Matty McKibben lost Jenna Hamilton (and consciousness) on the “Awkward” Season 2 premiere last week, but the actor behind the perpetual armpit-sniffer is doing what he can to ensure this summer isn’t a total wash. Beau Mirchoff is now actively campaigning for a Teen Choice award with the help of a guitar, YouTube and a not-so-silent partner, and we’re solidly standing behind the guy, even if his musical theater falsetto is all types of nightmare-worthy.
“It cuts to the core of me, so I really hope you enjoy it,” Beau says of his own original composition below, and then, the magic begins. “I need validation from a surfboard–yes, I’m aware,” he belts with a suave, sort of Cindy Lou Who quality. “It’s not like I’m very egotistical–just don’t touch my hair.” Feel like we’ve heard that one before…a certain Sonata in G major? Where do we get our hands on that sheet music?
