Man Crush Monday: James Maslow on “Dancing With the Stars”

After a great weekend, we always get a serious case of the Mondays.  At least we have “Dancing With the Stars” to look forward to!  And by “Dancing With the Stars” we mean “James Maslow.”

We always knew how talented and hilarious James is, thanks to his part in Big Time Rush, but he’s proved week after week on DWTS that he has the talent, passion and drive (not to mention the voting power of the fan girls) to bring home the mirrorball trophy.  He’s consistently improved and raised the bar week after week, even scoring a rare perfect score for his contemporary dance to “Let it Go” last week.

Check out some of our favorite Maslow dances below.

The Tango:

The Jive:

The Salsa:

And let’s not forget where it all started:  Big Time Rush, whom we credit for bringing boy bands back in fashion, are one of the few LEGIT boy bands out there.   As in they actually dance.  Check out some of our favorite moves below.  (BTR keep saying “it ain’t over” … we’re hoping for just one more tour?)

Be sure to follow James on Twitter & tune into “Dancing With the Stars” tonight at 8 on ABC!

Cody Simpson Releases “Surfboard” Music Video!

One of our songs of the summer is guaranteed to be the catchy single, “Surfboard” by Cody Simpson. We love the retro intro that melts into the r&b chorus. The video is out just in time for summer and we can’t be more excited! Watch the official video below!

It’s a shame that Cody Simpson got sent home this week on DWTS! He was just too good for the competition.   We were hoping for a final dance-off between former tour mates James Maslow & Cody Simpson!

We can’t wait to see Cody this summer at the BLI Summer Jam at Jones Beach!  Tickets are on sale now!

James Maslow and Cody Simpson Join Dancing With the Stars Season 18

As we’ve said before, we generally stay away from reality TV shows.  Unless of course they star a current or former boy band member.  In which case, we are ALL IN.

We’d been expecting Cody Simpson to join the cast of Dancing With the Stars, since he kindly asked his fans if they thought it would be a good idea back in December.

Cody Simpson DWTS offer tweets

But we had no idea that one of our favorite boy band members, James Maslow of Big Time Rush, would be joining the cast this season.  He was so good at keeping it secret we literally screamed when it was announced on Good Morning America this morning!!

Watch the announcement clip below.

We haven’t been invested in DWTS since the season of Lance Bass and Cody Linley, but you can bet we will be tuning in and voting for James every week.  (And Cody.  But mostly James).  We can’t wait for his dance moves, the glittery costumes he’ll have to wear, and of course the infamous James Maslow sass.  We’re hoping James will be around for a while, so apologies in advance for all of the vote spamming we’ll be doing.

Also joining the cast?  Winnie Cooper and DJ Tanner!

The 18th season of Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 17th at 8pm on ABC.

Carlos Pena Releases First Solo Single

Carlos released his first solo single…but sadly, it’s not “Carlos ALONE”.
The song is called “Electrico” and is already in the Top 10 on the iTunes Latin charts! Check out the single artwork above from Carlos’ Instagram.  We think it’s great that our little Carlitos is branching into the Latin charts!! He has such a knack for performing and hopefully this is a taste of the future ahead of him.

Get the song on iTunes and check out the lyric translation by @BTRTourUpdater  HERE!

We hope “Logalicious” is the next solo piece to come from Big Time Rush…but most of all we want a full album and a full tour of James’s “Break Out Dreams” project.

Say Hello To The PenaVegas!

Carlos Pena, 24, and Alexa Vega, 25, are officially off the market and married! The two said “I do” at the Grand Velas Resort in Mexico.

Carlexa (as they’re known to the fans) shared an intimate ceremony by the beach on January 4th, after a four-month engagement. The two shared photos from the wedding with US Weekly, on stands now!
Alexa looked stunning in an Eduardo Lucero dress. Carlos chose his three fellow band mates, Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, and James Maslow, as his best men.

Well wishes for the newly weds have been rolling in from every corner of the world on various social media accounts. Here’s one more, CONGRATS CARLEXA!

Carlos Pena & Alexa Vega Are Getting Married!

Big Time Rush member Carlos Pena and Alexa Vega from Spy Kids are set to be married tomorrow, January 4, 2014 at a ceremony in Mexico.

The two have been dropping hints about the wedding for months but never formally announced the date until earlier today.

Alexa’s sisters, Krizia and Makenzie, are also said to be present for the nuptials as well as Carlos’ brothers Javi and Antonio, as well as BTR band mates Logan Henderson and James Maslow, who is also a groomsman.  We hope Kendall Schmidt will be attending too, as we need to see him in a tuxedo.

Congrats to the happy couple!  Looking forward to photos from the happy day!

Big Time Rush Announce World Tour 2014

Our favorite boy band, Big Time Rush, recently announced they will be heading out on a World Tour in 2014.   Dates have been announced so far in Texas and South America, with more dates to come.

We’ve been lucky to see BTR a few times, and their live show does not disappoint.  From their non-Nick approved dance moves and strong vocals, to their fun personalities on stage (and have we mentioned they are CUTE!), a BTR show is one big dance party.  The guys like to get up close and personal with their fans (even inviting a girl or four to join them on stage), so don’t miss your chance to see them!  VIP packages are being offered as well, and if you have the opportunity to meet the guys, do!  They are always super sweet and kind to their fans. (and CUTE!)
