Chance could not be more excited for the ceremony!

“I’m honored to host this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards,” the rapper said in a press release. “I watched Nickelodeon growing up and now I get to slime some of my favorite people on stage. This is going to be a party that you won’t want to miss!”

But the 26-year-old musician is no newcomer to the Kids’ Choice Awards stage. Last year, Chance won “Favorite Collaboration” for the song “No Brainer” during a surprise appearance at the Nickelodeon award show in Chance’s hometown of Chicago.

As anyone who grew up watching Nickelodeon knows, the awards ceremony is always a slimy good time! The awards are voted on by Nickelodeon viewers and honor kids’ favorite stars across the worlds of film, television, music, sports and more. Winners receive an orange blimp figurine, while other guests and performers can get covered with the network’s trademark green slime.

The award show, which is scheduled for March 22nd, isn’t the only slime-tastic event Nickelodeon has planned. In the days leading up to the ceremony, Nickelodeon will host a two-day family-friendly music festival called “Slimefest.” The event will feature performances by JoJo Siwa, French Montana, Blanco Brown, and much more.

This year’s Kids’ Choice Awards nominees were also announced on Thursday. “Avengers: Endgame” leads the pack with 11 nominations; Taylor Swift is up next with five nominations; “Frozen 2,” “Henry Danger” and Lil Nas X received four nominations each.

One actor also made Kids’ Choice Awards history this year—with his nomination for Favorite Movie Actor for his role of Genie in “Aladdin,” Will Smith became the most nominated celebrity in Kids’ Choice Awards history, with a total of 29 noms.

Starting today, Nickelodeon fans can cast their ballots on the official Kids’ Choice Awards website!
