Looking good, Sean!

After enduring a harrowing recovery from being critically injured in a jet ski crash on May 29, Sean Kingston was all smiles at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards in Universal City on Sunday.

Kingston, 21, stepped out on the Gibson Amphitheatre's red carpet for his first public appearance since the incident, clad in a bright red vest, white T-shirt, jeans, and gold jewelry.

The Jamaican-American singer recently opened up to MTV about his near-fatal accident, which occurred over Memorial Day weekend when the watercraft he was driving crashed under a small bridge, injuring him and his passenger.

"A lot of people don't know it was a deeper situation," the "Beautiful Girls" singer said. "I had open heart surgery and I had two other surgeries." 

Doctors had to operate on Kingston multiple times when they discovered that his aorta was torn and blood was filling his chest. But the star, who in addition suffered a broken jaw, fractured wrist, and water in his lungs, made a miraculous full recovery. "I'm 100 percent right now," he said. "What the accident basically taught me is, in life, you have to count your blessings."
