Posted Sunday July 22, 2012 9:21 PM GMT

Stepping out for an exciting evening, Jackson Rathbone drew cheers from fans and press alike as he arrived at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards earlier tonight (July 22).

The “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” stud was gracious enough to throw down a few poses for the paparazzi before casually meandering into the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City.

Jackson and the rest of his Cullen clan have a big night ahead, as their latest film is slated to compete for a total of 12 surfboards overall.

Hosted by Demi Lovato with help from Kevin McHale, the 2012 Teen Choice Awards air live on FOX from 8-10PM ET while featuring performances by Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Flo Rida and No Doubt.
