Ciara attends the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Oct. 9, 2018 in Los Angeles.

Ciara will take the stage at Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports to turn out a medley including singles "Set" and "Level Up" from her latest album, Beauty Marks, plus her 2004 hit "1,2 Step," Billboard has learned exclusively.

The KCS awards will air on Nickelodeon on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 8pm ET, with Michael Strahan returning as host for the second time. Stephen Curry, James Harden and Serena Williams lead this year's nominees with four noms each, with Saquon Barkley, Tom Brady, Nikki Bella, LeBron James, Patrick Mahomes, Alex Morgan and Free Solo subject Alex Honnold among other contenders.

Ciara's husband Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback who hosted the event three consecutive years from 2015-17, will also be participating in this year's show. Ciara has been in the audience all three times to see her husband get doused with his share of the green stuff, and she tells Billboard she's excited to break out from the sidelines.

"The Kids' Choice Sports Awards are always fun, we bring the whole family," she says. "The kids have been able to see Russell on the stage over the years so I'm excited for them to see me performing on the stage this year!"
