This year, kids not only pick the winners, but they get to help host Will Smith pull off the greatest slime event in KCA history.  Through a brand-new iPad, iPhone and iPod app, and the KCA website, kids need to find slime hidden throughout the photo galleries, news, and videos.  If kids collect enough slime, Will Smith will pull off the biggest slime event ever in this year’s show.  Aided by weekly mission videos featuring Jennette McCurdy, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress, kids will have the chance to earn digital rewards and move up the slime operative ranks. 

Leading up to the show, the apps and website will also feature daily KCA news, video updates, photo galleries and videos from past KCAs, behind the scenes video of this year’s preparations, and dedicated information pages on the host and nominees.  In addition, the entire Orange Carpet pre-show will be streamed live through the apps and website, followed by a live backstage companion stream during the main show.
