On Sunday August 11, 2019, the 2019 Teen Choice Awards were held at Hermosa Beach, California.
The Teen Choice Awards fetes musical acts, sports stars, and actors and actresses, and winners are chosen by American voters 13 and older. The target audience had opportunities to vote for their favorite acts in music, film, television, sports, fashion, Internet, and comedy using the Teen Choice site and social media platforms.
At this year’s festivities, Monsta X performed “Who Do U Love?” sans French Montana.
The group was a late addition to the performance list as they were notified on August 7 that they would be performing. However, while the group was without Kihyun due to injury, Monsta X did their best to perform for a crowd that did not have a lot of Monbebes in attendance due to the short performance notice. In addition to performing, Monsta X also had an opportunity to walk the red carpet and meet other celebrities.
