The other JoBros are going to be very jealous! Disney boy bander-turned-solo hunk Nick Jonas will be hosting the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on March 28, sources reveal to Us Weekly exclusively. The official announcement is expected later today, Feb. 11 — but Jonas has already taken to social media to hint at his upcoming gig.
Jonas, 22, who will be joining Iggy Azalea on her Great Escape Tour this summer, shared a video yesterday via Instagram in which he sings and strums the Nickelodeon theme song, captioned with the awards show’s date “3.28.15.”
Olivia Culpo’s buff boyfriend also sent out several tweets on Feb. 11 suggesting his role as host. “What do me and Cameron Diaz have in common… ?” he wrote, followed by “What do me and Will Smith have in common?” Finally, he tweeted “Have any ideas what me and the last couple people I mentioned have in common? How about Jack Black and I?” All the mentioned stars, of course, have hosted the slime-tastic awards show (now in it’s 28th year) in the past.
Jonas is no stranger to the Kids’ Choice Awards stage, either: In addition to two nominations for Favorite TV Actor in 2010 and 2011, the “Jealous” singer was nominated alongside his brothers, Kevin and Joe, four years in a row. The Jonas Brothers took home the coveted orange blimp in both 2008 and 2009 for Favorite Music Group.
Last year’s host Josh Duhamel left some big shoes to fill. Fergie’s hubby donned a slew of silly costumes, including a “California Gurls”-inspired Katy Perry costume. We can’t wait to see what Jonas has in store.
