Maroon 5 will be honored with the Decade Award at the upcoming Teen Choice Awards, taking place at the Galen Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Aug. 13 at 8 p.m. FOX, which airs the Teen Choice Awards, made the announcement via press release on Wednesday.
The Decade Award, which was added to the Teen Choice Awards last year, recognizes a performer or band's accomplishments over the last decade (hence the name). Maroon 5 have continued to be one of the most successful bands across music in the last ten years, growing their existing fan base into an even bigger phenomenon that has included multiple concert tours and a seemingly permanent place on every summer playlist. Aside from their hit album releases, Maroon 5 have come to be dependable for releasing catchy singles between albums, most recently "Cold."
The band has also achieved greater notoriety throughout broader pop culture thanks to lead singer Adam Levine's exposure as a coach on NBC's "The Voice" and co-starring role in the film "Begin Again" as the ex-boyfriend of Keira Knightley's main character. They've also returned as the musical guests on "Saturday Night Live" and were the guests of honor in an episode of "Top Chef Masters" in 2011. This Teen Choice Award will recognize how this already popular band has taken their musical talent to another level, but have also become a fixture in pop culture around the world.
"[The Decade Award] celebrates the band’s evolution over the past ten years," FOX said in Wednesday's press release, which did not feature comment from Maroon 5. "With five multi-Platinum studio albums, the band has become one of the top touring acts in popular music, as they continue to achieve critical and worldwide success, while broadening their impact on popular music and culture."
The Teen Choice Awards will once again feature some of the most popular names for teenage audiences. Ed Sheeran, Zendaya and Rita Ora are some of the musical artists scheduled to appear, while "Stranger Things" actress Millie Bobby Brown, "Supergirl" star Melissa Benoist, "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot and the cast of The CW's teen drama "Riverdale" are among those who will be participating in the awards ceremony.
Less than a month after receiving their Teen Choice Award, Maroon 5 will be one of the headliners at this year's JAS Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience at Snowmass Town Park in Snowmass, CO on Sept. 3. Tickets are on sale now through AXS.
