Nickelodeon typically has the Kid's Choice Awards around this time, but thanks to self-quarantine protocols to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, that isn't really possible at this time. The awards show has been postponed as a result, but in its place, Nickelodeon has revealed a special #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall. It will be an hour-long special hosted by Kristen Bell (The Good Place, Frozen 2) that seeks to answer kids' questions and concerns about the coronavirus as well as give tips and insights from medical experts on how to stay healthy and safe. The special will connect Bell and all guests via video from their homes, and it will feature a special performance by Alicia Keys.
“It’s so important to remember that we are all in this together, and our kids and loved ones need outlets to help them process and understand what’s going on and, most importantly, to still feel connected. I hope kids and families come away from this special feeling a little more comfortable and that they enjoy some much-needed moments of humor during this difficult time.”
Guests will include Dr. Nadine Burke Harris (California Surgeon General) and Dr. Vivek H. Murthy (former U.S. Surgeon General), as well as Charli D’Amelio, Josh Gad, Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, and Ciara and Russell Wilson.
Fans will be able to check out the special across all platforms, as #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall will simulcast Nickelodeon, TeenNick, and Nicktoons as well as on Nick On Demand, YouTube, Nick Pluto TV, and the Nick App.
