As Viacom Inc said, with a record-breaking 326 million votes already in from around the world, kids can still cast their votes until 8pm on March 23 in 22 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.
As recently announced, multi-talented global superstars Pitbull, featuring Grammy Award-winning vocalist Christina Aguilera, and Ke$ha will ignite the stage with their respective hits "Feel This Moment" and "C'Mon." Leading into the awards, special guest correspondents Daniella Monet and the four friends from Nick Studio 10 will capture all the action on the orange carpet in a live stream on Nick.com and multiple platforms -- Android and iPhone smart phones and iPads. During The "We're Making A Pre-Show" Pre-Show, kids will be able to participate in the experience with total access to live event coverage and interact with their favorite stars in many ways.
Fans at home will be able to submit questions to the pre-show correspondents for the celebrities and vote on different activities for them to do on the fun fan-filled carpet. In addition to a trampoline, complete with aerialists, kids will get to see celebrities getting silly in the interactive GIF booth where they can don wacky wigs, costumes and props, as requested by kids on Nick's social media platforms. The stars will capture playful photos with life-size cardboard cutouts of SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Fairly OddParents, and will receive kudos from the fan high five gauntlet. Also scattered throughout the carpet will be "Do Not Touch" buttons that will spray multi-colored streamers and triggered surprise special effects. Exclusive Nick cameras will offer multiple viewing angles and will be featured alongside celebrity tweets, interactive polls, real-time updates and photos from the orange carpet and backstage.
