Big Time Rush Talks The Show, The Summer, And Their Hometown Sweepstakes – Exclusive Video Interview


BSCkids recently got the opportunity to chat with group Big Time Rush for an exclusive interview. The group spoke with us about their television series of the same name, what their fans can do to have a fantastic summer, as well as their exciting Big Time Rush Hometown Sweepstakes.

Big Time Rush consists of Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, James Maslow, and Carlos Pena, Jr. The group was signed a record deal with Nick Records simultaneously with the television series and eventually signed to Columbia/Epic Label Group.  Big Time Rush’s debut album, BTR became a success around the world. The album entered the Billboard 200 at three. Their debut outside of the series, “Boyfriend” peaked at number seventy-two on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). With their continuing success of the series, the group released their second sophomore album Elevate. The album debuted at number twelve, but was certified gold in Mexico, becoming their second-consecutive certified album in that country. Elevate also achieved gold and Platinum status in both Venezuela and Ecuador, & has sold over 2 million copies worldwide as of 2013. The group promoted the album with their tours, Better With U Tour and Big Time Summer Tour, which had supporting acts including One Direction and Cody Simpson.
