Despite an online petition asking Nickelodeon to remove Chris and Rihanna as nominees at this year’s ceremony, which contained 2,166 signatures, Nickelodeon is standing by the nominees.
“Like all our KCA nominees, Chris Brown was nominated by kids several months ago based on his work as a performer, and the kids who vote will ultimately decide who wins in the category,” Nickelodeon execs said in statement released Tuesday.
Chris is nominated for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song for his hit single “Kiss Kiss.” He’ll also go up against Favorite Female Singer nominee Ri-Ri for her Favorite Song selection “Don’t Stop the Music.”
The 2009 Kids’ Choice Awards are scheduled for March 28. Do you think that they should drop Chris Brown as a nominee??
