Diaz, Rock, Berry to light up Nick's Kids Choice Awards

 MUMBAI: Now in its 18th year Nickelodeon US' Kids Choice Awards (KCA) will dazzle with megastar wattage. Some of the hottest entertainers around join the host comedian Ben Stiller for the show, which takes place on 2 April.


The list of entertainment icons scheduled to appear include a Charlie's Angel Cameron Diaz, pop star Justin Timberlake, Chris Rock who earlier this year hosted the Oscars and Oscar winner Halle Berry.

Three-time KCA winner Will Smith will mark his first award show musical performance in three years with the debut of the song Switch from his upcoming album Lost and Found. Nick has stated that it is a true testament of kid power when megastars like Will Smith choose them to be among the first to share special moments like a long-awaited live performance.



Multi-platinum selling punk-pop quintet Simple Plan will rock UCLA's Pauley Pavilion by performing Shut Up! A highlight of the show will be a never-been-done-before stunt. This will involve shooting a human cannonball into the sky before landing in a giant pool of slime. Additionally, one special star will be presented with the Wannabe Award -- an honour bestowed on a celebrity role model who kids most "want to be." Past recipients include Smith, Tom Cruise, Adam Sandler and Janet Jackson.

In a move to continue tradition the event will end with celebrity sliming which will drench an astonished star with green goo, inciting shrieks of delight from the crowd. Past wearers of the green include Cruise, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Jim Carrey, Rosie O'Donnell, and recipients Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
