Bad luck follows 'Big Time Rush' star Ciara Bravo in Nickelodeon's 'Jinxed' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Jinxed, Nickelodeon’s latest original TV movie, Big Time Rush star Ciara Bravo faces a villain that just won’t go away: bad luck. Bravo plays Meg Murphy, a girl whose family is cursed with being unlucky forever. In other words, if something can go wrong, it will go wrong for her and her family.

And in an exclusive clip from the film, Meg explains exactly what that entails: a drinking fountain that works just fine for others malfunctions for her, her classmates fear her every move, and even a cheerleading tryout goes awry because of a flying shoe. To the happily un-cursed, accidents like these are simply accidents. For Meg, her entire life revolves around such mishaps, and she’s on a mission to end them.

Check out the clip below. Jinxed airs Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon. READ FULL STORY

Fifth Harmony, Cody Simpson celebrate launch of Nick Radio

Nickelodeon celebrated the launch of its online music streaming platform Nick Radio Thursday night with stars, screaming fans, and — what else? — slime.

Hosted by the station’s DJs and Big Time Rush actress Ciara Bravo, the event, which was also streamed online, drew fans (and their parents) to New York’s iHeartRadio Theater for performances from girl band Fifth Harmony and singer Cody Simpson. Both artists have been mainstays on the station’s playlist since it began streaming Sept. 30.

For Simpson, the event meant an opportunity to showcase his acoustic set, crooning five songs including his 2010 debut single “iYiYi,” as well as tracks from his album Surfer’s Paradise.

“[Nick Radio] is a really great outlet for me to be at and share my music with my fans,” said the 16-year-old singer. “I’ve been in a really different mindset…. I’ll be turning 17 at the top of the year, and I’m really looking to make something that’s gonna surprise people, that’s a little more timeless. It’s the album I’ve been waiting to create. I want to branch off into my own sound and show people my voice.” READ FULL STORY

Big Time Rush prepare for big-time finale -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP


Nickelodeon’s Rush is almost over.

In tonight’s special series finale, the boys of BTR will find themselves partying with stars including Nick Cannon, Alexa Vega, Austin Mahone, Karmin, Mindless Behavior and Fabio at the “Tween Choice Awards.” (Meta alert!) The fly in the ointment: Someone’s also plotting to brainwash the show’s audience. Now Kendall, James, Carlos, and Logan must find a way to thwart the villain — and look good doing it.

Can the guys save the show and still make their dreams come true? Tune in to “Big Time Dreams” tonight at 8pm to find out — and get a taste of what’s to come in this exclusive clip.

Big Time Rush premiere video for '24/seven' -- VIDEO

Warning: Listening to the title track off Big Time Rush’s new album, 24/seven, might make you want to hit the road or go to the beach.

So it’s no surprise that the peppy official video, off the band’s third album, has a similar feel. In the behind-the-scenes-esque mostly black-and-white montage, Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, James Maslow, and Carlos Pena, Jr. dance around à la the silly video for One Direction’s “Kiss You.” There are also a few perfectly-in-sync boy-band dance moves that would make even the Backstreet Boys totally jealous.

Embrace your inner tween (or get ready to hear this coming from your tween’s room) and watch below: READ FULL STORY

Victoria Justice to guest on 'Big Time Rush' -- EXCLUSIVE

Nickelodeon’s bringing some Justice to Big Time Rush.

EW has learned that Victoria Justice, former star of Victorious, will appear as herself on an installment of Nickelodeon’s boy band sitcom this spring. The episode, titled “Big Time Tour Bus,” is notable for another reason as well — it’ll be directed by band member Carlos Pena, who plays jokester Carlos on the show.

In “Big Time Tour Bus,” the boys find themselves caught in traffic while traveling to their next gig. It’s up to Justice to keep the concert’s audience entertained as the guys try to figure out what to do next.

Art, naturally, imitates life; as announced last week, Justice will be joining Big Time Rush on their upcoming Summer Break Tour. Concerts begin in LA June 21st; tickets will go on sale this Saturday, April 6.

Cher Lloyd to guest star on 'Big Time Rush'-EXCLUSIVE

The guys from Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush will get a real rush when singer Cher Lloyd guest stars in an episode of the boy-band show taping the week of Jan. 27 and airing this spring. In it, James (James Maslow), desperate for attention, and Katie (Ciara Bravo) create a lie that he and Cher Lloyd are releasing a hot new duet and video.

“We have been a huge fan of Cher Lloyd’s work since X-Factor. We are so excited to have her guest starring on BTR. She has a charming, sweet, and funny personality, which is a perfect fit for our show,” says BTR’s Logan Henderson. This will be the show’s fourth season, scheduled for 13 episodes.

Public perception seems to be the theme for the whole of the episode: In addition to Lloyd’s storyline, the band makes headlines when Lucy (Malese Jow), Kendall’s ex-girlfriend, pulls a sort of Taylor Swift and releases an album about being dumped by Kendall (Kendall Knight) and it becomes a huge hit. Meanwhile Carlos (Carlos Garcia) gets bad press when he attempts to swat a bee but it looks like he’s hitting old ladies.
