Another Kid’s Choice Awards has come and gone, and while the winners get to take home an orange blimp, someone has to clean up all of that slime. This year’s event was hosted by DJ Khaled and broadcast live from USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles. The annual show celebrates kids’ favorites in pop culture, television, music, social media and movies over the past year.
There were plenty of big entrances and reveals at this year’s event. DJ Khaled made his way to the venue with Kylie Jenner and the Jonas Brothers. Will Smith, Mena Massoud, and Naomi Scott from Disney’s “Aladdin” arrived on a magic carpet, and Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, and Michael Peña, from “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” released a first-look trailer for the film.
Migos performed their hits “Walk It Talk It” and “Stir Fry,” along with the single “Pure Water,” accompanied by DJ Durel.
Members of the original Broadway cast of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical–Allan Washington (“Plankton”), Brian Ray (“Mr. Krabs”), Christina Sajous (“Sandy”), Danny Skinner (“Patrick”), Ethan Slater (“SpongeBob”) and Gavin Lee (“Squidward”)–also made their KCA debut with a medley of “Best Day Ever” and the animated show’s iconic theme song.
