Kids will rock 'n roll, and hip-hop too, on Nickelodeon's dynamic new series, Dance on Sunset, hosted by Quddus Philippe. The dance/variety show with a tween twist will feature a mix of today's hottest musical acts, free-style dance competitions and the Nick 6, a troupe of young dancers from around the country who, led by ace choreographer Tony Testa, will perform and teach kids how to freestyle like Justin, shake it like [KWLINK 1709]Shakira, and get down like Fergie.

Some of the huge stars slated to perform include Ashlee Simpson, Sean Kingston, Akon with Colbie, and Menudo. Among the fantastic guest-stars on tap are Janet Jackson, Omarion, Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) and The Naked Brothers Band.

It was worse than it intended to be.
