The star-studded event will feature musical performances by DNCE, Charlie Puth with Wiz Khalifa, and Silento, plus appearances by celebrities including Robert Downey Jr., Amy Poehler, Megan Fox, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Evans, Meghan Trainor, Fifth Harmony, John Stamos, Heidi Klum, Cameron Dallas, Keke Palmer, Jason Sudeikis, Anthony Anderson, Zendaya, Chloe Bennet, Bethany Mota, Buddy Valastro, Dove Cameron, Grant Gustin, Josh Gad, Laura Marano, Will Arnett and cast members from Dance Moms, plus stars of Nick's hit series Game Shakers (Kel Mitchell, Benjamin Flores Jr., Cree Cicchino, Madisyn Shipman, Thomas Kuc), The Thundermans (Jack Griffo, Kira Kosarin) and Henry Danger (Jace Norman).
Immediately following the 2016 Kids' Choice Awards, Nickelodeon will debut its newest live-action comedy School of Rock at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Based on the feature film, the half-hour series follows a group of overachieving prep school students who band together and learn to rock out when they meet their new, unconventional substitute teacher Dewey Finn. Throughout the school year, these middle-school classmates find themselves navigating relationships, discovering their unknown talents and learning lessons on loyalty and friendships.
Saturday night kicks off with a brand-new episode of Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants, featuring comedy legend Betty White, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT). In "Mall Girl Pearl," Pearl gets a job to be cool like her friends, but the only place that's hiring is Grandma's Apron, the lamest store at the mall owned and operated by the elderly Beatrice (voiced by Betty White). When Pearl's friends including Nocturna (voiced by Aubrey Plaza), a brooding teenage Goth girl who works at Scorched Coral, make fun of Pearl's new job, Beatrice proves that age is nothing but a number.
