She got slimed back at the Australian Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards back in 2007, so why Delta Goodrem would ever want to go back and host the damned event this year is completely beyond us. Alas, that’s exactly what’s happened with Delta Goodrem being confirmed as the host of the 2009 Australian Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, to be held in Melbourne next month. It looks like a hell of a lot of fun and Delta will be joined by plenty of her Sony Music stablemates who have been announced as guest performers on the night. Jessica Mauboy, Cassie Davis and Guy Sebastian have all been confirmed to play the event, which Delta says allows people to channel their inner child.
“I’m so thrilled that Nickelodeon has given me the honour of being this year’s host, because I know first hand that the Kids’ Choice Awards ROCK,” she says, “Previous hosts have set the bar high and although I can’t reveal just yet who my co-hosts will be, I can promise kids that this year the stage is going to be even bigger, better, and bursting with sneaky, slimy surprises… I can’t wait!”
The 2009 Australian Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards will be held at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena on Friday November 13 and broadcast nationally on the Nickelodeon Channel from 7pm.
