Sean Kingston, looking strong and a good deal thinner, brought some emotion and a heartfelt ovation to the Teen Choice Awards, where the "Twilight" gang dominated the honors (again) Sunday night. 

Part-time werewolf Taylor Lautner took home the waxed surfboard for choice movie actor in a sci-fi fantasy film for "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," and Robert Pattinson won for choice movie actor and vampire. And the movie's Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene won the choice scene stealers prize.

Singer Kingston, meanwhile, was at the show to present Justin Bieber with the surfboard for choice male artist. It wasn't that long ago that Kingston was tweeting, "GOD IS GREAT! Thanks for all the prayers and support! Love you ALL!" following a serious Memorial Day weekend watercraft accident in which he suffered a broken jaw and a fractured wrist.

His appearance provided a rare poignant moment amid the typically lighthearted awards show.

Some other highlights of the event, held at Universal City's Gibson Amphitheater and hosted by "The Big Bang Theory's" Kaley Cuoco, included multiple wins for  Taylor Swift -- ultimate choice award, female country artist, country single and, let's not forget, female fashion icon.

Tops in movies was "Fast Five" and, although "The Tourist" may not have made a huge splash with critics, stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie got nods for action actor and actress, respectively. And Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe were awarded for choice movie liplock for heating up the screen in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1."
