Group Chat with Jayden and Brent is a video chat rundown of the week’s latest hot topics, taken directly from what kids love and are talking about across social media.

In Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered, hosted by actor and comedian Jay Pharoah, panelists Lex Lumpkin and Gabrielle Nevaeh Green from All That, along with America’s Got Talent winner Darci Lynne, must guess the identities of virtually disguised celebrity guests, who are hidden behind an animated 3D filter and voice changer. The panel works to decipher the mystery through rounds of Q&A, wacky trivia and hilarious game competitions. Mystery guests who have appeared to date include Chance the Rapper, David Dobrik, Iain Armitage, Liza Koshy, Gabriel Iglesias, Asher Angel and Candance Cameron Bure.
