Slime, screams, and Smiths ruled the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday (March 31). Will Smith hosted the 25th annual show at USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles, honoring kids’ top choices in TV, movies, music, and sports. It was a family affair as the entire Smith family including a pink-haired Willow, Jaden, Jada Pinkett, and Trey cheered on Will, who kicked off the show by performing “Can U Handle This.”
A blonde Nicki Minaj turned heads in a colorful outfit made of tickets with stuffed teddy bears covering her heels. She presented the orange blimp for Favorite Music Group with Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson.
Ludacris walked the orange carpet with his daughter Karma, Diggy Simmons stayed fresh in a blue motorcycle jacket, and family man Travis Barker kicked it with his kids.
Katy Perry performed her hit “Part of Me,” while First Lady Michelle Obama presented Taylor Swift with The Big Help Award in recognition of her philanthropic endeavors. Cee Lo Green was hoping to get slimed, but instead got “ice cream sundae’d” by Will Smith, complete with a cherry on top.
The highlight came at the end when Justin Bieber was showered with green slime while accepting the award for Favorite Male Singer, drenching himself and Will Smith.
