No one is unslimeable, as the Nickelodeon’s 27th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards proved on Saturday, March 29th. Superstars including Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Downey Jr., One Direction, Sam & Cat, Selena Gomez, Kevin Hart, Patrick Star, Dwight Howard and more, won top honors and... Ultimately, not even Optimus Prime could save host, Mark Wahlberg from the massive green drenching delivered by none other than Kevin Hart and the host’s own kids. 

This year’s KCAs featured a new design – dual stages,a 360 degree mosh pit, a slime fountain delivering winner envelopes and a slime river snaking throughout the venue. Kicking off the star-studded celebration was internet sensation Todrick Hall with a pop performance medley featuring celeb cameos by Pharrell Williams, Austin Mahone and Cody Simpson, along with aerialists, cheerleaders and a step team.  Celebrated magician David Blaine made his live awards show debut tonight by facing his greatest challenge ever – slime – in an unforgettable moment that literally knocked his head off.

Top-selling recording artist Aloe Blacc took the stage with a medley of his hit songs, “Wake Me Up” and newest single “The Man,” while Brooklyn-based rock group American Authors closed the night with a multi-colored neon slime-filled performance of their #1 smash, “Best Day of My Life.”
