In their first-ever live performances at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, multi-talented global superstars Pitbull, featuring Grammy award-winning superstar vocalist Christina Aguilera and Ke$ha ignite the stage on Saturday, March 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Corus Entertainment’s Nickelodeon (Canada). Pitbull remains unstoppable as he is set to perform his explosive hit Feel This Moment, featuring Aguilera, while Ke$ha will captivate the kids with her Billboard Top 10 smash C’Mon. Live from USC’s Galen Center, both artists join previously announced host Josh Duhamel at the 26th annual event where kids rule and honour their favourites from the worlds of film, music sports and television.
“Can’t wait to play the Kids’ Choice Awards for the first time,” said Pitbull. “Look forward for fans to also see the first performance of Feel This Moment with Christina Aguilera. It’s gonna be fun, DALE!!!”
“Kids’ Choice is always one of the most fun awards shows of the year,” said Ke$ha. “I can’t wait to come out and party with all of my ANIMALS!!!”
Pitbull has risen to become a global superstar as both a recording and performing artist. The Miami-native recently added to a long-and-growing list of hits with his first #1, Give Me Everything. At the same time, his world tour sold out concerts in Latin America Canada and Europe, before bringing the party to the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull’s Don’t Stop The Party is a global radio and video hit and is also featured on his new album Global Warming. It’s the highly anticipated follow-up to Planet Pit, which earned critical acclaim and enjoyed massive commercial success with sales of more than 1.7 million albums and 19 million singles. Don’t Stop The Party comes on the heels of Pitbull’s two million-selling single Back In Time, the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy Men In Black 3. Look for Pitbull’s new single Feel This Moment featuring Christina Aguilera to be another global smash.
