Kids' Choice Awards nominations give insight into another world

By Tim O'Brien     Mar 19, 2013 in Entertainment
The older generation often shakes it collective head over what the youngsters like as far as music, TV and movies are concerned.
However, that is not lost on business and advertisers. With Nickelodeon’s 26th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which airs March 23 on Nick, it can be an insightful look to their world. Oh, a world everybody was once in.
It also might explain why certain movies do well even though adults stayed away are were dragged to by a young one. Many are the one which end up at the top of the box office as the year ends. They are also the books that sell and the music, too.
To the stars, they do like this show. Performing will be Pitbull, featuring Grammy Award-Christina Aguilera, and Ke$ha. “Kids’ Choice is always one of the most fun awards shows of the year,” said Ke$ha. “I can’t wait to come out and party with all of my ANIMALS!!!”
Even host Josh Duhamel cannot wait to get going. “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," said Duhamel.
So, here are the nominations.
