JT Helps Slimey Awards Clean Up in the Ratings

Can you believe Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards have been around for 20 years? What's more, this year's ceremony, held Saturday night in Los Angeles, earned the highest ratings in KCA history, Reuters reports.

According to the Nielsen numbers, the program averaged more than 6.1 million viewers, a 3 percent increase over last year. But the increase in voting was even crazier: A total of 40.8 million votes were cast this year — via the Internet, mobile phones, and other methods — which is a whopping 54 percent more than in 2006.

I'm sure Nick owes a lot of this unprecedented enthusiasm to Justin Timberlake, who was an incredibly charismatic host, willing both to show off his talent and poke fun at himself. (He was forced to give up his Best Burp title.)

In case you didn't get enough of him at the Kids Choice Awards, you can still catch JT on tour: He just added 15 more dates to his FutureSex/LoveShow. To see the new tour dates,

I have a question about this best burp thing. I thought that he actually gave it up last year to Hugh Jackman? Because he met Cameron the year he won it from her, and then they dated for two years, so there had to have been another burper in there, and I think it was Hugh Jackman. Why do I care about this?
