Get those slime goggles ready for action, because Nickelodeon has unveiled their nominees for the upcoming Kids’ Choice Awards on March 24. Professional Wrestler John Cena will host this year’s televised award ceremony for the second year in a row, which will recognize some of the most popular names in mainstream television, movies and of course, music.

The music portion of the show is broken down into six categories, including “Favorite Music Group,” “Favorite Male/Female Artist[s],” “Favorite Song,” “Favorite Breakout Artist” and “Favorite Global Music Star.” The latter category was added to the annual awards show in 2017, and hopes to help expose international artists including Black Coffee (Africa), K-Pop group BTS (Asia), Lorde (Australia/New Zealand), Maluma (South America), the Vamps (U.K.) and Zara Larsson (Europe) to young fans here in North America. The above mentioned artists from around the globe will be taking on Miss Taylor Swift, who is the nominee representing the U.S. and is also up for awards in “Favorite Song” and “Favorite Female Artist” categories.

This year’s “Favorite Breakout Artist” list also has plenty of heavy hitters from mainstream pop arena, including newly solo Camila Cabello and Harry Styles, 2017’s rookie of the year Cardi B, Khalid, Noah Cyrus and Alessia Cara, who recently took home the 2018 Grammy in the same category.

Unlike most award shows where some mysterious organization behind the curtain decides on who will take home the trophies, the Kids’ Choice Awards still allows the actual fans to have a say in who’ll win those coveted orange blimps. Voting for all the categories will begin starting next week on March 5, and can be accessed by visiting the event’s official website.
