On Saturday 28 March the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, hosted by Dwayne Johnson at UCLA’s Pauley Pavillion, honoured kids’ favourite TV, movies, music and sports stars, and delighted the crowd with torrential superstar slime showers. For the fourth straight year the Awards show broke a record in the US for most total viewers averaging nearly 7.7 million!

Will Ferrell set the world record for the first-ever “Slip n’ Slime” by traveling over 200 ft. on the green goop, The Jonas Brothers got a sliming like no other, Jesse McCartney was soaked with slime and Hugh Jackman and Sandra Bullock were surprised with the green goo. Going green, too, albeit in a different manner, Leonardo DiCaprio accepted the first-ever Nickelodeon Big Green Help Award for his environmental efforts from last year’s Wannabe Award recipient, Cameron Diaz.



True to tradition, kids honoured their favourites by casting over 90 million votes across 18 categories. Celebs from the worlds of film, music, sports and television attended the legendary star-studded show, with lucky stars Beyoncé, Will Smith, Vanessa Hudgens, Jack Black, Selena Gomez, The Jonas Brothers, Jesse McCartney and Miley Cyrus capturing the coveted orange Blimp trophies.

Bright orange blimps were bestowed upon Will Smith for Favourite Movie Actor, Vanessa Hudgens for Favourite Movie Actress, High School Musical 3 for Favourite Movie and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa for Favourite Animated Movie. Last year’s host Jack Black clinched a blimp for Favourite Voice from an Animated Movie for his vocals as Po in Kung Fu Panda. Top TV awards went to iCarly as Favourite TV Show, American Idol as Favourite Reality Show, SpongeBob SquarePants as Favourite Cartoon, and Dylan Sprouse and Selena Gomez collected Blimps for Favourite TV Actor and Favourite TV Actress, respectively. In music, Favourite Female Singer went to Miley Cyrus, Favourite Male Singer to Jesse McCartney, Favourite Music Group to The Jonas Brothers, and Favourite Song went to Beyoncé for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”. Peyton Manning scored for Favourite Male Athlete, Candace Parker for Favourite Female Athlete, the Twilight series won for Favourite Book, and Guitar Hero World Tour won for Favourite Videogame.

In a show highlight, Leonardo DiCaprio accepted the first-ever Big Green Help Award for his extensive environmental efforts. Dedicated environmentalist Cameron Diaz, last year’s recipient of The Wannabe Award, a former Kids’ Choice Awards host (2004) and Burp Award winner (2001), presented him the award. In accepting, DiCaprio exclaimed, “We need all of you, the next generation, to be aware. You’re the future”.

The Jonas Brothers joined the elite ranks of superstars slimed when they helped Johnson fulfill his goal of being the best Kids’ Choice Awards host ever. The mega-star trio finally found the key – the musical key of G (for green, of course) – that released the secret slime from the volcanic Slime Pyramid, spraying the stage with the most goo the Kids’ Choice Awards has seen.

While they weren’t getting saturated with slime, The Jonas Brothers rocked the house with their hit songs, “SOS” and “Burnin’ Up”. The Pussycat Dolls got the audience moving earlier in the show with rousing performances of “Jai Ho” and “When I Grow Up”.

Noisier and more animated than ever, competitors for The Burp Award – judged on the Orange Carpet by iCarly’s Jerry Trainor – were all Nickelodeon animated stars. Nick star Victoria Justice (Zoey 101, Spectacular) traveled by submarine all the way down to Bikini Bottom, where she encountered burp award hopefuls SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick and Squidward. And when Trainor declared The Penguins of Madagascar’s Rico the best burper, the animated champ joined a roster of past proud best belchers including Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba and Steve Irwin (shared honour), Justin Timberlake (two-time winner) and Hugh Jackman.

And the voting didn’t stop there. During the award show, viewers were asked to vote live on which skill Johnson should learn. Almost 600,000 viewers opted to see him learn how to dress like Miley Cyrus, who was on hand for the tutorial, beating out learning how to sing opera or knit.

The star-studded show featured additional celebrity participants, including: Paula Abdul, David Archuleta, John Cena, Lily Collins, Miranda Cosgrove, Chase Crawford, Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, America Ferrera, Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf, George Lopez, Keke Palmer, Josh Peck, Chris Pine, Amy Poehler, Queen Latifah, Emma Roberts, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Marlon Wayans, Owen Wilson, Alex Wolff, Nat Wolff and many others
