More than 11 years after he landed his first hits, Justin Bieber remains the artist kids would most like to see slimed. Bieber is the top music nominee at the 2021 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards with five nods: favorite male artist, favorite song (“Yummy”) and three for favorite music collaboration, "Lonely” (a collab with Benny Blanco), "Holy” (featuring Chance the Rapper) and "Stuck With U" (a collab with Ariana Grande).
BlackPink, Selena Gomez, Grande, The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, BTS, Drake and Shawn Mendes are runners-up, with two music nods each. Drake’s strong showing is impressive because he is 34, practically over-the-hill by Nickelodeon standards.
Actor and comedian Kenan Thompson will host the show, which is set to air live on March 13 -- the night before the Grammy Awards. The show, which honors fan favorites in film, television, music, sports and more, will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons and the Nick Jr. channel. It is set to air at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT.
