Last weekend, the lovely lot over at Nickelodeon invited us along to the UK's first ever SLIMEFEST. It's been an annual thing in Australia for a few years now; but they thought it was probably about time they brought the fun over here to Blackpool with the likes of Conor Maynard and The Tide. Couldn't really say no when some of our faves were involved, could we?
So we packed our bags and toddled up north to the dead fancy Empress Ballroom to see loads of popstars and presenter-types get covered in green slime (and consume our own body weight in Blackpool rock.) Oh, we bloody love our jobs sometimes.
Wanna know why y'all should watch SLIMEFEST at 6pm on Nickelodeon this Saturday (September 9th, innit)? WELL:
1. Shirtless members of The Tide.
Do we even need to continue with the other six reasons?
2. It's in bloody Blackpool of all places.
Arguably the seaside town that inspired the Eiffel Tower. Surely? No?
3. The Tide properly faceplanting the stage.
Seriously, you've gotta see it.
4. Diversity are more hyperactive than a seven-year-old on the Sour Skittles.
Those moves, though.
5. Conor Maynard's there.
Who doesn't love a bit of Maynard, really?
6. Roxi off of Roxxsaurus and Roman Kemp off of Capital and The X Factor get all the backstage goss.
7. The slime, obviously.
The clue's in the name. The finale of SLIMEFEST sees things get messy af and we wouldn't have it any other way. Wanna see Roman Kemp shooting his load? OH GAHD WE CAN'T EVEN MAKE JOKES LIKE THIS.
Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST will air on Nickelodeon on Friday, September 9th at 6pm.
