Beyonce, Will Smith, Jesse McCartney, and The Jonas Brothers captured coveted Nickelodeon labeled orange blimp trophies at the network’s 22nd Annual Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday. Picking up awards for their recent works including albums, films, and overall star power, Beyonce, Will Smith, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens were applauded by kids and attending celebrities including Usher, Jermaine Dupri, and Soulja Boy but neither Chris Brown or Rihanna showed for the Live! telecast. Brown, who withdrew his nomination for this year’s awards, was expected to skip the ceremony however, fans hoped that Rihanna would make her first major appearance since her Feb. 8 altercation with Brown before the Grammy Awards. Speaking of Rihanna on the red carpet, “Kiss Me Thru the Phone” rapper Soulja Boy told reporters “For them not to be here is very sad. I was looking forward to seeing them here”. “Yeah, right now, it’s a delicate time,” he added. “You know, the court date is coming up. I hope that they both get through it in a positive way.” Moving forward with the orange filled Kids’ Choice ceremony and subsequent events, attending families witnessed Beyonce’s win for Favorite Song (“Single Ladies”) and Will Smith’s win for Favorite Movie Actor (“Hancock”). Jesse McCartney and Miley Cyrus picked up Kids’ Choice blimps for Favorite Male and Female Singer respectively. Hosted by Dwayne Johnson, the awards show at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion honored kids’ favorite TV, movies, music and sports stars, and delighted the crowd with torrential superstar slime showers. Will Ferrell set the world record for the first-ever “Slip n’ Slime” by traveling over 200 ft. on the green goop, The Jonas Brothers got a sliming like no other, Jesse McCartney was soaked with slime and Hugh Jackman and Sandra Bullock were surprised with the green goo. Going green, too, albeit in a different manner, Leonardo DiCaprio accepted the first-ever Nickelodeon Big Green Help Award for his environmental efforts from last year’s Wannabe Award recipient, Cameron Diaz.
