Hosted by country music superstar and coach on NBC’s The Voice, Blake Shelton, the awards were broadcast from the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California, where kids celebrated the best of everything they love in pop culture. The show premiered on Nickelodeon in Asia this morning and encores today at 6pm (HK/MY/PH/SG).

This year’s festivities kicked off with Shelton getting hosting pep talks from celebrity friends including Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Chewbacca and BB-8. After being alerted that the Stormtroopers were trying to take over the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards, Shelton jumped into action and battled his way onto the show stage via a super-charged chair from The Voice.

During the show, singer-songwriter Charlie Puth and hip-hop star Wiz Khalifa performed a medley of “One Call Away” and “See You Again,” right before taking home the blimp for Favorite Collaboration. DNCE closed the show with a performance of their chart-topping single “Cake by the Ocean” that culminated with an ultimate slime dousing of the audience.

The 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards proved to be a mega slime fest, from kids in the audience awarding Shelton with an epic finale sliming, to Jace Norman dumping a bucket of green goo on John Stamos, to Fifth Harmony getting drenched after their win for Favorite Music Group, and Shelton welcoming Jason Sudeikis and Josh Gad to the green side.
