Comedians, actors, and musicians use their extra free time during coronavirus isolation to give back to fans and support charities.
The Kids’ Choice Awards show will go on, and the slime will flow in a “virtually produced” show.
Originally scheduled for March 22 in Los Angeles with host Chance the Rapper, Nickelodeon’s celebrity-filled event has been reworked and rescheduled for May 2 (Saturday, 8 EDT/PDT), with “Victorious” star Victoria Justice as the new host. She’ll be joined by several famous guests.
Among the big names scheduled to appear remotely: Dwayne Johnson, Ariana Grande, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Camila Cabello, Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres, BTS, Shawn Mendes, Lil Nas X and a handful of “Avengers: Endgame” heroes.
Nickelodeon says the show will “reveal the winners through some of the most creative orange-blimp acceptances in KCA history,” and promises a segment in which pop star JoJo Siwa discovers slime secretly placed throughout her home. The network also plans to donate $1 million to No Kid Hungry, an organization that fights childhood hunger.
But if you can’t wait a week for some fresh children’s programming, Disney World has you covered. On Friday night, the currently closed theme park shared a pre-recorded video of its mesmerizing, musical Happily Ever After fireworks show.
