Darren Criss (Blaine) might not be nominated for any Teen Choice Awards this year, but he will be prominently featured — as one of the two hosts for the 2013 ceremony! Darren has been tapped to emcee the Sunday, August 11 show — which airs on Glee’s home station, Fox — alongside Pretty Little Liars leading lady Lucy Hale (Aria).

The awards show, which starts at 8 pm, will feature musical performances by One Direction and Paramore. Glee is nominated for Choice TV Show: Comedy, while actress Lea Michele (Rachel) has a Choice TV Actress: Comedy nod. Darren’s on-screen love interest, Chris Colfer (Kurt), is nominated for Choice TV Actor: Comedy.

Darren’s new Kristen Wiig movie, Girl Most Likely, is currently in theaters — and if you haven’t checked it out yet, we highly recommend that you do. The man is shirtless a lot. Like, a ton. And nobody wants to miss that. Up next, he’ll return to the Glee set to start filming Season 5 later this week.

Are you excited to see Darren hosting the Teen Choice Awards... or are you still a tad bit upset that he wasn’t nominated for anything? And which of the Glee stars, if any, do you think will walk away with a statue this year? There’s no doubt that they’re up against some pretty tough competition, but we think they have what it takes to win it in the end.
