Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande & More Female Artists Lead 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards Music Nominations

By Michael Jun 4, 2024

Women have dominated the pop scene in recent years, so it’s fitting that they dominate the nominations for favorite song at the 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards too, filling six of the eight slots, Billboard can exclusively reveal. Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat, Beyoncé, Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande are vying for the award, along with Luke Combs and Justin Timberlake.


Beyoncé, Grande and Eilish have each won in this category twice in the past. If any of them wins again this year, they will tie Harry Styles as the only three-time winner in the history of the category (which dates to 1988). Styles won twice with One Direction and once on his own, with “As It Was” at last year’s show.

In other nomination news, America’s kids still consider Justin Timberlake to be slime-worthy. The pop veteran received nominations for favorite male artist (a category he won in 2007 and 2014), favorite song for “Selfish” and, with *NSYNC, favorite music group (a category the boy band won in 1999).

Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2024 will be simulcast live on the East Coast on Saturday, July 13, at 8 p.m. ET/PT across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons, the Nick Jr. channel, TV Land, CMT and MTV2.  The show will be hosted by SpongeBob SquarePants (voiced by Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke). This marks the first time that the show has been hosted by virtual characters.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants, which first aired on Nickelodeon as a sneak peek after the Kids’ Choice Awards on May 1, 1999, and officially premiered July 17 of that year. The 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards will re-create the undersea home of Bikini Bottom, the setting of SpongeBob SquarePants.

The Kids’ Choice Awards, complete with green slime and Nick’s signature orange blimp award, has long been a top attraction for young viewers. (O.G. fans of the show who were, say, 8 when the show debuted in 1987 are now 45. Time marches on, even when you’re being slimed.)

The show will be held at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion for the first time since 2010 and the 11th time overall.

Beginning Monday (June 3), fans in the U.S. can cast their votes across 33 categories on the official Kids’ Choice Awards website, International markets will also open voting today, including additional regional categories.

Here are the nominees in five music categories. (The full list of nominations will be announced at 9:15 a.m. ET. This post will be updated with the full nominations list at that time.)
