The Black Eyed Peas have been announced as one of the performers at the 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards, which go live on Nickelodeon on April 2. The group’s sole lady, Fergie, says she’s excited about appearing at the event, but it seems that she has one reservation about the gig.
“I’m so stoked for the Kids’ Choice Awards,” Fergie target="_blank">told UsMagazine.com, but added, “I hope we don’t get slimed!” Of course, many celebrities have gotten covered in green goo at the awards bash over the years. (Who could forget last year’s show, when a blue-wigged, latex-wearing Katy Perry got soaked in slime ?)
Jack Black is set to host the Kids’ Choice Awards again this year. It marks the actor’s third time emceeing the fun-filled ceremony. “Anyone can host something once. But if they ask you back a second time, that means they liked the way you did it,” Black explained recently to Entertainment Weekly. “And if you host a third time, that means the first time wasn’t a fluke, and it means you did good two times. So the third time, well — that’s the real achievement.”
With stars like Kristen Stewart, Emma Watson, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber all up for blimps in various categories at the 2011 show, anything can happen. Multiple nominee Nick Jonas recently spoke to us about the event and really wants someone in his family to take home a prize this year. (Not only are the Jonas Brothers competing for the Favorite Music Group honor, but Nick and his brother Joe also have scored Favorite TV Actor nods.)
“We’re really blessed to be nominated for favorite band again this year,” he said. “We’d love to win it. That’d be great. We’re up against some great people, who have had some great success.
“And as far as the best actor nomination goes, I’m really shocked by that. As far as the acting thing goes I’m still learning,” Nick added. “I don’t know if I’ll win it. I hope I do. Maybe the fans will vote for us. It’s always funny with me and Joe, it kind of splits the vote a bit and so maybe just vote for Kevin. I think no matter if Joe or I did win, I’d be like, ‘I think Kevin’s the funniest actor out of all of us. He deserves this.’ ”
