Kids’ Choice Awards postponed due to coronavirus pandemic

Justin Bieber was set to perform at Nickelodeon’s 2020 Kids’ Choice Awards, however its been postponed.

The ‘Yummy’ hitmaker earlier explained he “can’t wait” to take to the stage on March 22 at the Forum in Inglewood, California, to perform his new song ‘Intentions’ with Migos star Quavo.

Nickelodeon has postponed the Kids’ Choice Awards due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The network has pushed back its annual ceremony to ensure “the safety and well-being” of everyone involved as the global pandemic has seen over 1,200 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the US.”

In a statement, a spokesperson said: “The Kids’ Choice Awards scheduled for March 22, 2020, in Los Angeles is being postponed in consideration of the safety and well-being of every person involved with the show, which is our top priority.”

“We will have further information about a new date in the future.”

Speaking to PEOPLE, Justin shared why he was so eager to return to the Kids’ Choice Awards. He said: “Early in my career, I got to perform one of my first singles on the Kids’ Choice Awards stage, and I can’t wait to do it again and share my new music for the kids and with the kids. Get that slime ready!”

This year’s event was to be hosted by Chance the Rapper, 26, who shared he was over the moon with the presenting gig because all he did as a kid was watch Nickelodeon.

He explained: “It’s a huge honor and a big deal. I’d watch Nickelodeon — it was channel 54 here — it was all I watched, and I watched crazy, super amazing people host my whole life. To be able to be in that world is like a fantasy.”

Meanwhile, Justin’s decision to perform at the Kids’ Choice Awards comes after he was forced to downsize some venues on his tour due to the Coronavirus. But unfortunately, the virus has also had the kids’ awards show canceled.

Some of the venues announced the changes on social media, with Bridgestone Arena in Nashville sharing: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Justin Bieber concert at Nissan Stadium is being relocated to Bridgestone Arena. If you have purchased tickets already, you will receive an email from Ticketmaster with your new tickets. @justinbieber #TheChangesTour.”

So far, dates in Glendale Arizona, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Columbus Ohio, Indianapolis, Washington DC, and Detroit have all been affected as earlier reported on The Sauce.

TMZ reported at the time that the 26-year-old singer’s tour ticket sales had been strong before news of the Coronavirus outbreak broke.

According to the website: “Prior to the news, ticket sales were hugely successful but then slowed in smaller markets. Justin’s team made the decision to relocate several tour stops to guarantee they could fill seats instead of performing to a half-empty stadium.”
