The 2010 Kids' Choice Awards
Katy Perry and Rihanna
Before heading inside L.A.'s Pauley Pavilion-where she took her sliming like a big girl-Katy Perry (in The Blonds) was a social butterfly on the orange carpet at the 2010 Kids Choice Awards. "Is she here? I'm on it!" said Rihanna (in Christian Dior), before finding Perry for a pre-performance chat. Selena Gomez, The Jonas Brothers and The Twilight Saga's Nikki Reed were among the other fan favorites who caught up with Perry at the family-friendly awards show, where Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner and Miley Cyrus were among the big winners.

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith
Glee costars Lea Michele (in Zac Posen) and Cory Monteith talked about gearing up for new episodes while getting ready to go on a four-city tour in May. "It's a dream come true. I always wanted to tour as a drummer," Monteith said. "Playing live music is incredible! There are a lot of songs--it's going to be a long set!"
Victoria Justice and Taylor Lautner
Victoria Justice (in Malandrino) got to experience one of the perks of being Nickelodeon's newest star. Justice, whose sitcom Victorious premiered after the ceremony, got up close and personal with tween heartthrob Taylor Lautner, who took home the award for Favorite Movie Actor for his role in The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Tyra Banks and Selena Gomez
She took home the trophy for Favorite TV Actress, but Selena Gomez couldn't contain her excitement about being chosen to perform as part of this summer's Lillith Fair tour. "I've been working really hard to make music that makes people jump around and feel good," said Gomez (in Christian Cota). After mingling with Tyra Banks (in Daryl K), Gomez named the singer whose style she most admires. "I like how fun Katy Perry is," she gushed. "Everything she does is fun but serious at the same time."
"I've never been before," said Nikki Reed, of attending her very first KCA. "I love hanging around kids. I really relate to them." While she kept any plot secrets about the upcoming Eclipse to herself, Reed did divulge her wardrobe plans for the film's premiere tour. "I went to a fitting yesterday and I was told, 'This is what you’re wearing.' I’ve really been working on finding a consistent look or sense of style, but it's not working yet," said Reed (who looked perfectly put-together in a Cynthia Steffe dress). "I've been told I need to wear more color. I look a bit like a confetti ball today, but I love it!"
Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato
New couple Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato (in a Black Faith dress) went public with their romance by holding hands and staying close while on the orange carpet.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith took in the L.A. sunshine when they arrived with kids Jaden and Willow in tow. What label was the hot mama wearing? "I have no idea! I'm so sorry!" Pinkett Smith called out on her way inside.
Steve Carell and Tina Fey
Date Night costars Steve Carell and Tina Fey were good sports, pausing backstage after their onstage slime moment to give the experience two thumbs up.
Zoe Saldana and Robert Downey Jr.
Action stars Zoe Saldana (in Isabel Marant) and Robert Downey Jr. managed to stay slime-free when they presented the award for Favorite Movie to Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
