The 2021 edition of Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards is finally here, with Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson as host. The ceremony is being held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, making the most of XR technology. It will feature performances from Justin Bieber, who was set to perform during last year's ceremony. This marks the show's return to a March date after last year's show was in May.
The Kids' Choice Awards starts at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT on Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, TeenNick, and Nick Jr. These are all ViacomCBS networks that require cable or satellite subscriptions to watch. Nickelodeon is also available to stream on many Internet TV platforms, including Sling TV, Fubo TV, Hulu + Live TV, AT&T TV, and Philo.

Bieber is the most-nominated star of the night and will take the stage to perform "Anyone" and "Intentions" with Quavo. He was nominated for Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Song ("Yummy"), and was featured in three songs nominated for Favorite Music Collaboration, "Holy" with Chance the Rapper," "Lonely" with Benny Blanco, and "Stuck With U" with Ariana Grande. Bieber's wife, model Hailey Baldwin, is set to present Bieber's performance.
"I'm excited! It feels good to get out and get dressed up and be back in this kind of environment, to be presenting. It's exciting," Baldwin told PEOPLE this week. "It's cool. Obviously, we're both grown up, we've grown up watching the Kids' Choice Awards and I think to be here and be married and do it together is really fun."
