Will Smith Announced as Host of the 2012 Kids Choice Awards


The Fresh Prince is in the house! The Kids Choice Awards are about to get “jiggy” this year. Ok, we’ll stop with the bad puns, but Will Smith has been announced as the host of this year’s 25th Annual KCAs, succeeding Jack Black.

“How better to celebrate 25 years of Kids’ Choice Awards than with the biggest movie star in the world?” said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon Group and an Executive Producer of the show. “Will has enough KCA blimps at home to fill a room, having long been one of kids’ favorites. He’s a larger than life presence who knows how to play big and we’re excited he’ll be taking the stage for the biggest, loudest, messiest spectacle in the show’s 25-year history.”

“The Kids’ Choice Awards are always the year’s liveliest, slimiest and most outrageous party for kids and teens,” said Will Smith, “I’m honored they wanted me to host this year so I can have a front row seat to take part in the fun.”

The Kids Choice Awards will air Saturday, March 31, at 8:00 p.m.

Are you excited? Who do you hope gets slimed?
