UPDATE: Kids’ Choice Awards host Nick Jonas answers questions from kids

BANNER SITE

Former boy band member Nick Jonas will take the stage as the host of Nickelodeon’s 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday night, but he remembers enjoying the show as kid himself not too long ago.

“Jack Black was always the perfect host,” Jonas tells EW.

Now that he’s running the show, Jonas can think of a category he’d like to add to the Kids’ Choice Awards mix. “Best Sport About Being Slimed,” he says. “It’s pretty insane when it actually happens.”

As for his favorites in some of the Kids’ Choice Awards preexisting categories, Jonas says SpongeBob SquarePants would be his pick for Favorite Cartoon—”Gotta go with the classic!”— but his choice for Favorite Reality Show may be slightly more surprising.

“There was a show, it’s not on TV anymore, but it was called Game of Crowns,” Jonas explains, “and it was basically all these older woman that were competing in a beauty pageant.

To better channel kids’ minds, we asked the experts to come up with questions of their own:

What does the line from “Jealous” mean when you say, “I turn me shemusica/And I’m puffing my chest”? Charlie, 5

The line is “I turn my chin music up.” It’s a baseball reference. I’m a big baseball fan. You’re telling a batter to back up. So in reference to the song, you’re telling the guy to back up.

Did you share a room with your brothers growing up? Jake, 9

We all three shared, all four even. We got very comfortable. It’s nice to have that growing up. There are times I miss it, but I’m really excited to be on my own.

What time do you go to bed? Sam, 8

With work I can go to bed pretty late, but I’ve been trying to get my rest, so maybe around 9:45 p.m./10 p.m.

How old were you when you wrote your first song, and what was it? Elyse, 15

I think I was around 11 or 12. It was a Christmas song that I recorded for a benefit. I definitely listen to some of the old songs. It’s like walking down memory lane.

Is that your grandma in the “Jealous” video? Ava, 6

It’s not my grandma. Although she does look like she can be. She’s a very sweet lady that we cast as part of the video.

What was your least favorite subject in school?  Tom, 6

Math. I tried to avoid math at all costs. I liked spelling, if that’s a subject. I felt like I was actually pretty good at it.

What food do you hate? Kaitlyn, 11

Goat cheese.

Nick Jonas is going to be green, but not with envy.

As the host of the upcoming Kids’ Choice Awards, the singer has already made peace with the fact that he will be doused with Nickelodeon’s infamous green goo.

“But I feel like it’s an honor,” Jonas, 22, tells PEOPLE of being slimed. “It’s a rite of passage.”

Hosting the annual awards show has been “a dream” of the former Jonas Brothers member, who first attended the show with his siblings in 2006.

“But I’m sure they will,” quips Jonas, who will also perform his massive hit “Jealous” and new single “Chains” on the show. “I’m just looking to get up there and having a good time.”

UPDATE: Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Host Nick Jonas Teases Surprise Celebrity Guests

BANNER SITE

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.
