Kids’ Choice Award Nominations 2013: One Direction, Taylor Swift + More Earn Nods
Taylor Swift and One Direction are the leading musical nominees for the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards. In fact, Swift and her latest ex, 1D’s Harry Styles, are both nominated in the same category. This award ceremony could get awkward!
For Favorite Song, One Direction’s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ is up against Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ the song she performed at the Grammys when she threw in an apparent Styles diss. Also nominated are Carly Rae Jepsen‘s ‘Call Me Maybe’ and Psy‘s ‘Gangnam Style.’
1D are also the leading contenders for Favorite Musical Group. Swift has two nods in the music categories and another for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for her role in ‘The Lorax.’ She competes against movie stars Chris Rock, Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler for that one.
Elsewhere, Justin Bieber scored a nom for Favorite Male Singer, while Adele and Katy Perry lead the Favorite Female Singer contenders. ‘American Idol‘ and ‘The Voice‘ are shortlisted for Favorite Reality Show. And the Favorite Villain category, which normally features movie villains, includes ‘X Factor‘ judge Simon Cowell.
