First Lady Michelle Obama is confirmed to make an appearance at the 25th Annual Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards this coming weekend. She's on hand to present Big Help Award to Taylor Swift in recognition of the country/pop singer's extensive philanthropic endeavors.

Swift has done many charitable works in the past years. She supports Make-A-Wish Foundation, St. Jude Medical Center, Habitat for Humanity, The Red Cross and The Salvation Army among other good causes. At the rehearsal of her "Speak Now" tour last year, she raised funds for tornado victims.

"Taylor's dedication to helping others has encouraged her fan base to do the same, and this is the very core of what The Big Help is, inspiring others through action," said Marva Smalls, Executive Vice President, Public Affairs and Chief of Staff, Nickelodeon Group.

The Big Help Award was first presented in 2009 to Leonardo DiCaprio. Michelle Obama was a recipient for 2010, being followed by Justin Timberlake in 2011.

2012 KCAs itself will be hosted by Will Smith and air live from USC's Galen Center in Los Angeles on March 31. Katy Perry leads the overall nominations by grabbing three nods. She is vying for Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song, and Favorite Voice From an Animated Movie.

In the Favorite Female Artist, Katy is facing off Swift, Lady GaGa and Selena Gomez. In the Favorite song, she's once again competing against the "Mean" crooner and the "Born This Way" hitmaker, in addition to battling LMFAO.
