London, 29th March 2015 6:40pm –  Global pop phenomenon, One Direction and the group’s legions of fans were recognised at 28th Annual Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. The group took home two blimps, winning Favourite Music Group in the international vote as well as UK Favourite Music Act. Devoted fans of the group, the Directioners, were also recognised as they won UK Favourite Fan Family.

Other UK winners at this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards included Rixton (UK Favourite Breakthrough) and Alexis Sánchez (UK Favourite Football Star). Zoella (Zoe Sugg) repeated her victory of last year, winning UK Favourite Vlogger for the second year in a row. In the new categories for the year, The Diamond Mine Cart, took the blimp for UK Favourite Tipster while pet of Joey Essex, Prince Essex, proved himself ‘the cat’s meow,’ by being voted UK Favourite Celebrity Animal.  Recognising their outstanding contribution to entertainment, Ant and Dec were awarded the honorary UK TV Legends Award. Fans that missed the premiere broadcast of the Awards this evening will have another chance to catch the slime and star-filled Awards Show when it encores at 6:30pm on Monday, 30th March. The Awards will air through the week on Nickelodeon and, for the very first time, on Channel 5 on Sunday, 5th April.

Hosted by recording artist/actor and kids’ pick for Favourite Male Singer Nick Jonas, the awards were broadcast from Los Angeles’ legendary “Fabulous” Forum, where kids celebrated their favourites from the worlds of film, music, television and more.  Kids from around the world cast more than 500 million votes, a record-breaking tally.

Multi-talented host Jonas opened the show with a stunning performance of his Billboard Top 10 smash, “Chains” and radio hit, “Jealous.”  Backed by tween-metal trio Unlocking the Truth, his theatrical set also featured a celeb-filled video montage, 3D elements and aerialists.  Hip-hop phenomenon Iggy Azalea was joined by Academy Award- and Grammy-winner Jennifer Hudson onstage in a bold and dynamic rendition of their hit “Trouble.”  In the epic Awards finale, Aussie pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer’s powerful performance of “What I Like About You” literally blew out the slime-filled speakers, flooding the stage with thousands of gallons of slime.

This year’s Kids’ Choice Awards proved to be as messy as ever: from Diversity being caught in a slime shower in the Awards introduction to Jennifer Lopez presenting Jonas with his award and a surprise sliming. Backstage Chris Pratt and the cast of Nickelodeon show Henry Danger took each other on in a pie fight, while Ant and Dec were coated in the green goo by UK hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely presented them with Nickelodeon’s first ever Kids’ Choice Award UK TV Legends honorary Award.

The star-studded telecast featured additional celebrity participants, including: Jamie Foxx, Emma Stone, Liam Hemsworth, Chris Rock, Zendaya, Debby Ryan, Chloe Bennet, Fifth Harmony, Joe Jonas, Nick Cannon, Shawn Mendes, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Kevin James, Mo’ne Davis, Skylar Diggins, Ross Lynch, Quvenzhané Wallis, Meghan Trainor, Jennette McCurdy plus cast members from The Haunted Hathaways, SpongeBob SquarePants, and many others.

Kids and families paid tribute to their favourites by casting across seven UK specific and additional international categories online, on The Nick App and via Twitter using the hashtag #KCA.
