LOS ANGELES, March 30 (UPI) -- U.S. child star Miley Cyrus, who performed and won two awards at Nickelodeon's 2008 annual Kids Choice Awards, said she just didn't want to get slimed.
While accepting an award for Favorite Female Singer, the "Hannah Montana" star asked not to be coated with Nickelodeon's trademark slime and ceremony officials allowed her to leave the stage unscathed, People magazine reported Saturday.
"I don't want to get slimed but I am glad to be here," Cyrus told those in attendance.
The actress/singer also won a Kids Choice award for Favorite TV Actress for her work on "Montana."
Meanwhile, the honor of being slimed went to actor Harrison Ford who was coated with the gooey liquid while presenting the award for Favorite Voice for an Animated Movie.
The event, which was hosted by comedian Jack Black, also included Cyrus performing her hit song "Girls Night Out," People said.
