WHAT does it take to con­nect with younger view­ers th­ese days? At last week­end’s Kids’ Choice Awards in Cal­i­for­nia, so­cial me­dia proved to be the key to a mil­len­nial’s heart.

When host and coun­try singer Blake Shel­ton was not dressed in a uni­corn cos­tume, he took the time to share some #Throw­back­Thurs­day pho­tos on stage.

Shel­ton proved that some­one who used to rock a pair of geeky glasses and mul­let back in school could also be the man to win the heart of pop singer Gwen Stefani. It does get bet­ter, kids.

Pre­sen­ter Ellen DeGeneres made a Snapchat video fea­tur­ing her­self and the crowd, say­ing: “We’re go­ing to cre­ate the big­gest Snapchat. I’ll Snapchat you ( the au­di­ence) while you Snapchat me”.

And what’s a Kids’ Choice Awards with­out some green slime?

Mem­bers of Fifth Har­mony ( who won Favourite Mu­sic Group) didn’t see the slime com­ing and ran around scream­ing on stage. They should have been like Ja­son Sudeikis and Josh Gad who em­braced the green gooey stuff.

Those who were seated at the au­di­to­rium weren’t safe ei­ther. Fuller House and Grand­fa­thered ac­tor John Sta­mos got a bucketful while en­joy­ing the show. News­flash: he still looks good. Oh, and Cameron Dal­las, who was voted Favourite Vi­ral In­ter­net Star, got a taste of the green stuff too. Pop­u­lar­ity comes with a price!

A fight broke out on stage be­tween Cap­tain Amer­ica and Iron Man, but re­lax, it was just a thumb war be­tween Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. Luck­ily, the fight ended pre­ma­turely, oth­er­wise, some­one’s thumb could get hurt real bad.
