Gearing up for its spring broadcast, the nominees for the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards were announced earlier this afternoon (February 24).

Leading the pack is lovely pop sensation Katy Perry, along with the cast of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and British boy band One Direction.

There are also a few new nomination categories this year including Favorite Villain, Favorite Funny Star and Most Enthusiastic Athlete.

After the nods hit the web, Adam Levine told Us Weekly that he and his band Maroon 5 were thrilled to receive recognition. "We are so excited to be nominated for Kids' Choice Favorite Group this year. We were all bitten by the music bug at a very young age so it's always great to be recognized by the kids. Thanks to all of our fans!"

The KCAs will be hosted by Mark Wahlberg and air live on Nickelodeon March 29.
