Outkast star ANDRE 3000 got Saturday's (03APR04) Kids Choice Awards off to a flying start by floating in high above the audience.

Dressed as a blonde, pigtailed ninja, Andre made an impressive entrance for his show-opening rendition of hit HEY YA.

Andre's bandmate Big Boi also performed at the awards show, with an army of dancers and kids all dressed in white suits and dresses.

Outkast were the big winners at this year's event, claiming the Favourite Music Group and Favourite Song prizes.

Meanwhile, event hosts Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz kicked off the awards in style by performing as part of a cheerleading team.

And TV star George Lopez prompted an embarrassing silence when he poked fun at namesake Jennifer Lopez over her love split just before they handed out the night's first award.

J.LO joked she got a lot of George's mail by mistake, to which quick-thinking Lopez replied, "Yeah, me too - BEN (AFFLECK) wants you to call him back."
