    The 2015 Teen Choice Awards will broadcast on August 16, filling the night air with the screams of teens excited to see whether the sexy vampire or the sexier vampire will take home a surfboard. But a mere 10 years ago, there were no supernatural creatures to be seen, just an epic battle between The O.C. and One Tree Hill. (The O.C. won, obviously.) The Pussycat Dolls danced across the stage, and when Raven-Symoné came up, she was accompanied by the That's So Raven theme (as she should be whenever she enters a room).

    But while some of the stars celebrated at the 2005 ceremony have faded in the time since, and others have grown up (Josh Hutcherson was an actual baby), some things about the awards show remain the same. Teens will cheer. Teens will dance. The Simpsons journeys on. Join us in revisiting all the moments you probably don't remember from that fateful night.

    Rachel McAdams Was In What?
    Whoever was in charge of the font for the opening credits, and for the show's overall aesthetic, decided to go with a perfect marriage of PacSun and Hot Topic. Maybe they had two teen daughters with totally different vibes who they wanted to bring together with one awards show broadcast.

    More curious was the producers' decision to align Rachel McAdams with the "upcoming film" Red Eye? Clearly the uninspired thriller was in need of promotion, but in 2004, McAdams starred in two of the biggest teen films of the decade. Calling her Regina George would have made much more sense.

    The Very, Very Odd Couple
    Hilary Duff shared hosting duties with Rob Schneider — 10 years later, we're still not sure why. Duff was pretty much at her peak in 2005, the year of Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and The Perfect Man, and just after A Cinderella Story and Raise Your Voice. Her hair was, as ever, on point.

    Rob Schneider was fresh off Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.

    The Pussycat Dolls Remind You Why Mid-2000s Fashion Must Stay Buried At All Costs
    It was three full years before you'd loose a childhood friend to an argument over whether the line in "When I Grow Up" finds the group singing about "groupies" or "boobies." Here the Dolls rocked up in quintessential 2005 outfits that clearly screamed, "I just participated in a spinoff of Supermarket Sweep at JCPenny."

    We Reached Peak Emo
    "How could we make this delightfully whiny song even more accessible to the tortured teen soul?" a producer must have asked. Two words: fog machine. "And let's play the music video behind them, because I heard something about youth loving the 'second screen.'"

    The Black Eyed Peas Were Still Phunky
    Did the Black Eyed Peas go by "bep" in 2005? Did we block that out? Also, either Fergie was really cold or the guys were really hot, because their outfits were not coordinated for the same climate zone.
