Actor Josh Duhamel to host Nick's 26th Kids' Choice Awards

MUMBAI: Actor Josh Duhamel will host for the first time US kids? broadcaster Nickelodeon?s 26th Annual Kids? Choice Awards on 23 March 2013.

It is a kid experience where Hollywood and slime collide, kids rule and honour their favorites from the worlds of film, music, sports and television. The celebrity-filled show takes place at USC?s Galen Center.

Nickelodeon president, content development Marjorie Cohn, who is also the executive producer of the Kids? Choice Awards, said, "Josh has come out to play before for Kids? Choice and as a previous ?best arm fart? winner we know he?ll do what it takes to be a great host. We promise that this year will deliver the special, one-of-a-kind surprise-filled slimefest for which our annual telecast is famous."

Duhamel said, "Nickelodeon?s Kids? Choice Awards is a great event that celebrates kids by honouring their opinions and taps into the kid in all of us. I have a lot of secret plans for when I host the awards, but I can tell you I?m excited to lead millions of kids into total crazy fun, chaos ...and, of course, endless slime!"
