If you're trying to make it in show biz, is there a better person to have in your corner than Ryan Seacrest?
When thirteen-year-old YouTube phenom Rebecca Black vaulted to fame (or infamy) with her viral hit "Friday," oh those mere weeks ago, Seacrest took her under his wing and set her up with a manager. And now, Hollywood Reporter has learned, he's handpicked her to cover the orange carpet at Saturday night's Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles.
The award show will be hosted by Jack Black and will honor the year's top books, movies, TV shows, and actors favored by the younger set. The ubiquitous Justin Bieber is among the honorees, of course. Will Rebecca be able to fulfill her dream of singing a duet with him?
The award show will air on Friday, April 8 at 5pm on Nickelodeon, and in the meantime, you can check out Rebecca's coverage of the event on Seacrest's website. To those who assumed Rebecca's success would be a flash in the pan, take note: she's not going anywhere just yet. After all, she just won the Nobel Peace Prize.
