At Pop, fans finally have a destination that celebrates the fun of being a fan. Fans aren't even fans anymore — they're gladiators, tributes, human beings and blockheads. Seen in more than 80 million homes, Pop gives fans a dedicated channel that loves being a fan as much as they do. A channel that respects talent over celebrity. A channel filled with optimism, passion, humor, and excitement. A channel that understands the fun doesn't stop when the credits roll... it's really just the beginning.

Pop is a joint venture of CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS) and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF). The partnership combines CBS's programming, production and marketing assets with Lionsgate's resources in motion pictures, television and digitally delivered content.

London, 29th March 2015 6:40pm – Global pop phenomenon, One Direction and the group's legions of fans were recognised at 28th Annual Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards. The group took home two blimps, winning Favourite Music Group in the international vote as well as UK Favourite Music Act. Devoted fans of the group, the Directioners, were also recognised as they won UK Favourite Fan Family.

Other UK winners at this year's Kids' Choice Awards included Rixton (UK Favourite Breakthrough) and Alexis Sánchez (UK Favourite Football Star). Zoella (Zoe Sugg) repeated her victory of last year, winning UK Favourite Vlogger for the second year in a row. In the new categories for the year, The Diamond Mine Cart, took the blimp for UK Favourite Tipster while pet of Joey Essex, Prince Essex, proved himself 'the cat's meow,' by being voted UK Favourite Celebrity Animal. Recognising their outstanding contribution to entertainment, Ant and Dec were awarded the honorary UK TV Legends Award. Fans that missed the premiere broadcast of the Awards this evening will have another chance to catch the slime and star-filled Awards Show when it encores at 6:30pm on Monday, 30th March. The Awards will air through the week on Nickelodeon and, for the very first time, on Channel 5 on Sunday, 5th April.

Hosted by recording artist/actor and kids' pick for Favourite Male Singer Nick Jonas, the awards were broadcast from Los Angeles' legendary "Fabulous" Forum, where kids celebrated their favourites from the worlds of film, music, television and more. Kids from around the world cast more than 500 million votes, a record-breaking tally.


Multi-talented host Jonas opened the show with a stunning performance of his Billboard Top 10 smash, "Chains" and radio hit, "Jealous." Backed by tween-metal trio Unlocking the Truth, his theatrical set also featured a celeb-filled video montage, 3D elements and aerialists. Hip-hop phenomenon Iggy Azalea was joined by Academy Award- and Grammy-winner Jennifer Hudson onstage in a bold and dynamic rendition of their hit "Trouble." In the epic Awards finale, Aussie pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer's powerful performance of "What I Like About You" literally blew out the slime-filled speakers, flooding the stage with thousands of gallons of slime.

This year's Kids' Choice Awards proved to be as messy as ever: from Diversity being caught in a slime shower in the Awards introduction to Jennifer Lopez presenting Jonas with his award and a surprise sliming. Backstage Chris Pratt and the cast of Nickelodeon show Henry Danger took each other on in a pie fight, while Ant and Dec were coated in the green goo by UK hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely presented them with Nickelodeon's first ever Kids' Choice Award UK TV Legends honorary Award.


The star-studded telecast featured additional celebrity participants, including: Jamie Foxx, Emma Stone, Liam Hemsworth, Chris Rock, Zendaya, Debby Ryan, Chloe Bennet, Fifth Harmony, Joe Jonas, Nick Cannon, Shawn Mendes, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Kevin James, Mo'ne Davis, Skylar Diggins, Ross Lynch, Quvenzhané Wallis, Meghan Trainor, Jennette McCurdy plus cast members from The Haunted Hathaways, SpongeBob SquarePants, and many others.

Kids and families paid tribute to their favourites by casting across seven UK specific and additional international categories online, on The Nick App and via Twitter using the hashtag #KCA. Fans can catch up on all of the gossip from the slime-fest by going to kca.nick.co.uk, the official destination for everything Kids' Choice Awards, with hilarious videos, photo galleries, games and all of the latest KCA news on this year's show.

The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards is right around the corner, and the 28th annual slime-fest is set to be bigger than ever.

For the first time, the show will be simulcast across Viacom properties Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons and TV Land, in addition to live streaming on Nick.com and the Nick App. Following the live show, encores will air across said cable nets, and CMT.

"At Nickelodeon, we are really in touch with kids and this show always reflects what's going on in their lives," exec producer Jay Schmalholz tells Variety. "Having fun, making kid's laugh, staying relevant and, of course, slime" are all key components that make Kids' Choice a success year-to-year.

Hosted by Nick Jonas from the Forum in Inglewood, California, the KCAs will welcome the likes of Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Liam Hemsworth, Grant Gustin, Nick Cannon, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and YouTuber Bethany Mota, plus tween fan-favorites including Laura Marano, Ross Lynch, Debby Ryan, Shawn Mendes and Zendaya.

"I'm really excited to see Jamie Foxx, Chris Pratt and some surprise guests I can't mention," Jonas tells Variety.

Jonas also revealed that as emcee, he gets special privileges. "As the host, I also got to send the show my wish list of celebrity slimings," he teased. "You'll have to tune in to see who it will be."

Pulling double duty, the singer will open the show with a medley performance of his double platinum smash hit "Jealous" and "Chains." Australian rock band 5 Seconds of Summer is also set to take the stage, along with Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson who will play their duet "Trouble" together.

Jonas and Schmalholz tell Variety what else to expect this weekend at the Kids' Choice Awards:

What makes you the perfect Kids' Choice Awards host?

Jonas: "I grew up watching Nickelodeon and in addition to winning a couple of blimps, I had the opportunity to perform on the show while with the Jonas Brothers. I've always dreamed of hosting the show and am really excited. It will be fun."

Did you watch the KCAs when you were a kid?

Jonas: "Of course! I loved watching all of the performances, but I think my favorite part was seeing the celebrity slimings."

How are prepping for the big show?

Jonas: "I've been watching videos of previous hosts, focusing and visualizing success."

Schmalholz: "It's always hard to top yourself. But this year, we're in the biggest venue we've ever been in, so by scream volume alone, we've already topped ourselves. Our host Nick Jonas is incredibly relevant right now. He connects with kids everywhere because he's a kid himself."

What is different about the show this year?

Schmalholz: "We're incorporating our Nickelodeon stars more than ever this year. You will see cast members from 'Bella and the Bulldogs,' 'Henry Danger,' 'Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn' and 'The Thundermans' to name a few. This year we built the first-ever human slime car wash for the winner of our live voting category, and created a dancing archway of slime for our winners to walk through prior to accepting their award."

Do you have any surprises up your sleeves?

Jonas: "I can't give away any surprises — where's the fun in that?!"

Schmalholz: "Yes, but if I told you they wouldn't be surprises! What I can tell you is that we will have some unannounced special celebrity appearances and sliming spectacles that will have to be seen to believe. Also, we're using a 3D mapping technology to create multiple and unique environments in the house."

Why do celebrities love the Kids' Choice Awards?

Schmalholz: "Celebrities are always looking to connect with their audience and there's no better place than Nickelodeon for them to do that. This show is a lot of fun and winning a blimp and getting slimed is the ultimate honor in Hollywood…every A-list celebrity in Hollywood has either asked to be slimed or is waiting to be slimed."

Are you ready to get slimed?

Jonas: "Yes! To be slimed has often been described as "the ultimate honor" and who wouldn't want to be honored?"

How much slime should we expect?

Schmalholz: "Slime is always the star of the Kids' Choice Awards, and this year we are truly infusing it in every aspect of the show…For our finale, we will be using more slime than ever with 5 Second of Summer. Let's just say, it will be a slime finale of epic proportions."

Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards air Saturday, March 28 at 8:00 p.m.
