Nickelodean Kid’s Choice Awards 2010 get slimed out
The Orange Carpet action saw celebrities greet a frenzied sea of kids to sign autographs, while Nick’s LUKE & WYATT hosted an OC show, interviewing the KCA hosts JESSICA MAUBOY, LIAM HEMSWORTH and iCarly’s JERRY TRAINOR along with presenters and performers, while Nick U.S. star DRAKE BELL rocked the OC crowd with his musical performance – the perfect prelude to the main event!
The colourful and kaleidoscopic KCA show kicked off with a beat-thumping musical opener by JESSICA MAUBOY, who performed her new single “Get Em Girls”, with a dynamic dance medley by JUSTICE CREW. After teaming up with the two other hosts, LIAM and JERRY, the terrific trio revealed the first blimp winner of the night as CODY SIMPSON for Fresh Aussie Muso
ROVE (who flew back to Australia from the US especially for KCA) teamed up with Biggest Losers’ COMMANDO to reveal that kids voted THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE for Fave Movie – just before JERRY TRAINOR appeared from a slime fountain and proceeded to make them the first SLIMING of the night! ROVE then joined LUKE & WYATT for a cross in the Slime Room – featuring a fun hot tub filled with warm SLIME – where Wyatt continued his ongoing campaign to become ROVE’s best friend.
Fave TV Show went to Nick’s own show iCARLY, accepted by JERRY, who plays Carly’s funnier-than-funny big brother Spencer on the hit show. New award category Big Kid was presented by MasterChef’s ADAM & CALLUM with the help of awesome Junior Masterchef kids, ANTHONY, PEIRRE, NICK and ALEX. The Big Kid winner DRAKE BELL got a sweet and delicious reveal, as he burst out from a giant croque en bouche – and being an award-winning big kid, he naturally started a food fight!
More big show highlights included: MATT PRESTON flying through the air dressed as a cherub (cravat and all!) and shooting an arrow through a huge “LIAM + MILEY” heart to reveal THE LAST SONG as winner of Fave Kiss; KYLE SANDILANDS not making an appearance on stage to collect his Nick blimp for Baddest Baddie which resulted in WWE SUPERSTAR THE MIZ throwing a tanty for his loss; a surprise appearance by Step Up 3D’s SHARNI VINSON to present with DRAKE BELL for Fave Aussie Muso (won by JESSICA MAUBOY); JUSTIN BIEBER accepting for Hottest Hottie; KATY PERRY accepting for Fave Song; a massive slime-dumping on LUKE & WYATT and CAMP ORANGE kids for winning Fave Reality Show; and NATALIE IMBRUGLIA and GUY SEBASTIAN revealing ROVE as the winner of the Awesome Aussie award, with a slime-camouflaged ROVE making an unexpected appearance from the slime fountain!
The impressive musical entertainment rounded out all the gooey good times with SHORT STACK rocking the arena with an atmospheric performance of “Planets”, while JUSTICE CREW got the crowd moving to their Fave Song dance megamix, to reveal CALIFORNIA GURLS by Katy Perry as the kids’ favourite tune. CODY SIMPSON displayed his youthful talent performing “iYiYiYi”, AMY MEREDITH belted out a medley of “Lying” and “Young at Heart”, and kids even got a bonus performance by GUY SEBASTIAN and RAI THISTLEWAYTE.

This year’s Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards featured a record 6 tonnes of slime –double the amount of any previous Aussie KCA’s in history – and Nick called upon one incredible kid, the Dreamworld Slime Collector, to deliver the LAST LITRE OF SLIME from Nick Central on the Gold Coast to the KCA show in Sydney! It was a race against time to make it by show day…and pure ‘kid power’ saw the safe arrival of the crucial record-breaking quantity of slime.
Voting for KCA 2010 closed with an all-time record amount of votes registered by Aussie kids, reaching over 1.4 million. Although kids can no longer vote, they can still continue to enjoy the awesome KCA Fame Game for iPhone and iPod Touch. The game is a ‘celeb-spotter’ and info application as well as a ‘guess who’ style game where users can test their celeb knowledge against the app or against their friends via Bluetooth. Kids can download the Fame Game for free at iTunes:
