Timberlake Hosts 20th Kids' Choice Awards
Bring on the slime
The pop singer/actor has the honor of hosting the cable channel's milestone 20th Anniversary Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles on March 31.
"We're celebrating Kids' Choice's 20th anniversary in record-breaking Nickelodeon style, which means this will be the biggest, loudest, messiest spectacle in the show's history, and Justin Timberlake is just the superstar to lead the fun," says Marjorie Cohn, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, Nickelodeon and an Executive Producer for the award show. "Justin is a big kid at heart, and kids love that about him. He's a Kids' Choice Award winner, presenter, performer and slime recipient. Best of all, he's a great sport who's always game for anything."
"I'm revving up to have an even bigger blast than usual at Nickelodeon's 20th Kids' Choice Awards, and I'm thrilled and proud to be hosting the 20th anniversary show," adds Timberlake. "There's nothing like Kids' Choice for 'un-adult-erated' fun. While honoring kids' opinions, it taps into the kid in all of us."
The former 'N Sync member has won three of his own Kids' Choice awards: favorite musical group in 1999 and best burp in 2003 and 2006.
Starting March 5, children can vote online at Nick.com in 16 categories, including favorite movie, favorite cartoon, favorite singer and favorite book.
