NICKELODEON – Sunday 11 December, 6pm
Big Time Rush’s Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan are spreading Christmas cheer with a new TV movie, Big Time Christmas, premiering Sunday December 11 at 6pm exclusively on Nickelodeon. The hour-long special features three musical performances by Big Time Rush: an exclusive duet with Miranda Cosgrove of the contemporary classic “All I Want for Christmas is You;” an animated music video with Snoop Dogg featuring an original song “Let’s Stay In Our PJs (All Christmas Long); and an all-new holiday song “Beautiful Christmas.”
In “Big Time Christmas,” the guys are excited to head back to Minnesota for the holidays, but hours before their flight, Griffin tells them they have to stay in Los Angeles to record a three-song holiday EP – and two of the songs have to be with celebrities. Racing against time, they help Gustavo write the first song, “Beautiful Christmas.” After watching a commercial for Miranda Cosgrove’s holiday TV special, the boys and Gustavo decide to sneak into Miranda’s taping and convince her to duet with them on the Mariah Carey holiday classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
After leaving the studio, Gustavo gets hit by Snoop Dogg’s limo while crossing the street. Snoop feels so badly about the accident that he offers to record the third song with the boys – a new Yardsquirrels (a novelty band that Gustavo had a hit with in the ’90s) song, “Let’s Stay In Our PJs (All Christmas Long).” This episode also features a guest appearance by Fabio as himself.
Big Time Rush is a live action comedy about music and brotherhood, which chronicles the finding, making and breaking of a music group called Big Time Rush. It stars real-life singers and BTR group members Carlos, Logan, James and Kendall, who are signed to Sony Music and have hit singles available on iTunes.
