Nick Cannon talks about his kids at the TeenNick Halo Awards.
Ne-Yo may have performed for a very deserving crowd at Saturday’s TeenNick Halo Awards, but the singer also had two huge fans in Big Time Rush.

“I’ve ben a fan of Ne-Yo before I even had a job in music,” BTR’s James Maslow told Celebuzz on the red carpet before the show.

Carlos Pena, who presented an award with the group at the event, held at the Hollywood Palladium, even provided some fun trivia on the carpet.

“He has a song called ‘Let Me Love You,’ and he wrote Mario’s ‘Let Me Love You.’ He did it twice . . . he’s pretty awesome,” Pena said.

The TeenNick Halo Awards, which recognizes teenagers who make a difference in their communities, also welcomed the likes of Mariah Carey, Lucy Hale, Victoria Justice and show creator, co-host and producer Nick Cannon.

“There are so many kids out there who are doing so much, even more than we are . . . they’re just giving their entire lives to go and help other people out and to me, that’s such a beautiful thing,” Pena said about the young difference makers.

The 2012 TeenNick Halo Awards will air Monday at 8PM ET on Nick at Nite.
