The 34th Annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards were held on March 13, 2021, with Kenan Thompson hosting. Tom Kenny also returned as the announcer for the first time since the 2013 show. The show took place at the Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport in Los Angeles, CA, with a virtual audience "Fan Wall" due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was the first time since 2003 that the show was held at the Barker Hangar.

The show featured live voting segments, such as a vote for Favorite Baby, which was won by Baby Shark, who appeared in the show to accept the award. Other live votes included an opportunity for a family watching at home to win a blimp for Favorite KCA Watch Party, which the Gittens family won.

This year, the show took Nickelodeon fans on the journey of a lifetime. Nickelodeon's Orange Blimp left the Barker Hangar to take the virtual audience to places like Outer Space, Bikini Bottom, and more, thanks to the power of XR technology. Among the festivities were two musical performances by Justin Bieber with Migos member Quavo, and a successful Guinness World Record attempt at the biggest simultaneous virtual sliming ever.
