The Teen Choice Awards this year had everything — boy bands, girl bands, surfboards, Uncle Jesse and more — and that’s just what we got to see onscreen. We got to see some of our fave celebs rockin’ gorg red carpet styles, sporting some new makeup/hair trends and even peeped some Instagram posts of them pre-show. Behind the scenes, between the commercials and backstage after the show, celebs took to social media to share moments not visible on TV. From sequined close-ups and group mirror selfies to corporate swag and BFF goofiness galore, we’ve rounded up the best behind-the-scenes Instagram pics of the night.
