When inflatable green slime oozes out of USC’s Galen Center, only one explanation comes to mind.

The Kid’s Choice Awards are back once again, to fulfill all of our childhood fantasies, and will air live on Nickelodeon from Downtown Los Angeles this Saturday.  

With third time host Jack Black back by popular demand, the most kid friendly awards show is guaranteed to be filled to the brim with plenty of gags and surprises. 

Presenters such as Russell Brand, Jason Segal, Sofia Vergara and Shaun White will grace the star studded orange carpet at this year’s show. 

Black Eyed Peas, along with Nickelodeon’s own Big Time Rush are slated to entertain the crowd by performing their hit songs. 

Justin Timberlake, two-time recipient of the famous Nickelodeon orange blimps and previous host, will be honored with the Big Help award for his philanthropy work with Shriners Hospitals for Children as well as his advocacy for the environment during Saturday’s ceremony. 

With gallons of slime, celebrities acting goofy and silly categories such as “Funniest TV Sidekick” and “Favorite Butt Kicker,” the Kid’s Choice Awards is sure to be the most fun show in town.
