Hey TWIST readers,
TWIST hung out with all the stars at Nickelodeon's eighth annual Worldwide Day of Play this weekend in Washington D.C.! Nick puts on the event every year to encourage kids and their families to get outside and play! Stars from Victorious, Big Time Rush, iCarly and other Nick shows, along with pro athletes like Chris Paul and LeBron James walked the red carpet and stared their fitness secrets. Leon Thomas from Victorious told us, "I just think that getting out and doing some dancing is always really good. It's a perfect way to work every bone in your body!" Kendall Schmidt from Big Time Rush shared, "If you have a dog, take that dog for a walk!" After the red carpet, the Big Time Rush guys put on a rockin' concert, which was followed by tons of games and activities like ping pong, baseball and rock climbing. There was even a huge obstacle course, where stars like Victoria Justice, Keke Palmer, Matt Bennett, Nathan Kress and Jennette McCurdy ran in inflatable bubbles, through tires, up a ladder and, in typical Nickelodeon fashion, through a huge pool of slime! Check out BTR's performance of "Boyfriend" below, and click after the jump for more exclusive photos and videos!
