Fans of JoJo Siwa were no doubt surprised that she wasn’t in attendance at Saturday’s Kid’s Choice Awards.
Siwa took to social media to reveal why she was a no-show: she wasn’t invited.
“A lot of you have been asking me why I wasn’t at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards tonight, and the answer is very simple. I wasn’t invited,” she explained.

Siwa not receiving an invitation seems unusual given how closely the singer has been associated with Nickelodeon in recent years.
However, the lack of invitation could be related to Siwa’s apparent spat with Nickelodeon over her D.R.E.A.M. tour; back in September, she took to Twitter to complain that Nickelodeon had forbidden her from performing the six new songs she debuted in her live-action Nickelodeon musical, “The J Team”, on her tour.
In a followup tweet — also deleted — she added, “Working for a company as a real human being treated as only a brand is fun until it’s not.”
