RECAP: Nickelodeon 23rd Annual Kids Choice Awards

Mega-stars including Taylor Lautner, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Jim Carrey, Black Eyed Peas, Ryan Sheckler, Jay-Z, Selena Gomez and Misty May Treanor reigned as this year’s favorites, winning top honors at Nickelodeon’s 23rd Annual Kids’ Choice Awards live telecast, Saturday, March 27, (8-9:30 p.m. ET/tape delay PT). Hosted by funnyman Kevin James and broadcast from UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, kids’ top choices in television, movies, music and sports were revealed this evening via winners’ boxes that contained everything from a live animal, to a human hand, inflatable man and of course slime. The evening got off to a slime-filled start as Kevin James and Adam Sandler opened the show with their own rendition of “Get Slimed Tonight” while soaking the audience with the green goo. Later in the show, The Last Airbender’s Nicola Peltz’ magic “slimebending” got out of hand; Katy Perry, Steve Carell and Tina Fey were treated to surprise slimings; and American Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno set a world record by shooting 60 yards across a football field, via the Kids’ Choice Awards Slime Catapult, through the goal posts and into a vat of slime. In a special honor, The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama accepted the first-ever Nickelodeon Big Help Award for inspiring families to be healthy and active through her recently launched Let’s Move! initiative.
