Who’s ready to watch their favorite celebrities get slimed? We know we are! And on Saturday, March 28, fans can witness red carpet stars get covered in the iconic green goo during the 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards, which will be taking place at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
But out of all the A-listers set to get covered in sludge, it’s Nick Jonas, the host of Nickelodeon’s 28th annual event, that we’re most eager to watch get soaked in the slimy slop this weekend. And apparently, we’re not the only ones!
During an interview with People Magazine, the “Jealous” singer explained he’s looking forward to getting doused in slime during the sticky 2015 ceremony. “I feel like it’s an honor,” he said. “It’s a rite of passage.” You bet it is! Celebrities like Neil Patrick Harris, Sandra Bullock and Justin Timberlake have all met their green, gooey fate at one point or another on the long-running awards show that first began in 1988.
But that’s not all the scoop we have on this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards host. Check out what you should know about the former Jonas Brothers member before he takes the stage:
1. Kids Choice Award Winner
Jonas is no stranger to the Kids’ Choice Awards! In fact, the 22-year-old former Jonas Brothers artist (along with his siblings Kevin, 27, and Joe, 25) received eight nominations, taking home two of those awards for Favorite Music Group, in both 2008 and 2009.
2. From Guest To Host
The singer and actor recently gushed that he was over-the-moon to be following in the footsteps of former Kids’ Choice Awards hosts like Josh Duhamel and Cameron Diaz. “To get to come back and host the show is a really incredible feeling,” he told People Magazine. “I’m really looking forward to the night.”
Jonas added that although he’s a “rookie at the hosting thing” he’s confident that he’ll be able to pull off a successful award show. “Overall I’m pretty familiar with how the show works and the vibe of it all, which is the most important thing,” he told ET. “As long as you come up here and have fun.”
Although Jonas is excited to take the stage, he also recognized that he’s a bit nervous to hold such a prestigious role in the show. “I’m sure they will,” he told People Magazine when questioned if he thinks his nerves will kick in. “I’m just looking to get up there and have a good time.”
4. Double Duty
In addition to hosting the awards show, Jonas will also be performing two of his hit songs during the kid-friendly event. Zap2It confirmed that the singer will be belting out his number-one radio tune “Jealous” as well as his Billboard Top 20 smash “Chains."
5. Favorite Male Singer
Jonas will be going head-to-head with some of the biggest names in the industry as they compete for the title of “Favorite Male Singer” at the 28th annual ceremony. Bruno Mars, Blake Shelton, Sam Smith, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams have all been nominated with Jonas in the prestigious category.
6. Who Does Jonas Want To Slime The Most?
The host revealed that out of all the celebrities set to attend the 2015 festivities, he’s most looking forward to covering Jamie Foxx, Josh Gad, Adam Sandler, Iggy Azalea and Five Seconds of Summer in the green guck. "The line up of the show is insane. So if I can get any of them slimed, I will be very happy,” the “Scream Queens” star admitted.
