Cena then made his way to the show stage through a maze of cheering kids, slime and music.
During the show, Little Mix performed a medley of their hit singles, "Touch" and "Shout Out to My Ex," right before taking home the blimp for Favourite Global Music Star. Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello also took to the KCA stage to perform their platinum-selling number-one single, "Bad Things," against the backdrop of a lighting and projection spectacle.

Chris Pratt got a surprise sliming in the Kids' Choice control room while Kevin Hart got doused with the coveted green goo after his triple win for Favourite Villain, Most Wanted Pet and BFFs.
