A star-studded list of celebrity guests, amazing musical performances, and of course, tons and tons of slime, yup, we’re talking about the one outstanding event that was truly the night’s trending topic and it continues to be the talk of the town for the rest of this month, it’s the epic 2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards! Every year, fans from all over mark down their calendars and wait for one of the biggest and most exciting events of the year, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, which celebrates kids’ love for all things in pop culture: from music, movies, TV shows, social media, and more. The remarkable and stupendous 2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards made its way to the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles, California yesterday, March 11, 2017 for one unforgettable and terrific night for attendees and all viewers.
The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is known for an endless amount of awesome surprises and there wasn’t a dull moment throughout the exhilarating award show. As soon as the award show started, fan-favorite actor, Jace Norman, who also happened to win the “Favorite Male TV Star” award at the KCAs, went straight from the Henry Danger set to the orange carpet for a fun live opening to the award show where he passed on the mic to host John Cena to get the show started with a whole lot of fun. With an award show as magnificent and full of energy as the Kids’ Choice Awards, there is one perfect person who can take on the role as host in such an effortlessly cool and sensational way, of course, it is none other than the legendary WWE superstar John Cena who got everyone watching the KCAs up on their feet and screaming with excitement.
What’s an award show without some excellent performances? Well, the KCAs got everyone jamming out with two extraordinary performances. First to the stage was the brilliant Camila Cabello and Machine Gun Kelly who sang their hit, chart-topping track, “Bad Things.” Of course, Camila Cabello and Machine Gun Kelly impressed everyone with one exceptional performance that left everyone in awe. A little while after, girl group sensation Little Mix took the stage with a fabulous medley of their terrific songs, “Shoutout To My Ex” and “Touch.” The lovely ladies of Little Mix totally slayed the stage and gave a marvelous performance and even won the blimp for “Favorite Global Music Star.”
There were so many wonderful highlights from one of the greatest award shows of the year. The incredible Demi Lovato made her way to the stage for a “Smurfs: The Lost Village” sneak peek and some smurftastic fun. Game Shakers stars Cree Cicchino and Madisyn Shipman went on stage and Madisyn got a smurf makeover. Transformers: The Last Night stars Isabela Moner and Benjamin Flores Jr. gave fans an inside look at the highly-anticipated movie and got everyone even more excited to see the outstanding film. The cast of the Power Rangers including Becky G, Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, and Ludi Lin made a special appearance at the event alongside their Power Rangers helmets and even got a slime attack. In addition, John Cena and Nick Cannon battled it out with a great dance off and Fifth Harmony took home the blimp for “Favorite Music Group.”
This year, fans were able to interact with the KCAs more than ever. Everyone was able to vote to see what happened during the live show of the KCAs including seeing Jack Griffo and Kira Kosarin take on the “chubby bunny” challenge, seeing Big Sean and Bethany Mota throw shirts out to the audience, and the Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn cast take on an adrenaline-filled arm wrestling challenge against John Cena that was judged by the one and only, DJ Khaled.
Of course, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards isn’t complete without a ton of slime moments! A total of five, phenomenal slime attacks happened at the KCAs. Demi Lovato was slimed during her Smurf-sational segment. Chris Pratt even got slimed at the KCAs control room and the Power Rangers cast got some slime action of their own. The one and only, profound actor Kevin Hart took home three blimps for “Favorite Villain,” “Most Wanted Pet,” and “BFFs,” and Nickelodeon couldn’t allow Kevin Hart to get off the stage without being covered from head to toe in green slime. The grand finale of the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards ended off with the iconic John Cena getting a slime dousing as another remarkable KCAs came to a close.
So many spectacular celebrities made their way on over to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards including Ellen DeGeneres, Demi Lovato, Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, DJ Khaled, Heidi Klum, Big Sean, Gwen Stefani, Chloe and Halle Bailey, Nikki Bella, Dove Cameron, Miranda Cosgrove, Aaron Carpenter, Mark Cuban, Noah Cyrus, Jacob Hopkins, Terrell Ransom Jr, Carson Lueders, Chloe Lukasiak, Cameron Boyce, Laura Marano, Bethany Mota, Isabela Moner, Johnny Orlando and Lauren Orlando, Neel Sethi, Jacob Sartorius, Alli Simpson and Tom Simpson, JoJo Siwa, Juanpa Zurita, Benjamin Lasnier, Zendaya, Nat Wolff, Maddie Ziegler, and many, many more.
