Last night’s Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards marked the 29th ever for the TV station, and boy did they outdo themselves. The show kept us on our toes the whole time, from the stellar live performances from DNCE (fronted by Joe Jonas rocking rainbow-hued hair), Silento, and Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa, to toilet-paper gun pranks and just the right amount of slime (tons). Thankfully, celebs’ Instagram accounts gave those of us without a ticket an all-access pass behind-the-scenes. See our favorite posts below.
Heidi Klum shared the cutest backstage pic (above) with all of the ALDC crew from Dance Moms. Wow, these girls have really grown up.
Grant Gustin sported a funny fake mustache in a snap with singer Meghan Trainor. Best part? Trainor called out that her dad was accidentally photobombing.
The lovely songstresses from Fifth Harmony took home the prize for Favorite Music Group, posing in an after-slime pic captioned: “Thanks for voting us favorite group…The experience was amazing! The slime was slimey.”
- Actress Debby Ryan flaunted the lace detailing on the back of her gorgeous cocktail dress—while signing autographs, natch.
- Debby Ryan and Sarah Hyland took a minute to say cheese with Cake Boss Buddy Valastro and family, who thanked the stars for digging into the frosted blimp cake he whipped up for the occasion (the baker took home the win for Favorite Cooking Show).
- Maddie Ziegler took to social media to congratulate Amy Poehler on her win for Best Animated Voice in Inside Out with a photo of the pair sitting side-by-side in the audience.
- And finally, Calum Worthy of Austin & Ally fame gave us all the feels with a shoutout to girlfriend Celesta Deastis.
