Here’s a math equation you’ll actually like: Amazing celebrities + fantastic, orange blimps + TONS OF SLIME = the best award show ever – the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards! The renowned and prestigious Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is one award show that we all get so excited for and we eagerly wait for it to make its way on over to celebrate kids’ favorites in pop culture. This award show is one event that people of all ages love and enjoy. For the kids, it’s an award show that is filled with so much fun (and slime) and an endless amount of terrific moments. For teens and young adults, it helps us relive all of our favorite childhood memories and honors the things we can’t get enough of in the entertainment world – from social media trends to blockbuster hit movies and beyond. And for adults… well, who doesn’t want to see their kids gleaming with joy while they watch the Kids’ Choice Awards?!
Once again, Nickelodeon surpassed everyone’s expectations with another stupendous and extraordinary Kids’ Choice Awards, which took place on March 24, 2018 at the Forum in Inglewood, California. This year’s award show was even bigger, better and SLIMIER than years prior. WWE icon John Cena did a magnificent job being the host with the most for the second year in a row at the KCAs. He brought his unrivaled energy to the award show and he even brought some of his Cena “family” members to join in on the fun. For example, below, we see Fuller House‘s Candace Cameron Bure feeding baby Cena. We also can’t forget Nana Cena’s appearance at the award show too – talk about a whole lot of laughs!
Of course, a Kids’ Choice Awards isn’t complete without a whole lot of celebs and this year’s award show had a countless amount of legendary celebrities who made their way onto the orange carpet to enjoy this exciting day. Celebrities including Mike Tyson and his family, Odell Beckham Jr., Lamar Odom, Channing Tatum, Heidi Klum, Travis Barker and his family, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Laurie Hernandez, Chloe Kim, Yara Shahidi, Kristen Bell, Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya, the cast of Stranger Things: Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin and Sadie Sink, amongst many, many others attended the event. On top of the star-studded list of celebs who came to the KCAs, many of them even got honored with a special, slime dousing. (C’mon, who wouldn’t want to be slimed?!)
Some of the many unforgettable slime attacks that took place at the KCAs included Heidi Klum and Mel B getting slimed while presenting an award on a swing-set hovering over a slime pool (sounds risky to begin with!), Liza Koshy (who won the award for Favorite Funny YouTube Creator at the event) was slimed not just once but twice at the event and our #bae Shawn Mendes even got buckets of slime poured on him as a surprise from Henry Danger‘s Jace Norman. The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards ended off with the host himself, Mr. John Cena getting a slime pouring after the crowd got a share of slime too.
The outstanding KCAs got everyone up on their feet with two, spectacular performances. Multi-threat JoJo Siwa took on the stage and brought extra happiness to the event with a fabulous medley of her hit songs “Kid in a Candy Store,” “Hold the Drama,” and “Boomerang.” The lovely and accomplished, young lady also won the award for “Favorite Musical YouTube Creator” at the event. The profound band, N.E.R.D. got everyone dancing along to their exceptional performance of their chart-topping track “Lemon” and had a bunch of talented, kid dancers up on stage to dance along with them. It definitely was one big ‘ol party at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
The KCAs gave the power to the kids and it was all up to YOU guys to help your favorite celebs win big at the award show. Fans were able to vote in a total of 19 categories including four new ones: “Favorite Funny YouTube Creator,” “Favorite Musical YouTube Creator,” “Favorite Dance Trend” and “Favorite Instagram Pet.” In fact, fans were even able to have their voices heard and join in on some live moments at the KCAs. Fans were able to vote and see Black-ish star Marsai Martin wear a pair of “Guac Socks” (yes – it’s as gross as it sounds – guacamole socks!) in an “Eat It or Wear It” challenge. Social media stars and YouTubers Alex Wassabi and LaurDIY took part in a “Fear Box” challenge that fans were able to vote on what they stick their hand into. This award show emphasized the importance of kids being kids and cherishing their childhood. It’s fun to be a kid!
