Trevor Wentworth of Our Last Night and Brian Anthony Joyce of Major League​ presented the award to Dawson, whose bandmates Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat served as the evening's hosts.

During his speech, the drummer said, “Thank you all of the fans, you guys voted this in. Truth be told, I figured half of you didn't even know I was in All Time Low so it means a lot that you voted for me for this.”
