Our Two Favorite Big Time Rush Singers Just Had The Sweetest Reunion
Huffington Post - 23 days
It’s hard to believe that Nickelodeon’s hit series “Big Time Rush” has been off the air since 2013. Since the show’s finale and the boy band’s subsequent breakup, the former bandmates have been quite busy working on solo projects. Luckily, the guys still have time to catch up and hang out. Kendall Schmidt met up with Carlos PenaVega on Wednesday to meet PenaVega’s two-month-old son, Ocean. PenaVega welcomed his son with “Spy Kids” actress Alexa PenaVega in December. Schmidt’s playdate with baby Ocean was simply adorable. A photo posted by Kendall Schmidt (@kendallschmidt) on Feb 1, 2017 at 4:25pm PST ”’Uncle Kendall’ teaching little @oceankingpenavega how to raise an eyebrow...he’ll get it,” Schmidt captioned the photo.  Schmidt and PenaVega also spent some solid guy time flying drones and listening to Schmidt’s new music.  A photo posted by Carlos PenaVega (@therealcarlospena) on Feb 2, 2017 at 12:22am PST “An epic ...

Big Time Rush Respond To Heartbreaking, Viral Santa Note From Eight-Year-Old (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When eight-year-old Ryan wrote an early Christmas list for Santa, he only wanted two things. The first, for the kids at his school to stop picking on his twin sister, Amber. The second, for Amber's favorite band, Big Time Rush, to come to her birthday party to make her happy. The heartbreaking note he wrote on behalf of his sister, shared on Facebook by their mother, was picked up by CNN earlier this week, and it ended up reaching the eyes of the boy band. Big Time Rush were in New York this week for Nickelodeon's WorldWide Day of Play. With the help of Good Morning America, they flew Ryan and Amber in from North Carolina to join them. It was the first time the kids had ever been in an airport. The family was also given VIP passes to their concert. The guys of BTR -- Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, James Maslow and Carlos Pena -- stopped by HuffPost Live on Thursday and talked about what it was like to meet the young siblings. "Ryan is so exceptional. He literally wrote that ...

Carlos Pena, Kendall Schmidt,James Maslow and Logan Henderson.( Photo by Joseph Cultice/Weiss Artists. All Rights Reserved) Attention Rushers! As I'm sure you all know, the guys of Big Time Rush have been getting a lot of buzz lately from the recent kick off of their summer tour to the highly anticipated release of their new album. These guys seem to never stop or slow down, which is why the title 24/Seven remains perfect for their third full-length album. "The inspiration behind the album was the fans, and all of our experiences and fun that we have had, but most importantly we wanted to make an album that we were proud of, and that we hoped the fans would love" said Kendall Schmidt in a recent interview I had with the band. The album, which includes many songs that were written by the guys themselves, preserves the invigorating and irresistible pop energy millions their fans have come to know and love all while adding a personal touch like never before.

Cimorelli Prove They REALLY Love America With Their 'Made In America' Video
MTV News - over 3 years
All-sister group Cimorelli -- Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren, and Dani Cimorelli -- might as well be called "The Cover Queens." (Or something way catchier.) We've seen the girls cover Taylor Swift's "22," One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful," Demi Lovato's "Heart Attack,"  and most recently, Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors" featuring an assist from Big Time Rush's James Maslow. But now, the gals are switching gears to focus on some original tunes, namely "Made In America," the single off their EP of the same name. Directed by Erik White, Cimorelli's first official video features the girls participating in some classic all-American activities, like having a BBQ, flirting with adorable boys, playing with water guns, synchronized dancing on their front lawn... Wait, scratch that last part. And per usual, the ladies are wearing subtly coordinated outfits (so crucial) while werquing and twerking their six-part harmony. Yeah, there's definitely a little sumthin' sumthin' ...

TV's boy band aims to conquer music world
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
When Logan Henderson moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and music, he didn't think he would ever become a member of a group like Big Time Rush — a "boy band," teen pop group, or whatever description one might use. Growing up in Texas, he had done plenty of acting in theater and had also been a singer, but in rock bands. His favorite groups included Aerosmith, the Clash, Radiohead and Jet. "I never pictured myself being in a boy band. I always envisioned doing solo projects and things that were obviously a little different than pop," Henderson said in a phone interview. But when he got wind of auditions for a new TV show to be based around a boy band, and that companies like Columbia Records and Nickelodeon were involved, Henderson changed his tune. "I decided, ‘This is such a cool opportunity,' and I was still young," he said. "I really just worked my butt off. It was one of those things. (I thought,) ‘I'm not sure exactly how it's going to be, but I'm going to make the bes ...

The Boys are Back in Town
Stony Brook Press - almost 5 years
The high-pitched screams echo off the walls of Radio City Music Hall. Bright beams of light illuminate the dark stage, followed by explosions and a line of flames that materialize from the floor. Four silhouettes appear behind a rising screen as the sold-out concert hall bursts with shrieks and camera flashes. But this act isn’t Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber—it’s Big Time Rush, the band with a Nickelodeon show of the same name. Boy bands such as Big Time Rush are becoming sensations in the American music industry again. After the popularity of New Kids on the Block in the 1980s and ’N Sync and Backstreet Boys in the ’90s and early 2000s, the allure of male vocal groups vanished the same time Justin Timberlake said “Bye, Bye, Bye” to his band and went solo. Such bands have tried to make it big in the U.S. since then, but they typically saw mediocre record sales and little to no success. The term “boy band” typically refers to a group of young, eye-candy-status-worthy men ...
