Actress Miranda Cosgrove (“iCarly”) and NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski will take on the slimiest roles of their lives as co-hosts of “Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2022.”
The show airs live on Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. PT from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.

It will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons and the Nick Jr. channel.
“The Kids’ Choice Awards is such a unique show with tons of energy, superstars and, of course, lots of slime,” Cosgrove said. “Nickelodeon has always been my family, and to co-host this iconic show alongside Gronk will be a blast!”
First-time nominees include Olivia Rodrigo, Saweetie, Elizabeth Olsen, Awkwafina, The Kid LaROI and Doja Cat, among others.
