Here's one awards show without the tearful, indulgent acceptance speeches: The first-ever TeenNick HALO Awards will feature four A-list celebrities to present the awards honoring charitable teens.

Alicia Keys, Hayden Panettiere, LeBron James and Justin Timberlake pair up with four real-life teenagers who give back to their communities in various ways: An AIDS education organization, an ocean research advocacy group, a community improvement project to turn teens away from drugs and gangs, and a support group for girls with scoliosis.

"One person can make a difference, and it's my hope that this special will encourage ongoing activism and inspire a new generation of leaders," says creator and host of the show, Nick Cannon.

What's more, each honoree gets to meet and work with their corresponding star, based on the celeb's own charitable interest. (Timberlake, for example, works with The Shriners Hospitals for Children, so he'll be teamed with Leah Stotz, who founded the scoliosis education and support group.)



The awards show will air on TeenNick Dec. 11 at 8 p.m., but you can catch a sneak peek here!
