First-Look At Nickelodeon's 2018 Kids' Choice Awards Stage

It’s almost time for Nickelodeon's 2018 Kids' Choice Awards, which will be presented for the 31st time this Saturday night. With a performance from N.E.R.D. and presenters ranging from Channing Tatum and Kristen Bell to YouTube star Alex Wassabi, the awards will honor kids' favorites from the worlds of film, television, music, pop culture, animation and more!

Some of that will be represented on the KCAs stage, which The A.V. Club has unveiled a aweslime first look of. Packed with secrets and slime-centric moments, the stage boasts both a massive, blimp-shaped video screen and a swingset perched perilously over a slime pit. Presenters will hand out awards from amidst a foam pit stuffed with mini-blimps, and kids will line the stage’s massive staircases.

According to the show’s executive producer, Jay Schmalholz, the stage design was inspired by surprise, and will encourage both viewers and talent to “come play the Nickelodeon way.” Presenters can take a slide to the podium, which will be perched in the aforementioned blimp pool—a pool that, as Schmalholz notes, may hold some surprises.

This being the Kids’ Choice Awards stage, Schmalholz says “you never know when or where the slime is going to come from,” noting that presenters “know what they’re in for” when they sign up for the KCAs. He adds that when the KCAs team approaches the set building, “the first thing we do is figure out the plumbing and draining first, and build up from there.” With thousands of gallons of slime prepped to hit celebrities and fans over the course of the show, production can, as Schmalholz says, get more challenging.

Catch plenty more surprises at the Nickelodeon's 2018 Kids' Choice Awards, hosted by WWE superstar John Cena, airing live from the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California on Saturday March 24th at 8 P.M. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA and YTV in Canada, and on Nickelodeon channels around the world within hours of the live show!
