Joining a lineup that already includes MKTO and Jason Derulo , MAGIC! and Rixton have now been booked to perform on the Teen Choice Awards, airing Sunday, August 10 live on Fox.

Meanwhile, Rixton, who'll kick off a U.S. headline tour July 30 in Boston, are celebrating their first-ever #1 hit in their home country of Great Britain. "Me and My Broken Heart," which has been a hit for months in the U.S., has now debuted at the top of the British chart. 

Rixton frontman Jack Roche told Britain's Official Charts Company, "Being Number 1 is probably the biggest thing ever that has happened to us in our lives! And it means a lot because it's in our home country, and that's something that's been the main goal for us, to really make an impact. It's a dream."

The accomplishment is doubly meaningful for Jake, because both his parents are British pop singers, yet the highest his mother, Coleen Nolan , ever placed on the chart was #3, while the highest his dad, Shane Richie, ever got was #2.  Jake tells the Official Charts Company that his #1 hit award will be going on his mom's mantlepiece.

The members of Rixton tell the Official Charts Company that they all plan to get "broken heart" tattoos to commemorate their accomplishment.
