JoJo Siwa explained her absence from Sunday night’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards via Instagram.
The 18-year-old singer-dancer shared a video on Instagram explaining that she simply “wasn’t invited.”
“A lot of you have been asking me why I’m not at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards tonight, and the answer is very simple — I wasn’t invited,” Siwa said in the video. “I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t get an invite.”
Siwa explained that she didn’t want her fans to think she chose not to attend the awards show in the caption of her video.
“A lot of you have been asking why I’m not at the Nickelodeon Kid Choice Awards tonight, I don’t want anyone to think it was my choice not to go…. I simply didn’t get an invite:(” the caption read.
Representatives for Nickelodeon did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
Siwa was nominated for favorite social music star at the 2022 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio ended up winning the award.
“There is no reason that this music should not be included,” she said at the time. “Working for a company as a real human being treated as only a brand is fun until it’s not.”
