Santa Monica, Calif. -- April 2, 2002 -- Double platinum recording artist
Pink will kick off Nickelodeon's 15th Annual Kids' Choice Awards with a
performance of her mega-hit, 'Get The Party Started,' with additional
performances throughout the show by superstar musical group Smash Mouth and
international R&B sensation Usher. The multi-platinum selling artists will
join host Rosie O'Donnell and a star-studded lineup of presenters to perform
their biggest hits to a live audience at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica,
CA and millions of viewers at home on Saturday, April 20 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT
(tape delay PT).

Illustrating the exploding popularity of the Kids' Choice Awards in the
entertainment community, a roster of today's brightest stars from film,

and landing in a 4000 gallon tank of Nickelodeon's signature green slime.

Why is that song the official anthem of music awards shows all of a sudden? I
know Nick has played Pink's video before, but I wouldn't think she would want
to be on Nickelodeon...

>Among those scheduled to appear are Matt Damon

!!!

>Beyonce

Poor the rest of Destiny's Child...

>The Rock

Didn't Nick get in trouble with the PTC over inviting wrestlers?

>Jennifer Love Hewitt

Because her career is all fine and dandy.

>Hilary Duff
>Amanda Bynes

...DEATHMATCH!!!

It'll be so tragic if he were to be killed on children's television. I'm sure
he practiced this hundreds of times and Nick's got paramedics on board, tho.

Lemme guess. Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Sarah Michelle Gellar,
and...whoever else kicks butt.

There was a time when you could tell who the winners would be by
looking at the list of presenters, as the losers didn't bother to show
up (and this isn't like the Oscars or Emmys - the winners know in
advance). However, this year, as an example, the only "Favorite
Television Actress" NOT scheduled to be there is Jennifer Aniston.

And there must be a mistake...it lists Alexa Vega by name rather than
referring to her as just "one of the Spy Kids"; I suppose next they'll
be including an actual "non-celebtiry" voiceover performer

My guess? Duff will present, either Bynes or Hart will win, the other
will either be slimed or receive a surprise award of some design.
Hart deserves the Hall of Fame by now, I'd wager.
