2018 Kids’ Choice Awards Orange Blimp Nominees Are Here – Start Voting Today

It’s slime time again. Nickelodeon has unveiled the nominees for this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards, the network’s premiere live event. Voting is open in select categories and will continue in a four-week wave.

The KCAs may be all about the kids, but there are some pretty groovy grown-ups nominated for honors. John Cena, pro wrestler and now Nickelodeon star in his own right, returns to host, while Nick star JoJo Siwa will perform live at the event. Beyonce, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Taylor Swift and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot are in the running for orange blimps, along with many more big names.

Watch Cena talk all things KCAs:

One category I’m particularly excited about? Favorite Global Musical Star, which recognizes fan-favorites who circumambulate international borders and bring entertainment to kids around the world. The nominees include Taylor Swift (who debuted her most-buzzworthy music video to date, Look What You Made Me Do, at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards) representing North America; African deejay Black Coffee, sublime superstar Lorde (representing Australia and New Zealand); Colombian reggae sensation MALUMA; British pop-rock band, The Vamps; and Zara Larsson, the Swedish pop star representing Europe.

It will be interesting to see how these international sensations bring their unique tastes to the KCAs, and introduce new music to young fans in the U.S.

The international social squad will also return, letting fans worldwide witness the magic of the KCAs from their favorite influencer’s social channels.

Cena has already expanded his partnership with Nickelodeon, after signing on to play the voice role of Baron Draxum in the forthcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and executive produce a new competition series, Keep It Spotless.

The 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards air live on Saturday, March 24.
