Kids’ Choice Awards 2019: JoJo Siwa, Noah Centineo Take on Bullying

This year’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards was full of positivity and encouragement to be yourself. DJ Khaled, known for his upbeat mantras, hosted the 32nd annual awards ceremony alongside JoJo Siwa at USC’s Galen center.

Siwa accepted the award for favorite social music star. Siwa said in her acceptance speech, “I get hated on every single day for looking different, looking not what a normal 15-year-old should look like.” She continued, “That is not the case. We are all human, we are all different, we’re allowed to look like we want to look, we’re allowed to do what we want to do because you are the number one you.”

The YouTube star accepted the award from co-host Khaled. She told Variety that Khaled was the celebrity she was most excited to talk to on the orange carpet, and that she draws inspiration from the rapper, citing “another one” as her favorite Khaled catchphrase.

Siwa was not the only guest preaching against bullying at the event. After accepting the award for favorite movie actor for “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” Noah Centineo said, “It’s 2019, bullying is not something that should exist anymore. Please do not sit on the sidelines. You see someone getting bullied, stand up for them. Stand up for each other. This is your world.”

The ceremony was full of musical performances, celebrity appearances, sneak peaks, and of course slime. Some of the highlights included the Migos performance, a Spongebob musical, an “Aladdin” promo with Will Smith, and Chris Pratt getting slime all over his suit after receiving the favorite butt kicker award for “Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom.”
