This past weekend was the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards, and after seeing the highlights from the show, I am not surprised parents are bored with kid's entertainment media. Yes, I know it's just a show, it's supposed to be cheesy and silly and slimy, and I didn't watch the whole thing, so I am just going on the clips from the website. But Katy Perry and Big Time Rush's performances were over-scripted (not even choreographed; there was very little dancing but quite a bit of pantomiming some stupid story about kings and shaking hands with kids in the front row). And as with past years' KCA "orange carpet" runways, we saw some extremely goofy fashion choices from folks like The Smiths and Katy Perry, who obviously need a little more reliable fashion advice.
Will Smith yelled everything and CeeLo Green tried to sabotage the event with the worst gimmick ever on a children's show. Which was pretty stupid. He should have just brought his peacock outfit out of the closet for this occasion. That would have spiced it up, and I wouldn't have even minded that if it stopped the "Creepy Voice" spiel. Sadly, Adam Sandler, the current fall-from-grace star beat Jack Sparrow with his awful Jack And Jill performance. My heart aches for those legitimate performers who were beat out by Sandler in a dress. Sad...
But the highlight of the night? Taylor Swift's Big Help Award (presented by cool mom role model, MIchelle Obama). And here's a run-down of the other awards. Not that awesome, but at least Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez got to take home some blimps.
