Chance The Rapper To Host Kids’ Choice Awards

 


Chance The Rapper has been picked to host the 2020 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

The Grammy winner has announced the big news in a statement, revealing he’s “due for a sliming” – a nod to the prizegiving’s famously messy antics, where presenters are covered with green goo.

The star skipped last year’s (19) ceremony, where he, DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, and Quavo shared the Favorite Collaboration title for their hit No Brainer.

“Last year I wanted to be at the KCAs to accept my awards and I wasn’t able to be there,” he adds, “so my slime meter is low right now.”

Meanwhile, Avengers: End Game, Lil Nas X and Taylor Swift look set to be the big winners, landing a host of nods.

The final Avengers movie is up for Favorite Movie, while many castmates are also nominated in the actor categories, and Lil Nas X’s four nominations include Favorite New Artist and Favorite Song – for Old Town Road.

Swift has landed mentions in the leading music categories and one for her role of Bombalurina in the movie flop Cats.

The awards show will be held in Los Angeles on 22 March (20).
