Multi-platinum recording artist and global superstar Katy Perry will break the sound barrier at USC’s Galen Center with her first live performance at Nickelodeon’s 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, March 31, at 8 p.m. (ET/tape delayed for West Coast).
Perry, topping the number of Kids’ Choice Award nominations by an individual this year, will join host Will Smith and a roster of celebrity presenters, including Chris Rock (What to Expect When You’re Expecting), Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man), Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), Zac Efron (The Lucky One), Heidi Klum (Project Runway), Victoria Justice (Victorious), Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly), Big Time Rush, Chris Colfer (Glee) and Cee Lo Green (The Voice) as well as recently announced performers, UK pop sensation One Direction.
Kids can cast their votes until March 31 in 20 total categories across all of Nickelodeon’s digital outlets, including Nick.com, Nick Mobile app as well as Nickelodeon’s Facebook page and Twitter feed.
“Katy Perry has doubly earned her position as kid favorite — through her music of course — but also for reveling in an outrageous sliming on the show two years ago,” said Marjorie Cohn, president, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group and executive producer of the show. “She works hard and plays hard and that’s what makes her performance on the KCA’s one to look forward to.”
Nickelodeon, now in its 32nd year, is a leading entertainment brand for kids.
