First Lady to Honor Taylor at Kids’ Choice Awards Show

It will be Mrs. Obama’s first trip to the annual Nickelodeon network awards show—but will she be slimed?

And the accolades keep coming for Taylor Swift.

Yes, she has half a dozen Grammys and top trophies from the American Music Awards, Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music. Now, Taylor is getting the Big Help Award from Nickelodeon kids network for her charity work—and First Lady Michelle Obama is going to present it.

The award will be part of the Kids' Choice Awards, to be hosted by Will Smith on Saturday night (March 31) in L.A., and Nickelodeon will air them live starting at 8 p.m. ET (except for you folks on the West Coast, who will get a delayed broadcast at 8 p.m. PT).

Taylor is no stranger to that awards show, having won two "blimp" awards in 2010, the same year that the First Lady herself received the Big Help Award for her initiatives to get kids in better shape.

Nickelodeon execs cited Taylor's work for tornado and flood survivors in giving her the award.
