This year's festivities kicked off with Henry Danger star JACE NORMAN transporting himself from the set of Henry Danger to the orange carpet, where he ran into KEL MITCHELL, JOJO SIWA, and Black-ish cast members MILES BROWN and MARSAI MARTIN, before spotting Cena.

During the show, musical performers MACHINE GUN KELLY and CAMILA CABELLO took the KCA stage to perform their platinum-selling number-one single, “Bad Things,” against the backdrop of a lighting and projection spectacle. International music sensation LITTLE MIX performed a medley of their hit singles, “Touch" and “Shout Out to My Ex,” right before taking home the blimp for Favourite Global Music Star.
The 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards proved to be a mega slime fest: from DEMI LOVATO being slime-soaked by a Smurfy set piece; to CHRIS PRATT getting a surprise sliming in the Kids’ Choice control room; to KEVIN HART getting doused with the coveted green goo after his triple win for Favourite Villain, Most Wanted Pet and BFFs; to the Power Rangers (BECKY G., NAOMI SCOTT, RJ CYLER, LUDI LIN, DACRE MONTGOMERY) sliming the audience; Cena and NICK CANNON competing in a hip-hop dance battle and Cena receiving the ultimate green surprise while elevated above the stage at the end of the show.
