Miley Cyrus Wins Big at Nickelodeon’s 21st Annual Kids’ Choice Awards

March 31, 2008

Miley Cyrus took home trophies for favorite female singer and TV actress. The star of the hit Disney Channel program "Hannah Montana" rocked the crowd of teens and tweens in Los Angeles with a live performance.  As for the other winners, "Drake and Josh" won in the TV show category, while "American Idol" takes home the reality show honors.  Eddie Murphy won for his voice work in "Shrek The Third" and The Jonas Brothers were named the favorite musical group.

It was also a slime spectacle for the Nickelodeon children's television network.  At an outdoor event, several stars did battle with the network's trademark green slime.  Akon crashed a dune buggy into giant containers of the goo, Usher drenched a sumo wrestler with slime fired from a cannon and supermodel Heidi Klum, attached to a bungee cord and wearing a specially equipped "butt spike belt," flung herself into a wall covered with slime-filled balloons.

The show's host, Jack Black, announced that 88 million votes were cast this year, more than twice last year's record number of 40 million.  Read More
