Nickelodeon is known world-over as the # 1 global entertainment brand dedicated to kids. The brand is all about giving kids what they want.

Keeping this in mind, Nickelodeon through LIVE Viacom18 is bringing the biggest and most popular Kids award show – The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award to India for the very first time. The only live awards show of the kids, by the kids and for the kids where kids get to vote across categories for their favorites who will get declared the winners!

The highest number of votes recorded ever!

The show is known for its fun elements such as orange carpet, orange blimps, green slime mania (term coined by Nickelodeon, where celebrities as a mark of honour, get green slimed!), vivacious performances and kids having a blast. In the past, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards has witnessed popular personalities such as Johnny Depp, Pitbull and Halle Berry to name a few, presenting awards, performing and winning awards as well! Furthermore, the show has also caught many celebrities off guard by sliming the likes of Justin Bieber, Will Smith and even Daniel Radcliff.
