Katy Perry has previously appeared at the KCAs in 2012 when she revelled in an outrageous sliming moment. A global superstar whose two albums have generated a record-breaking string of #1 hit singles and multiplatinum sales during the past four years, Perry has just concluded her sold-out “California Dreams Tour” with 124 arena performances internationally. The star is nominated for three

Kids’ Choice Awards this year, including Favourite Female Singer, Favourite Song (“Firework”) and Favourite Voice in an Animated Movie for her role on

The Smurfs. 

Fans can now vote for their favourite stars on and via a Facebook application that will live on the Nickelodeon Facebook page. Users will be able to vote from a tab on the page and, for the first time ever, the entire voting experience can be embedded directly into Facebook wall posts. Also new this year, fans will be able to vote for their favourite nominees on Twitter through the use of custom hash tags. 

This year, kids not only pick the winners, but they get to help host Will Smith pull off the greatest slime event in KCA history.  Through a brand-new iPad, iPhone and iPod app, and the KCA website, kids need to find slime hidden throughout the photo galleries, news, and videos.  If kids collect enough slime, Will Smith will pull off the biggest slime event ever in this year’s show. Aided by weekly missions, kids will have the chance to earn digital rewards and move up the slime operative ranks.
