Orange carpet, slime, orange blimps and athletes all make up one of the slimiest events of the year. The Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards! A night where kids and teens get to vote for their favorite athletes in different categories and be entertained with lots of epic sports battles between their favs and take guesses on who’s getting slimed.

This year the show was hosted by Houston Rockets Chris Paul and the Legend award went to Professional Racecar driver Danica Patrick who if you don’t know was the first female winner in IndyCar Series history. The show took place at a Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport.
