Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1988, Nickelodeon's KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS offers kids the chance to vote for their favorites in movies, television, music, books, sports, video games and more. In 1987, Nickelodeon created the 1ST ANNUAL BIG BALLOT, the first national poll of kids' choices, which one year later transformed into the KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS in 1988. Each year since the name change, the show has been hosted by a celebrity beloved by kids. Keeping with the kids' theme, the winners are announced with surprising reveals: basketballs dropping from the ceiling, live animals, slime slushies, kids in the audience and even a bear on a unicycle. Perhaps the most unpredictable element of the KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS is what has become an annual tradition and one of the hallmarks of the show: sliming a celebrity. Regarded as Nickelodeon's highest honor, being doused with green goop has become synonymous with the network.
Hosted music mogul DJ Khaled, the KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS aired live from the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 8pm ET (live)/PT (tape delay) on Nickelodeon, with simulcasts on TeenNick, NickToons and Nick Jr., and live stream on and the Nick app. Set to perform a medley of their hits at this year's show is multiplatinum hip-hop trio Migos, who are nominated for their first Kids' Choice Award in the category of Favorite Music Group. Migos will also be joined onstage by Grammy Award-winning record producer and songwriter DJ Mustard. The following celebrities are scheduled to appear: Ariana Grande, Adam Sandler, Chris Pratt, Jason Sudeikis, Noah Centineo, Lana Condor, Joey King, Liza Koshy, Paris Berelc, Caleb McLaughlin, Kiernan Shipka, Ally Brooke, Josh Peck, Lilly Singh and David Dobrik, along with cast members from Disney's ALADDIN (Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott), SHAZAM! (Zachary Levi, Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer) and DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD (Isabela Moner and Eugenio Derbez). These stars from the worlds of TV, music, film and social media are joined by Nickelodeon talent JoJo Siwa; Jace Norman and Riele Downs (HENRY DANGER); Ryan of Ryan ToysReview (RYAN'S MYSTERY PLAYDATE); Scarlet Spencer and Dallas Dupree Young (COUSINS FOR LIFE); and Owen Joyner, Daniella Perkins and Lilimar (KNIGHT SQUAD).
