Don't look now Selena Gomez, but Justin Bieber is getting kissy with a new girl.
While backstage at the Teen Choice Awards, the "Boyfriend" singer bumped into Crystal the capuchin monkey and her trainer, Thomas Gunderson, and couldn't help but make eyes at the famous ape, waving and smiling at her before offering up his cheek for a quick peck.
At Gunderson's behest, Crystal eventually went for it – who could blame her? – and lightly licked Bieber's cheek, to his delight.

It was a night all about choice! The 2012 Teen Choice awards saw surfboards given to fan-chosen actors, actresses and singers. And, of course, they had some choice words and moments of their own Sunday night at Los Angeles's Gibson Amphitheatre. In case you missed the tween-tastic action, here are the highlights:
1. Twilight Gives Back
For once, the Twilight smash franchise wasn't just winning awards – the stars were giving them away!
After Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner picked up their surf boards for their on-screen performances, the leading vampire was feeling rather generous.
"I don't know if I'm allowed to – can I give this to the audience?" Pattinson asked, before handing his summery prize to fans in the audience. Stewart then followed his example and also gave away her award.

Of course the b-day sweetie shared with the audience!

It's finally time for the Teen Choice Awards!
While you're working on your best and worst-dressed lists for the show, stir up this mocktail and share with friends.
Brooke Parkhurst and James Briscione, the husband-wife duo behind newlywed kitchen guide Just Married and Cooking, created a tween-friendly recipe with a kick and a full day's supply of Vitamin C.
Plus, the fresh ginger, mint and seltzer make this concoction taste like a good-for-you champagne cocktail ... without the calories. Says Parkhurst: "It's great to make ahead for any TV viewing party – the longer you let this mixture chill out in the fridge, the more the flavors will improve."

They're the teenage power couple of the moment, and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez seemed to prove that their moment's far from up at Sunday night's 2011 Teen Choice Awards.
Hushing tabloid rumors that they were breaking up, Bieber, 17, and Gomez, 19, showed a united front from the front row of the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.
Although both stars arrived solo, the two sat next to each other for the show after Gomez rocked the stage with her band – Selena Gomez & the Scene – to sing "Love You Like a Love Song."

Unable to suppress a smile that lasted throughout Sunday's 2011 Teen Choice Awards, Sean Kingston walked his first red carpet since his near-fatal jet ski accident in May.
After two separate brushes with death, the Jamaican-American rapper knows he's lucky to be alive, but more important to him are the lessons he's learned.
"Basically, I learned that in life anything can happen and you have to count your blessings and worship God, and believe in God," Kingston, 21, tells PEOPLE. "And know that anything can happen, so you have to be cautious about what you do."

Sandra Bullock didn't walk the blue carpet at the Teen Choice Awards, but that doesn't mean she wasn't there.
The actress, 46, surprised the crowd at L.A.'s Universal Amphitheater on Sunday, when she accepted the award for choice movie actress in a drama for her Oscar-winning role in The Blind Side.
Bullock – dressed in a gray top, black leather pants and high heels – came on stage and thanked cheering fans. "I don't know if you should bring attention to this. Some things are better left unsaid. It's been awhile since I was a teen," she said. "I'm so blessed and lucky. The Blind Side – I got to meet so many good people, so many good lessons I took away from it."
