Blake Shelton Is Hosting the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards

Yesterday, Blake Shelton teased he had some big news. As it turns out, it’s not pregnancy, it’s not marriage, and it’s not new music. It’s the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards.

Whether he’s dating Gwen Stefani for real or for the PR benefits, it’s boding very well for Shelton right now. The country music star and The Voice coach is following in Nick Jonas’ footsteps and hosting next year’s Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon.

Shelton broke the news this morning (Nov. 9) on the Today Show, telling Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, “I wanna do this thing with kids. It’s fun. I wanna get slimed.”

And let’s face it, watching him get slimed is oddly humorous:

The “Sangria” singer also discussed one ramification from his summertime divorce from Miranda Lambert (no, not his new romance with his Voice co-star Stefani): his weight loss (aka his “divorce diet“).
