In an effort to offer age-appropriate answers to your children’s many, many questions, Nickelodeon is swapping out its canceled Kids’ Choice Awards (initially scheduled for Sunday, March 29) for #KidsTogether: The Nickelodeon Town Hall, a special hosted by Kristen Bell and designed provide “a kid’s-eye view of life today amid COVID-19.”

According to the network, the hour-long special will “directly address kids’ questions and concerns, include tips and insights from medical experts on ways to be healthy, and give first-person accounts from kids and families around the country who are social distancing and making changes to their everyday lives and relationships.” Bell is joined by celebrity guests like Alicia Keys, who will be performing, TikToker Charli D’Amelio, Josh Gad, Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, Ciara, and Russell Wilson.
