Nickelodeon’s WebHeads With Carlos PenaVega Premieres Tonight!

Hosted by Big Time Rush member, Carlos PenaVega, Webheads is a new kind of gameshow that tests your knowledge of Internet trivia and viral videos!

We always thought Logan would be the game show host (Breakout Dreams anyone?) but we’re glad that now Carlos is will be appearing on our TVs every week!  An adorable ball of energy, Carlos is perfect for a game show host!  We caught him hosting an Apple in-store event last summer for GoDance, and he seemed just as home as he does on stage.

Carlos also revealed to Ryan Seacrest today that Big Time Rush is meeting in a few weeks to possibly plan a fall tour … needless to say we need to make this happen!  The band has been spending this year working on their own projects:  Kendall Schmidt released a single, “Parallel,” and  is touring with band Heffron Drive; James Maslow won hearts across America as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,”  and Logan Henderson has…wait has anyone heard from Logan?!

Watch the show preview below and don’t forget to tune in tonight at 6PM on Nickelodeon!  Carlos will be live-tweeting the premieres on both the East & West Coasts, so get your questions ready!  Follow Carlos on Twitter to join in!

The Friday Five: Legit Modern Day Boy Bands

As we’ve written before, there seems to be a lot of confusion in the media as to who is a boy band and who’s not.  We prefer to use boy band in the original sense of the word, like the originals New Edition and New Kids on the Block. You can even consult the dictionary: a boy band is a group of young men who sing in harmonies and DANCE!   Here are some of our favorites!

1. Big Time Rush – “Boyfriend”
Big Time Rush doesn’t get enough credit for bringing boy bands back into fashion. Before their show premiered in2009 we had all been living in a sad boy band less world for years. True BSB have been going strong for over 20 years, but we hadn’t seen any NEW boy bands since the golden era in the early 2000s, when a new band seemed to emerge every week.   BTR has the moves, looks and harmonies of a classic boy band. Now that they are in the “I’m just going into space / I’m just going to record this solo project, probably no one will hear it” phase of their band, we are hoping that they reunite for at least one more tour.  They keep saying it ain’t over!  We love their mashup of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” with their song of the same name.  Complete with a hat dance!

2. Titanium – “Unarmed”
AKA New Zealand’s first boy band!  The deprived nation held a rigorous competition, which included a boy band boot camp, to find the 6 members of the band.  They’ve even written songs with BTR members Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson. There were rumors of a joint Big Time Rush & Titanium tour  for a while, and we’d just like to put in a formal request to make that happen.

3. Midnight Red – “Hell Yeah”
They call themselves America’s boy band, and with good reason.   They have harmonies that melt you, and have done solid covers like “Diamonds” by Rihanna and even NKOTB’s “Step by Step!”  They got the ultimate boy band seal of approval when NKOTBSB recruited them to open for their tour, making Midnight Red officially a part of the boy band posse.   And we’re sure they wouldn’t back down to a dance off with BSB! (Can we have this? Thanks!)

4. Phase V – “Not a Bad Thing”
One of the newest boy bands on the block, is the self described Urban-Pop boy band. They’ve posted covers of “Not a Band Thing” by Justin Timberlake, which we’ve always said was meant for a 5 part harmony, and “Drop It” by Trevor Jackson.  We hear they’re working on an *NSYNC cover as we speak and we can’t wait!   We love that these guys dance and stay true to the boy band genre and are looking forward to hearing more from them!

5. To Be One – “Please Don’t Go Girl”
The Jordan Knight approved boy band sampled NKOTB’s hit “Please Don’t Go Girl” in their original song of the same name.   Jordan said it best when he told MTV “finally a boy band that dances!  And the hook is darn good too!”

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.

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!)
