The host for the 2013 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards was announced today, and it’s someone young and fresh-faced who has his finger right on the pulse of Young America, I’m talking of course about Josh Duhamel. Wait, what? From Entertainment Weekly:

The star of Transformers: Dark of the Moon on Wednesday was named host of Nickelodeon’s 26th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which will be broadcast from the Galen Center in Los Angeles on March 23. Duhamel, who starred on the NBC drama Las Vegas, has already been inducted into Nickelodeon’s Arm Fart Hall of Fame and showered in green goo.

Yeah, no, we already knew that, but it doesn’t answer the question: what? Obviously, Mr. Duhamel’s placement in Nickelodeon’s ARM FART HALL OF FAME does speak to a certain jeunesse, but I’m not even sure ADULTS know who Josh Duhamel is, much less our nation’s children. He was on the NBC drama Las Vegas? Oh perfect! He’s basically the next Justin Bieber. I’m not saying that I know who SHOULD host the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. I’m as out of touch as, well, Josh Duhamel. They should probably just be hosted by an iPhone 5? Oh well. Maybe Josh Duhamel actually is the most obvious and teenerific choice. Maybe I am the one who doesn’t know anything, AS USUAL. Either way, JustJared asks the tough questions: “ARE YOU EXCITED to see Josh Duhamel host the 2013 Kids Choice Awards???”
