The wait is coming to an end! Nickelodeon’s 2022 Kids’ Choice Awards will air live from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday, April 9.
Co-hosted by iCarly’s Miranda Cosgrove and NFL star Rob Gronkowski, the 35th annual ceremony will feature performances by Kid Cudi and Jack Harlow, an appearance by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, and let’s not forget the slime. For the first time ever, the show will feature over 1,000 epic slimes and dozens of hilarious pranks celebrating fan-favorite stars from film, TV, music, sports and more.
Nominees include Adele, Awkwafina, Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Saweetie, BTS, Ariana Grande, Tom Holland, LeBron James, Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, Olivia Rodrigo, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift. Samuel L Jackson and Charli D’Amelio are among the presenters.
“The Kids’ Choice Awards are such a unique show with tons of energy, superstars and of course lots of mud,” Cosgrove said in a press release. “Nickelodeon has always been my family and co-hosting this iconic show alongside Gronk will be a pleasure!”
How to watch the 2022 Kids’ Choice Awards for free
The 2022 Kids’ Choice Awards will air live from Los Angeles at 7:30 p.m. ET. The show will simulcast on Nickelodeon, TeenNick, NickToons and Nick Jr.
If you already have cable, you can watch the show on any of the aforementioned channels and on Nickelodeon.com. For non-cable users, the show will air on platforms that offer live TV such as Philo, Hulu + Live TV, DirecTV, Vidgo, and Sling.
It’s unclear if or when this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards show will land on Paramount+, which is the primary streaming destination for Nickelodeon, CBS, BET and other ViacomCBS programming.
For those who don’t want to spend anything upfront, sign up for Philo and enjoy a one-week free trial. The service costs $25 per month after the free trial, and it comes with dozens of cable channels, including Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nick Jr., A&E, MTV, BET, Discovery Channel, TLC, and HGTV.
The similarly priced Sling TV starts at $35 per month, and while the platform doesn’t currently offer a free trial, new customers will save $20 on the monthly fee.
Another way to get a free trial: DirecTV Stream. Right now, new DirecTV Stream customers will get a five-day free trial and a $30 discount for three months. Streaming plans start at $59.99 (usually $69.99).
Vidgo costs $66.33 a month for three months, when you sign up for the English Premium plan, which includes a free DVR and over 150 live and on-demand channels, including Nickelodeon, Nick Jr. and NickToons, plus other other cable channels like VH1, TLC, VH1, ABC, A&E, FX and Freeform.
