Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who speaks his mind once too many times even when he speaks once, are a bit skeptical towards certain awards shows. The Teen Choice Awards fall in this category. More often than not, the awards outcome is very much easy to predict: the award goes to the artist that attends the show. That wouldn’t be so much of an issue until you realize that most of the other artists vying for the same prize are not even attending. There are of course exceptions, artists that win regardless of whether they attend or not. The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar is one of these.

The Sparkly Dressed is up for four Teen Choice Awards 2012: Choice Female Artist, Choice Single by a Female Artist for Eyes Open, Choice Female Country Artist and Choice Country Song for Sparks Fly. She’s got strong competition, but let’s not sugar coat it: this goes down to fanbase voting.

If on some shows the debate between whether it’s about talent or popularity is very strong, on this show it’s very clear it’s the latter. That’s not to say that it’s a bad thing, after all ‘Choice’ is in the name.¬†The Teen Choice Awards 2012¬†air¬†live Sunday, July 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.¬†You can vote here.
