Usher took home a pair of honors from the 2002 Teen Choice Awards, held Sunday in Universal City, Calif.

Usher earned the best rap artist title and best love song honor for his single "U Got It Bad," while Spears and Rule were selected as favorite female and male singers, respectively.

Elsewhere at the ceremony -- which honored the most popular actors, musicians, and athletes as chosen by readers of Seventeen magazine and its Web site -- pop singer-turned-actress Mandy Moore picked up half of the coolest chemistry award for her on-screen romance with Shane West in "A Walk to Remember," and MTV's "The Osbournes" nabbed the best TV reality show award.

Other awards included favorite male and female athlete (Michelle Kwan, Kobe Bryant), favorite action film ("Spider-Man"), movie of the summer ("Mr. Deeds"), and "choice movie your parents didn't want you to see" ("American Pie 2").
