Nick brings grownup appeal to Kids’ Choice Awards

Tina Fey A nice mix of presenters, including Tina Fey and Steve Carell of NBC Thursday and “Date Night,” should lure more than a few adults into watching Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards broadcast March 27. A stunt involving Olympic champion Apolo Anton Ohno and a “slime slingshot” could also made a few grownup heads turn.

Chris Rock, Jackie Chan, Robert Downey Jr., Jonah Hill, Katy Perry, Victoria Justice, Queen Latifah, David Spade, Lea Michele, Dev Patel, Miranda Cosgrove, Shaun White,  Big Time Rush, Keke Palmer, Fred Figglehorn, and John Cena are among those also presenting awards. (Partial disclosure: I had to Google three of these names to know or remind myself of who they were, but I’m not saying which ones.)

Kevin James is hosting the KCAs at Pauley Pavilion, which will also be graced with the presence of Katy Perry, Cory Monteith, Jackson Rathbone, Jaden Smith, Queen Latifah and George Lopez — along with the previously announced Rihanna and Justin Bieber.

Nick will air a “Countdown to Kids’ Choice!” live pre-show telecast for the two hours preceding the KCAs.
