The Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards or the "Green Slime" Awards were announced on 31 March.
The ceremony was hosted by "Men in Black" and "Hitch" star Will Smith, who had the audience in stitches with his jokes and one-liners. Incidentally, the green slime, as is the custom at the Nickelodeon Awards every year, did not miss anyone... including the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez walked away as the principal winners of the night.
Gomez won "Favourite Female Singer" for her work with pop band The Scene, as well as "Favourite TV Actress" for "Wizards of Waverly Place". Adam Sandler won "Favorite Actor" while Taylor Swift was presented the "Big Help Awards" by Michelle Obama. Kristen Stewart earned the title of "Favourite Actress" while Taylor Lautner won "Best Butt Kicker" for his role as werewolf Jacob Black in the vampire romance flicks. Nickelodeon's "Victorious" was named the top TV show.
The night saw performances from stars like Katy Perry and boy band One Direction, who played a number from their new album "Up All Night". According to an online poll, the majority wanted a little green slime to be thrown at Justin Beiber... and host Will Smith obliged them. In fact, the duo created quite some havoc on stage, throwing slime at each other while the audience laughed loud.
An interesting aspect about these awards is that an orange carpet is rolled out instead of a red one... and the awards are made from children-friendly materials.
