Kids and adults alike are feeling excited about Nickelodeon's 27th Annual Kids' Choice Awards, which will take place at the USC's Galen Center in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday, March 29. And there are plenty of reasons to get enthusiastic about this year.
The latest excitement comes with the announcement that tough guy Mark Wahlberg will become a part of the annual slimefest!
The ultimate kids' experience will honor the very best across the worlds of film, television, music and more, and the Transformers star will be there to head it all up and add even more humor to the night.
"We are thrilled to welcome a superstar like Mark Wahlberg as he takes the helm as our master of ceremonies at the biggest kid event of the year," said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon's president of content development and production.
"We can't wait for him to host and have lots of slime-filled fun with Hollywood's biggest stars and our audience."
Hicks is certainly not going to be the only person thrilled that the actor will be a part of one of the most exciting awards shows this year. The thought of seeing Wahlberg survive the slime is enough reason to tune in to the show, don't you think?
And there's more good news for Nickelodeon fans — they can become a part of the action in a new and exciting way this year by voting for their favorites online at Nick.com.
