Blake Shelton to Host Kids Choice Awards
Blake Shelton might have been snubbed in the nominations for this year’s ACM awards, but he’s scored the biggest honor of his life. He gets to be slimed! That’s right–mega-country star Blake Shelton, who is also a judge on The Voice, is going to host the Kids Choice Awards.
Shelton has had his ups and downs this year. He suffered through a very public divorce from his fellow ACM perennial award nominee Miranda Lambert. They were like the Prince William and Kate Middleton of country music. They were like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. They were like Jack and Jackie Kennedy. Now he’s hooked up with Gwen Stefani, another of the judges on The Voice, so he’s probably not hurtin’ too bad.
Shelton was nominated for Top New Male Vocalist way back in 2001 and took home the Vocal Event of the Year prize in 2010. He’s been nominated several times and won once each for Male Vocalist of The Year and Entertainer of the Year. But obviously, he realizes none of that means didley-squat compared to hosting the Kids Choice Awards and being slimed. Others who were recently slimed as host include Nick Jonas and Mark Wahlberg, so Blake is in good company. He told Kathie Lee Gifford that being nominated was “the best you can hope for.” He told his agent, “I wanna do this thing with kids. It’s fun. I wanna get slimed.” And you can bet that he most definitely will. He went on to say, “I’ve been on countless stages throughout my life, but none have promised the madness, excitement and endless slime as Nick’s Kids’ Choice Awards, which is undoubtedly the ultimate party for kids. There is only one team here, and it’s Team Kids’ Choice so bring it on Nickelodeon!”
Nickelodeon’s kiddie’s award celebration goes off on March 12 in the heart of everything slimy, Los Angeles. Kids nominate and vote for their favorites from the worlds of film, music, sports and television in a star-studded live party. Maybe you can talk your parents into taking you. Maybe you can treat your kids to an event unlike any other in the award show spectrum. Maybe you wish you knew how to do that.
