Who needs Luke Bryan when Blake Shelton’s got Grumpy Cat?

Blake may not be co-hosting this year’s ACM Awards with Luke, but the country megastar is taking the reins of the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2016.

And he’s gearing up for the slim-filled occasion in a new interview with the world’s most famous—and grumpiest—feline.

“Am I excited to host this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards? I couldn’t be more excited! No per-rrr-suasion needed here,” Blake says with a laugh. “See what I did there?”

Grumpy Cat is far from impressed with the “Boys ‘Round Here” singer’s one-liners—even when he name drops “what all the kids are into,” including “Bad Blood” and Hunger Games.

Watch Blake host the Kids’ Choice Awards March 12 at 8/7c on Nickelodeon.
