Singer Enrique Iglesias also has been added to the bill for the fifth annual event, which takes place Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Hollywood Palladium and will be broadcast live on Nickelodeon beginning at 8 p.m. ET (tape-delayed on the West Coast). He joins previously announced performers Fall Out Boy and Austin Mahone.

"I'm excited about performing my new single 'Heart Attack' on the TeenNick HALO Awards," Iglesias said. "This award show is special to me because we get to honor real teens who have earned their way on the show by doing community service."

Additionally, Twilight star Nikki Reed has been confirmed as a presenter, joining a slate that already includes Darren Criss (Glee), Dax Shepard (Parenthood) and Chloe Bennet (Marvel's Agents of SHIELD).

The HALO Awards also will host a social media lounge, dubbed the HALO Hive, that will be led by YouTube personality iJustine. New York-based duo The Jane Doze has been tapped as the event's official DJs.

The TeenNick HALO Awards, executive produced by Cannon, Alex Coletti and Sal Maniaci, spotlight four teenagers from all over the country who are helping and leading others. They are paired up with celebrities who share a similar passion for their cause. Josh Hutcherson, Shay Mitchell, Chris Paul and Queen Latifah participated this year.
