Big Time Rush's 'Elevate' music video: Watch a 60-second sneak peek here! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush’s latest music video — for “Elevate,” the title song from their latest album — will premiere on the cable network this Saturday at 9 p.m. during the airing of Big Time Special, a one-hour glimpse at the boys lives while touring. But you don’t have to wait until then to get a glimpse of the video: EW has an exclusive 60-second sneak peek at it today.

Fittingly, since it debuts during a tour special, the “Elevate” video is tour-based and incorporates performances, as well as fan footage, from while the four guys — Kendall Schmidt, 21; Logan Henderson, 22; James Maslow, 21; and Carlos Pena, 22 — were on the road. “We can’t wait for our fans to watch music video for ‘Elevate’ because it’s a collaboration between our fans and us!” Henderson tells EW. “When our fans tune into the music special they may catch a glimpse of themselves from one of our shows from the Better With U tour. “

Adds Schmidt: “There’s nothing more exciting to me then seeing all of our fans in this video — every show is so exciting — and I’m glad we can share a little piece with anyone who hasn’t seen BTR live yet!”

One Direction and Big Time Rush set to tour the US; Are boy bands officially back? -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO


Two weeks from today, Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush will launch its Better With U tour in Las Vegas, and starting one week after that (in Chicago on February 24), they will be joined by some very special guests: One Direction.

EW has obtained an exclusive photo of the two bands together and ready to tour the country. (Wishing all nine gents could be on your desktop? Click HERE for a full-size image.)

Are you by chance unfamiliar with One Direction? That’s likely to change. The British fivesome, constructed by Simon Cowell during The X-Factor UK‘s 2010 season, has already taken the motherland by storm — their first single “What Makes You Beautiful” became the most pre-ordered single in Sony Music’s history — but now they’re teaming up with Big Time Rush to launch a Stateside career.

Big Time Rush to release 'If I Ruled the World' music video today -- EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK VIDEO

The music video for boy band Big Time Rush’s latest single “If I Ruled the World” (featuring Iyaz) premieres on the interwebs later today, but before it makes its full, official premiere, EW has an exclusive, 45-second sneak peek at the forthcoming clip.

The poppy-delicious “World” — which was released to iTunes July 22 — is the first song from the group’s forthcoming and still-untitled album, which is currently set for release this November. The video is a compilation of the Nickelodeon-created group on stage in the U.S., the U.K., and Germany — perfect for the “World”-ly vibe of the song.

Currently, Big Time Rush is on tour throughout the U.S. and finishing the album. Watch the first 45 seconds of their new video for “If I Ruled the World” here:


Big Time Rush: Behind the scenes of the boy band's 'Boyfriend' video collaboration with Snoop Dogg -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Snoop-Dog-Big-Time-RushOn Saturday evening, amid a night of new episodes of Victorious and True Jackson VP, Big Time Rush — the fledgling boy-band created by Nickelodeon via the teen-bopping series of the same name — debuted their latest music video for their pop ditty “Boyfriend,” a collaboration with Snoop Dogg. (See EW’s First Look at the Snoop’s guest spot on the series back in November.) And you know what? The song is actually kinda totally infectious and fun — so much so that I can’t get it out of my head for days and days afterward. What I’m saying is: I’m a fan of Big Time Rush. Yes, yes, in the scheme of boy bands of all time, it remains to be seen if Big Time Rush will be remembered like the greats New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys and ‘NSYNC. (The real meter of success is: Will I be karaoking “Boyfriend” in 10 years like I karaoked “I Want It That Way” last Saturday night?) But, truly, you never know what Big Time Rush could become, right? Super stardom is possible. Heck, they’re working with Snoop, which is always a good sign.

So with that, I’m happy to bring you a little behind-the-scenes video from the “Boyfriend” music video shoot. In it, the cuties — that’d be Kendall, 20; James, 20; Carlos, 21; and Logan, 21—tell us how and why they made the music video, what it was like working with Snoop, and lots more. And beyond that — in true, teen-zine fandom craziness! — you’ll find some candid answers from the guys on a number of hot-hot-hot topics, ranging from their vices while recording and dream collaborators to what kind of music they listened to while growing up and what boy bands they love. Enjoy!
