Last night was Nickelodeon’s annual mega-party of celebrities, slime, and plenty of screaming kids. The Kids’ Choice Awards 2009 aired with a hoopla of excitement.

Much like last year, before the Awards began an orange carpet pre-show aired on Nickelodeon, while a similarly different pre-show with iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress was broadcast on Nick.com.

Disney-related happenings throughout the show included Dylan Sprouse from The Suite Life of Zach & Cody winning Favorite TV Actor, Selena Gomez from Wizards of Waverly Place winning Favorite TV Actress, High School Musical 3: Senior Year winning Favorite Movie (with Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, and Corbin Bleu present to accept the award), Vanessa Hudgens from High School Musical 3: Senior Year winning Favorite Movie Actress, Jesse McCartney (who is signed with the Disney-owned Hollywood Records) winning Favorite Male Singer, and the Jonas Brothers winning Favorite Music Group.

Another Disney-related award came as a surprise to its winner. Kids voted online as to what they wanted to see host Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson do: sing opera, knit leggings, or dress like Miley Cyrus. The latter won and as Johnson came onstage in a red dress and brown wig, Miley Cyrus was asked to join him to approve his look. Next, Johnson said, “You voted for this, so I give you that. But, I have something to give Miley. I have a very special surprise for you, Miley.”

“What?” Cyrus dryly asked.

“The kids have voted you as their favorite female singer!”

“Shut up! Shut up right now!” She then proceeded to shed tears at her win. “I don’t why I’m crying, but I really thought I was going to lose.”

Her acceptance speech included, as she was still crying, “I really thought I was going to lose, so thank you guys. I’m so excited. I know this isn’t like the Oscars, but it’s still amazing because unlike any other awards show, it’s all because of you guys. So thank you guys so much.”

She was up against Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Rihanna, so I think it was very nice of whoever thought up that little surprise way to unveil her win for her, especially since Nickelodeon isn’t even her network.

This year, the “Wanna Be” award was dropped in favor of the new “Big Green Help” award, given to a contributor to environmental help and support for the Earth. The recipient this year was Leonardo DiCaprio.

Another favorite award, the Burp award (which this year was only nominated to animated characters) was given to Rico from The Penguins of Madagascar, a new animated series based on the DreamWorks Madagascar movies, which premiered just following the Kids’ Choice Awards.


Other awards included American Idol winning Favorite Reality Show (which Paula Abdul and David Archuleta were there to accept), iCarly winning Favorite TV Show, and Spongebob Squarepants winning Favorite Cartoon for the sixth time.

Before the night was over, the secret celebrity slime had to take place. Last year Orlando Bloom was the one to get slimed, and this year it was none other than the Jonas Brothers. Which was quite a sight.

Overall it was another fun show, and one which I’m glad I got to see.
