Nick Kids' Choice Awards 2020: 7 Moments That Stuck Like Slime - Billboard
We might be in the middle of a pandemic but a little thing like a global health crisis can't stop the slime. On Saturday (May 2), the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards took place with Victoria Justice hosting a remote evening of blimps, winners and green goo. From showers to SpongeBob, these were the top seven moments of Nick Kids' Choice Awards: Celebrate Together. Couples Goals Shawn Mendes (winner of favorite male artist) showed up with Camila Cabello to accept the favorite music collaboration award for their duet "Señorita." "I've literally watched the Kids' Choice Awards for years and I wish I could get slimed!" Cabello said from quarantine with Mendes. "We're gonna make organic slime right now and slime ourselves." Share the recipe, CC. We're ready. Giving Back Host Victoria Justice announced that Nickelodeon was donating a million dollars to No Kid Hungry to help in these difficult times. Which is awesome -- and even better that she delivered the news holding a sweet lil pup. Respect. Frozen in the Shower Kristen Bell, decked out in costume Anna realness, appeared during the broadcast alongside dolls of various Frozen 2 characters. As did Josh Gad, who walked out of his bathroom in a pink shower cap to accept his blimp. As Olaf's human voice put it, "This is the closest I'm gonna get to air transportation right now." NBA? N-B-Yay! LeBron James, his beard in full effect, showed up to accept the award for favorite male sports star. "You guys are amazing, this has always been one of the best shows to be a part of. Stay safe and healthy," he said. Take a Bow JoJo Siwa, who hopped into the pool after winning a blimp, held nothing back during the KCAs, not just dousing herself in slime but brushing her teeth with the iconic Nickelodeon slime. You think that's nothing? Okay, do it yourself. SpongeBob Social-Distancing Pants The voices of SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star (Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke, respectively) appeared to accept the award for favorite animated series, and watching the real-life humans adopting their cartoon voices on camera was a total delight. "We're in this together!" said Kenny in character, before adding, "But Squidward is in this alone." A Grande Entrance Victoria Justice shouted out former Victorious castmate Ariana Grande, who won the favorite female music star award. "I'm very appreciative. Nickelodeon will always hold such a tremendous place in my heart not just for Victorious and Sam and Cat and the years I spent working with them. But also just for SpongeBob, you know? I'm always very honored." Agreed. Truly, we are all lucky to exist in the same timeline as SpongeBob SquarePants.

NCT Dream Set New Album 'Reload,' Scrap Age-Based System With Return of Mark - Billboard
Yo, Dream! Fans of NCT Dream, the youth-oriented K-pop act can look forward to a new album, Reload, from the act on April 29, as well as some exciting changes to their lineup following its release. On Monday night (April 13, April 14 in South Korea), the teams company SM Entertainment announced that NCT Dreams new album will be the last with the current lineup as Dream will shift away from its current, age-based rotational system. Reload will feature the current lineup of members Jeno, Jaemin, Chenle, Renjun, Jisung, and Haechan, but after its release they will move away from the age-determined format that Dream is based around. To put it simply, the teen-aged unit of the larger NCT boy band is growing up. Previously, NCT Dream was operating with a graduation-based system, so that when members reached the age of adulthood in South Korea, 19 internationally, they would move on from it. This led to Mark, who also is part of other NCT groups as well as SuperM, age out at the end of 2018. But this year will see the age-based system come to a halt, and Mark return to NCT Dream, bringing it back to its seven-member original lineup, known to fans and the band as "7Dream." Following the release of Reload at the end of this month, NCT Dream will become a fluid-style team that SM Entertainment says is similar to what's associated with another NCT unit, NCT U, and members will be able to participate in both their own projects as well as partake in releases under the NCT Dream name. According to a post shared on the fan-board Lysn, the NCT Dream members who are not currently active in other NCT groups -- Renjun, Jaemin, Jisung, Chenle, and Jeno -- will become members of new NCT teams in the future. NCT Dream put out their first single "Chewing Gum" in 2016. They most recently released their third EP We Boom in July, but put out their last song as a seven-member team in 2018, with the Christmastime "Candle Light" serving as Mark's not-quite-farewell track.
