In what promises to be a coast-to-coast virtual slime-fest, the 2021 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards will be handed out Saturday, with Justin Bieber the top overall nominee with five nods.

Actor/comedian Kenan Thompson of “Saturday Night Live” will host the telecast, which Nickelodeon officials say will take viewers “to outer space, Bikini Bottom and right into celebrities’ homes using XR technology.”

Bieber is among the nominees for favorite male artist, along with Drake, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Harry Styles and The Weeknd. He’s also nominated for his “Holy” collaboration with Chance the Rapper and his “Lonely” collab with benny blanco, while also up for favorite song for “Yummy.”

Bieber is also scheduled to perform during the show, which will also feature remarks from Vice President Kamala Harris. She will appear as part of a Generation Change presentation, highlighting “kids’ strength and courage to create a better world for future generations.”

The spooky Netflix hit “Stranger Things” has four nominations, including favorite family TV show and acting nods for Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard.

Millie Bobby Brown is also nominated for favorite movie actress for her work in “Enola Holmes.” Also vying for that award are Gal Gadot for “Wonder Woman 1984,” Anne Hathaway for “The Witches,” Vanessa Hudgens for “The Princess Switch: Switched Again,” Yifei Liu for “Mulan” and Melissa McCarthy for “Superintelligence.”

Competing for favorite movie actor are Jim Carrey for “Sonic the Hedgehog,” Robert Downey Jr. for “Dolittle,” Will Ferrell for “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga,” Lin-Manuel Miranda for “Hamilton,” Chris Pine for “Wonder Woman” and Adam Sandler for “Hubie Halloween.”

Among those set to appear on the broadcast are Kim Kardashian, BTS, Tiffany Haddish, Terry Crews, Tyler Perry, Wolfhard, Brown, Gadot, Downey, Sofia Vergara, Anthony Anderson and Jennifer Garner.
