VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Alexisjoyvipaccess Recaps The Biggest And Most Slimetastic Event Of The Year – The 2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards! PLUS Find Out The Winners Here!

12 Mar

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. The casts of hit shows including Game Shakers stars Cree Cicchino, Madisyn Shipman, Benjamin Flores Jr, and Thomas Kuc, School of Rock stars Breanna Yde, Ricardo Hurtado, Aidan Miner, Lance Lim, and Jade Pettyjohn, Hunter Street stars Stony Blyden, MaeMae Renfrow, Daan Creyghton, Thomas Jansen, and Kyra Smith, and more were also in attendance. The cast of Netflix’s Fuller House also made their way to accept their blimp for “Favorite TV Show – Family Show.”

Every year, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards brings everyone an indescribable amount of joy and happiness. Nickelodeon events always capture what it’s like to be a kid and be a kid at heart in such an exciting and enjoyable way. Nickelodeon events, like the Kids’ Choice Awards, celebrate what kids love and show that the best thing is to enjoy your childhood and the things that even as an adult, make you think and feel the happiness of being a kid. The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards was yet another awe-inspiring masterpiece this year.

If you missed the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards or would just like to enjoy all of the fun all over again, there will be special replays of the KCAs on TeenNick on Monday, March 13, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and on Nicktoons on Thursday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT).  The show will also be available on Nickelodeon On Demand March 12.

If the renowned and prestigious 2016 Latin American Music Awards could be described in just one word, it would be: wow! From the spectacular musicians who were honored at the award show, to all of the viewers at home, the Latin American Music Awards was definitely an award show that left everyone absolutely awe-inspired. There were so many iconic celebrities and Spanish and English-language singers who attended the event, a host of unforgettable highlights, and some of the greatest performances we have ever seen. The 2016 Latin AMAs promised a marvelous and sensational night, and it truly gave that and more. The award show was nothing short of a musical masterpiece and it all happened at the one and only Latin American Music Awards.

The remarkable 2016 Latin American Music Awards took place on October 6, 2016 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. There are so many words to describe the fantastic Latin AMAs – “stupendous,” “extraordinary,” “exceptional,” and “incredible” are just a few, and without a doubt, the award show made music history as one of the most epic and greatest days in the entertainment world and in Hollywood!

The event started off with a terrific, purple carpet where all of our favorite celebrities walked and smiled from ear to ear as they showed their fantastic event attire. A very special pre-show, “La Alfombra de Latin AMAs” took place prior to the award show and gave everyone a look at all of the awesome fashions that were being rocked at the event. Then, the 2016 Latin AMAs kicked off with tons of excitement. Actress, TV host, and singer, Lucero hosted the phenomenal event and many of our favorite musicians were honored with their well-deserved awards. Enrique Iglesias was honored with a total of five awards tonight, Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizárraga won three awards, and CNCO took home two awards. Fans got their votes on as they voted all the way up until the live broadcast of the show to see CNCO win the award of “New Artist of the Year.”

In addition to all of the marvelous musicians receiving their awards at the event, so many outstanding performances took place at the 2016 Latin AMAs which added to the many reasons why this night was so special. Worldwide sensation, the immensely talented and charming band, DVICIO left everyone speechless with their brilliant performance of their hit song, “Enamorate.” “Mr. Worldwide,” Pitbull gave fans a memorable performance as he brought Flo Rida and Lunchmoney Lewis on stage to sing his great song, “Greenlight” along with him. In addition, the profound actress and singer, Idina Menzel took on the stage and performed for the first time on US Spanish-language TV and blew everyone away, as always, with her angelic singing voice. To top off the wonderful night, a very touching and heartwarming tribute was made for the iconic and stupendous Juan Gabriel. Lila Dows, Aida Cuevas and Shaila Durcal mesmerized everyone with a superb tribute performance and were accompanied by Mariachi De Mi Tierra Juan Gabriel and 48 additional mariachi musicians. The tribute was produced by Juan Gabriel collaborator Gustavo Farias and arranged by Eduardo Magallanes.

Other excellent celebrities attended the event including singing sensation, Johann Vera, social media star, author and actress, Lele Pons (who presented at the event), and nominees / musicians including Sofia Reyes (who had a brilliant performance at the event), Sebastian Yatra, the remarkable Prince Royce (who performed and was nominated), Nicky Jam (who had everyone jamming out to his hit song, “Hasta El Amanecer”), Jonathan Moly, Jesse y Joy, Gente De Zona, and the one and only Sheila E and her iconic father, Pete Escovedo, amongst many, many others.

As a whole, the 2016 Latin American Music Awards goes down in history as one of the most exceptional awards shows that has ever taken place! I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest, greatest honor of covering the 2016 Latin American Music Awards and rehearsals leading up to the event and I am left in awe with how excellent this award show is.
