Singers Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are known to be dating, but will they win nearly ten awards at the upcoming Teen Choice Awards 2012 show? The nominees were recently announced with Bieber and Gomez receiving eight award nominations between the two of them.
An article from MTV reports that Justin Bieber and the TV shows American Idol and The Vampire Diaries, lead the way in terms of total nominations. TVD has six nominations, the most of any show or performer, while Bieber and AI each have five nominations. Meanwhile, JB's girlfriend, Selena Gomez, is up for three awards including Choice Female Hottie. She'll have her work cut out for her against Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Kate Upton, star of the famous YouTube "Cat Daddy" video.
As for Justin Bieber, he is up for several categories including Choice Male Artist, Choice Single by a Male (for "Boyfriend"), Choice Fashion Icon: Male, and Choice Male Hottie. So quite possibly Bieber and his lady could take home the hottie awards making them the King and Queen of Teen Choice hotness. All of the nominees are available at the Teen Choice website via a PDF file they've uploaded.
If Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez sweep all the categories they're nominated in, it would mean winning a total of eight awards between the two of them. That would make for a great occasion for the couple, although they'll probably be happy with whatever awards they add to their growing trophy collection!
The Teen Choice Awards 2012 arrives on July 22nd and will be shown live on FOX for TV coverage.
