The 22nd Annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards was held on March 28, 2009, on the Nell and John Wooden Court of Pauley Pavilion. Dwayne Johnson hosted this awards show which lasted for more than one and half hours. Voting commenced on March 2, 2009. Performers and presenters have been listed at the official site. The Jonas Brothers sang their song, Lovebug, but changed the line "catch this lovebug again" to "catch this slime time again". By the end of the program, they were named the "slime gods". This year marks the last time that the Nickelodeon Orange Blimp was used on the Kids' Choice Awards logo for 4 years. The Nickelodeon Blimp was not used on the Kids' Choice Awards logo again until 2013. This is the last Kids' Choice Awards to air featuring the former Nickelodeon logo before it was changed later in 2009.

According to Nickelodeon, the show was broadcast in more than "228 million households across Nickelodeon's 50 channels in Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Latin America." It had 7.7 million viewers. More votes than ever were cast for this year’s KCAs. A record 91.1 million votes were cast on Nickelodeon websites.

Prior to the live telecast, Lily Collins, Pick Boy and JJ hosted the "orange carpet", featuring celebrity interviews and a live performance by Miranda Cosgrove outside Pauley Pavilion.
