The Kids' Choice Awards, also known as the KCAs, is an annual fan voted award show that airs on Nickelodeon.


The award show is held in late March or early April, and honours the year's biggest television, movie, and music acts, as voted by Nickelodeon viewers. Winners for most of the awards receive a hollow orange blimp figurine, a logo outline for much of the network's 1984-2009 era, which also doubles as a kaleidoscope. 3 awards are special awards where the winner has been voted for by Nickelodeon staff, and are gold instead of orange.

Pervious winners of the show have included Will Smith and Spongebob Squarepants whom have both won the most awards with 10 each; Justin Bieber (4); Selena Gomez (9); Miley Cyrus (7); Jack Black (3); *NSYNC and many others.

There is also a tradition of "sliming" celebrities, where a famous person has green goo poured all over them unexpectedly. They may be slimed on or off stage, and pervious celebrities that have been slimed include Justin Bieber, Will Smith, Neil Patrick Harris and Katy Perry.

The way they announce the winners of the awards is also different to other shows. They have used things such as balloons, t-shirts, models, giant letters and feet in the past to announce winners as opposed to just saying it or using an envelope.
