Nickelodeon’s 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards are just around the corner, and the network has announced that DJ Khaled will host the event. The annual award show will go live on March 23rd from the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California. The news, which also included this year’s nominees, was announced today by Double Dare host Liza Koshy via a first-time Kids’ Choice Awards nomination livestream event across Nickelodeon’s YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. The annual event celebrates the movies, music, gaming, and rising talent of the previous year.

Said DJ Khaled, “Father of Asahd is here to let you know the biggest party of the year is about to go up! That’s right, March 23rd I’m your host, DJ Khaled for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. I’ll see you soon!”

Marvel leads the pack this year with “Avengers: Infinity War” after the movie picked up ten nominations. Marvel also took second-place after “Black Panther” received five nominations. Third-place is a tie between Cardi B and “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation,” both received four nominations each this year.

First-time nominees include Jason Momoa, Emilia Clarke, James Corden, Noah Centineo, Bebe Rexha, Tyra Banks and the CW series “Riverdale.” This year also introduces five new categories for voting: Favorite TV Host, Favorite TV Judges, Favorite Superhero and Favorite Gamer.

For another first, kids will get to decide how they want to help the world in a new category called How Do You Want to Help?

Voting began today on the official website at KCA2019.com, and on the Screens Up app here on iOS and Google Play in the US. International fans can also cast votes through the Nick Play app in regions where it is available. Fans will also be able to cast their vote through social media on Twitter, and this year fans will be able to vote through specific posts on Instagram. Nickelodeon is launching its first-ever Augmented Reality camera effect on Instagram this year, where fans can slime themselves and their friends.

DJ Khaled is nominated this year for three Kids’ Choice Awards. In 2018, he was nominated for Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Song for “I’m the One” featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne. He also presented the award for “Favorite Music Group” in 2017.
