Once again, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice awards came, saw … and slimed.
Hollywood's finest gathered at USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles on Saturday to celebrate the online-voting of young adults across the country, who picked their favorites in entertainment and beyond. Even though Justin Bieber and One Direction weren’t in the house, a good time was still had by all at the 26th annual event hosted by Josh Duhamel. Some of our favorite moments from this year's show were ...

Josh Duhamel’s Dancing: Being the eye candy that he is, we wouldn't normally encourage Josh to move around as he's best gazed at while standing still. But who knew the actor was such a good dancer?

Duhamel showed off some "Pitbull" moves in a pre-taped opening, and wasn't afraid to shake it all over the stage in various getups: a wrestler's onesie, suits and sneakers, and Spongebob Squarepants' necktie and flood pants. He even dared to don a bandage dress and sport a baby bump in tribute to his pregnant wife Fergie.
We love a guy who can get down while being goofy!
The Acceptance Speeches: Kids’ Choice isn't necessarily a Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, but we found the speeches at this year’s event covered ground from sweet to sassy.
When Victoria Justice and her castmates from "Victorious" took home honors for Favorite TV show, Justice teared up over the win thanking the fans for all their votes. How sweet!
Of course, Kristen Stewart, who sat in the audience with Katy Perry and Selena Gomez, brought the sass. KStew recalled a shirt she used to wear as a tot that read "Kick Butt First, Take Names Later" while accepting the blimp for Favorite Female Buttkicker (she also nabbed the trophy for Favorite Movie Actress), and added that the KCAs helped her realize her "kindergarten self."
The Slime: Obviously, the green goo is a staple of any KCAs, and this year its victims were NBA star Dwight Howard, Sandra Bullock, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried, and "The Hunger Games’” Josh Hutcherson.
The Obligatory Johnny Depp Appearance: Dutiful and sufficiently layered, Depp made a surprise appearance to claim Male Butt Kicker of the Year honors for his vampire flick "Dark Shadows."
In his oversized hat, countless bracelets, and big smile, Depp worked his usual look while telling the kids, "Thank you for being you, you're the future."
Viral Moment: Clad in what appeared to be an oversized juice box costume, Duhamel put his spin on the “Harlem Shake” Internet sensation by getting the entire audience to participate in the animated dance number.
Fergie should be proud.
