Host of the 26th annual KCA show

In case you’ve never seen the KCA’s, getting slimed is a term for being covered in green goo that Nickelodeon first used back in the 1990s. Different challenge shows like “Slime Time Live” and “Double Dare” used the green goo to cover the contestants each episode.

Swift has been nominated in the same category as ex, Harry Styles, the One Direction heartthrob. The One Direciton star and country cutie will compete under the “Favorite Song” category. Fans are going wild over the former flirtation between the two stars and are interested in seeing how this category will work out.

Voting is now open on Nick.com in 26 different categories.

Fun Fact: According to Tv.com, in 2006, more than 25 million kids cast their ballots.
