When we found out that one of our favorite musicals ever will be coming live to NBC, we all couldn’t contain our excitement, and we totally bought ourselves a can of hairspray to get our hair ready. To add on even more excitement, we found out that NBC’s Hairspray Live! will have an all-star cast including Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Kristin Chenoweth, Derek Hough, Martin Short, Harvey Fierstein and newcomer Maddie Baillio, who will play Tracy Turnblad.

Now, we have even more awe-inspiring and spectacular excitement as it has just recently been announced that the stupendous Dove Cameron and the sensational Garrett Clayton will be joining the cast as Amber Von Tussle and Link Larkin, respectively.

It’s clear to see that Dove Cameron and Garrett Clayton are an absolute perfect fit for Hairspray Live! and we wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to play their roles. They both are so magnificently talented in both acting and singing and we can’t wait to see them create a masterpiece in Hairspray Live! announced the marvelous news and described the live production as follows, “Hairspray Live! takes place in 1962 Baltimore, where teenager Tracy Turnblad (Baillio) dream of dancing on The Corny Collins Show, a local TV program. When, against all odds, Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight and meets a colorful array of characters.” Hairspray Live! is set to air on December 7th.

The orange carpet was rolled out, the coveted blimps were handed out and one of the most legendary nights in award show history took place on March 28, 2015: the one, the only Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards! Nickelodeon is known for making masterpieces – from its brilliant and creative TV shows to of course, its slime filled award ceremonies; and another thing Nickelodeon is known for is putting smiles on everyone’s faces. No matter what age you may be – Nickelodeon appeals to all ages and can brighten up a person’s day no matter what. History was made on March 28, 2015 as the multi-talented and consummate musician / actor, Nick Jonas took on the stage to host the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards at the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California. Nick Jonas mesmerized everyone with his awe-inspiring opening performance of his hit tracks “Chains” and “Jealous” and also added some slime fun as he drank a cup of slime! The outstanding Iggy Azalea “wowed” the crowd with her indescribable performance of her latest track “Trouble” with Jennifer Hudson and sensation, 5 Seconds of Summer closed out the one of a kind award show with an incredible performance of their song “What I Like About You” and it looks like what they like is loads and loads of slime!

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is all about the kids’ choice so this year, Nickelodeon opened up even more opportunities for fans to have their voices heard by giving everyone all across the world the opportunity to vote for their favorites to win a coveted Nickelodeon blimp across 21 categories on and even by tweeting.

According to the press release, “This year’s Kids’ Choice Awards proved to be as messy as ever, from Jennifer Lopez presenting Jonas with his award and a surprise sliming; to the Favorite Family TV Show stars of Modern Family getting doused in goo; Jonas chugging a mug of slime in a “Dare or Dare” slime challenge; and a backstage pie fight between Chris Pratt and the cast of Henry Danger.

 The stars of The Thundermans cleaned up the special live vote during the show, which garnered over 7 million votes.  They beat out the casts of Bella and the Bulldogs and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and received the deluxe treatment from the first-ever human slime car wash complete with conveyer, spinning brushes, swinging flaps, spraying nozzles and, of course, tons of slime.”
Nickelodeon always manages to make the Kids Choice Awards more and more phenomenal as the years go by and the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards was like no other and left everyone speechless.

Nick Jonas, Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson and 5 Seconds of Summer will all be taking over the stage and giving performances that fans and celebrities alike will never forget! Nickelodeon even added four new categories this year to the award shows and opened up more opportunities for fans to vote such as letting fans have their voices be heard by tweeting who they want to see win a coveted blimp by using #KCA. Let’s just say, Nickelodeon never fails in making the Kids’ Choice Awards a great experience for everyone!

Speaking of the Kids’ Choice Awards experience! After watching the award show on TV, have you ever wondered what it would be like to actually be at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards? Well, Nickelodeon is at it again engaging fans in an outstanding way by giving them the ultimate Kids’ Choice Awards Experience. Nickelodeon held its first stop of the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Experience on March 7, 2015 in New Jersey as it leads up to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards itself. At the event, attendees were able to get the once in a lifetime chance of meeting Nickelodeon stars and Kids’ Choice Awards nominees, the dazzling The Thundermans star, Kira Kosarin and the charming, The Haunted Hathaways star Benjamin Flores Jr. live in person! Nickelodeon offered an endless amount of activities from having an airbrush tattoo station which I myself even happened to get a #KCA airbrush tattoo, a voting booth – so of course, everyone can cast their votes for their favorites and let’s not forget the incredible NickRadio was at the event too bringing everyone some spectacular tunes as they enjoyed their very own Kids’ Choice Awards experience. The awesome Maxwell of NickRadio had attendees dancing and singing along to great songs like “Trouble” by Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson and “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor, to name a few.

One of the many highlights of the event was the slime! Nickelodeon gave the opportunity for people to get slimed and I know it has always been a dream of mine ever since I was younger while watching the Kids’ Choice Awards to get slimed. I’ve always wondered, “What does slime feel like?”, “What does it smell like?” and thanks to Nickelodeon, my burning slime questions have been answered!! As a whole, the event was beyond brilliant and was a perfect day for families and friends! Whether it be with their highly-acclaimed TV shows or their renowned award shows or their fantastic events like this one – Nickelodeon brings families even closer together. Nickelodeon can make everyone of all ages have the biggest smile on their face and when you watch Nickelodeon, you have a second family, the orange family! Nickelodeon is truly remarkable!
