Katy Perry is one of the top nominees at the 25th annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and she’s just announced that she’ll also take the stage at USC’s Galen Center to perform at the awards show on March 31.
The pop star, whose Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection special edition album hits stores March 27, is enjoying yet another hit with her new single “Part of Me,” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last month. The song is Perry’s seventh career chart-topper.
One of her biggest hits, “Firework,” is up for the Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Song. She is also nominated for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Voice in an Animated Movie for her role in “The Smurfs.”“Katy Perry has doubly earned her position as kid favorite — through her music, of course — but also for reveling in an outrageous sliming on the show two years ago,” Marjorie Cohn, president of Original Programming and Development at Nickelodeon, said in a statement. “She works hard and plays hard, and that’s what makes her performance on the KCAs one to look forward to.”
Perry will join host Will Smith and a powerhouse roster of celebrity presenters, including Chris Rock, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Zac Efron, Victoria Justice, Big Time Rush and Cee Lo Green. Red-hot boy-band sensation One Direction is also performing at the show.
Fans can now vote on who takes home the famous blimp award on the KCA website and on Nick’s Facebook page. New this year, fans will also be able to vote for their favorite nominees on Twitter through the use of custom hashtags. Get all the info you need to support your favorite stars on Nick.com.
