Singapore, February 22, 2021 – Grammy® Award-winning global superstar Justin Bieber has been tapped as the headline performer for this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021. A celebration of fan-favorite stars across the worlds of film, television, music, sports and more, Bieber will hit the “KCA” main stage for epic, show-stopping performances of his chart-topping hits “Intentions,” joined by Quavo, and his latest single “Anyone.”
Hosted by actor, comedian and Saturday Night Live legend Kenan Thompson, Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021 will air in Asia on Wednesday, March 17, at 4.50 p.m (SG), 4pm (WIB) and 5pm (MY, PH). In a first for the awards show, Nickelodeon’s Orange Blimp will leave the event venue to take fans on a virtual ride around the world and beyond.
“The Kids’ Choice Awards was my first awards show and returning to share my new music is a full-circle moment,” said Bieber. “Although the show may look different this year, the KCA’s are always a ton of fun and there will definitely be no shortage of slime!”
With over a dozen Kids’ Choice Awards wins, Bieber leads the pack with five nominations this year: three in the category of “Favorite Music Collaboration” for his songs “Holy” featuring Chance the Rapper, “Lonely” with benny blanco, and “Stuck with U” with Ariana Grande; one for “Favorite Song” for “Yummy;” and one for “Favorite Male Artist.”
After closing out 2020 with three smash singles—“Holy” with Chance the Rapper, “Lonely” with benny blanco, and “Monster” with Shawn Mendes—Bieber rang in the new year with a brand-new single “Anyone,” and his return to the live stage in a blow-out NYE livestreamed concert.
