand that you have a voice, and it is OK to use it when you see something bad happen."
Fifth Harmony star Lauren Jauregui also referenced Saturday's events in Charlottesville, while accepting one of the four awards her girl group Fifth Harmony picked up.
"In light of recent events, for all those young ones at home, no matter who you are or where you are from, you are beautiful and important," Jauregui said. "Keep spreading love and positivity."
The night's big winners included the cast of teen series Riverdale, who took home seven awards, including Choice Drama TV Show, Beauty & the Beast, which picked up five honors, and TV show Teen Wolf, which took home four.
Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, and Camila Cabello were triple winners, as were Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Noticeably absent was Miley Cyrus, who was set to accept the Ultimate Choice Award, but had to skip the ceremony due to a scheduling conflict. The singer took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the award.
"I want to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for presenting me with #TheUltimateChoiceAward,” she wrote. “I am beyond bummed I couldn’t make it to the show as I had every intention of being there to accept and celebrate this honor."
Adam Levine's group Maroon 5 were on hand to take home the Decade Award. The band also performed at the ceremony, alongside French Montana, Rita Ora, and Louis Tomlinson, who was joined onstage by Bebe Rexha for their hit track Back to You. The performance marked the One Direction star’s first awards show performance as a solo artist.
Held at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, the awards were hosted by Chris Pratt. The ceremony was his first official public appearance since he announced he and his wife Anna Faris are separating earlier this month.
The Jurassic World star was also a big hit at the ceremony, picking up a Choice Movie Actor honor for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
