Written by Jordan Cioppa. Published: February 27 2019


Our favorite (and only) slime-filled awards show is approaching fast, and yesterday we learned just about everything there is to know about this year's Kids’ Choice Awards! Nickelodeon took to social media to reveal some huge 2019 KCA announcements, including the date of, which is March 23! Here are some other exciting things to look forward to.


This Year’s Host Is. . .

DJ KHALED (said in DJ Khaled's voice, of course). That’s right, DJ Khaled has “the keys” to this year’s KCA host spot and we are so excited! Aside from his chart-topping hits, DJ Khaled has won us all over with his funny personality, uplifting attitude, and all-around positive vibes. We even got a glimpse into a day in the life a few year's back through his famous Snapchat stories. I think DJ Khaled is going to be amazing in this spot. His music resonates with people of all ages, especially the young KCA viewers, and he is even nominated for Favorite Male Artist this year! He (we) the best!




And the Nominees are. . .
