Blake Shelton to Open Kids' Choice Awards with Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas ... and Chewbacca
The star will be in good company at the slime-fest on Saturday
On Thursday, Shelton, 39, hung out with his new furry friend backstage at the “Fabulous” Forum in L.A. as they rehearsed for Nickelodeon’s annual awards show.
While checking out the “artist canvas wall,” Shelton stumbles upon some familiar signatures. “I don’t really count Maroon 5, but there’s some other cool ones in here,” he says while perusing the wall.
“Oh look, there’s No Doubt. I like those guys – one of them, a lot,” he jokes about his girlfriend Gwen Stefani before making his own mark on the wall.
Aside from hosting the show, the Voice coach could also be going home with a prize. The country singer is nominated for favorite male singer alongside Drake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Jonas and the Weeknd.
“I’ve been on countless stages throughout my life, but none have promised the madness, excitement and endless slime as Nick’s Kids’ Choice Awards, which is undoubtedly the ultimate party for kids,” Shelton previously told PEOPLE. “There is only one team here, and it’s Team Kids’ Choice so bring it on Nickelodeon!”
The Kids’ Choice Awards airs live Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
