Tubeathon is a star-studded digital telethon and variety show with musical performances, live entertainment and celebrity appearances and served as an early kick-off to the American Red Cross’ 2016 Giving Day, a one-day fundraising effort designed to increase public emergency preparedness awareness and raise funds for the Red Cross and its mission to help families who have been affected by disasters such as home fires.
Along with Dustin Belt, the two try to generate rain to the barren landscape with a rain dance, but aren’t doing so well — until a native finds a passed out Kendall and teaches him how to do a proper rain dance.
“We love you all by the way…I can’t begin to tell you how cool it feels to release music to people who are eager to hear it. #RainDontCome,” Kendall wrote to the band’s fans on Twitter after the debut.
Along with Kira Kosarin, the 25-year-old former Big Time Rush actor will be guest starring on School of Rock, the network’s brand new series.
“I’m gonna be guest starring on @NickelodeonTV’s new show #SchoolOfRock! Can’t wait for you all to meet my character,” Kira announced on her Twitter.
The show follows a group of rule-abiding students — Zack (Lance Lim), Lawrence (Aidan Miner), Freddy (Ricardo Hurtado), Summer (Jade Pettyjohn) and Tomika (Breanna Yde) — who learn to take risks and reach new heights thanks to substitute teacher Dewey Finn (Tony Cavalero), a down-on-his-luck musician who uses the language of rock ‘n’ roll to inspire his class to form a secret band.
School of Rock will premiere on Saturday, March 12th.
It looks like the 25-year-old Big Time Rush singer flew to New Zealand to hang out with a young, ill fan, who chose to spend time with him as part of the Make a Wish Foundation.
“‘My Valentine’ Had the most amazing time in #NewZealand with the most amazing young lady :)” Kendall captioned an Instagram collage. “Love you Grace! Thanks to @makeawishintl and everyone involved for making this dream possible! I’m honored to be a part of it.”

“Fans are expecting Logan and I to work together because we’re going to Italy to do some shows, but Big Time Rush has never broken up. We made it a point to do that. We didn’t want to be the guys who were like, ‘we’re done!’” he shared. “We’re a band. You’ll always be a band if you really care about the guys and are willing to work together, so I don’t see anything that would hold us back from working together again.”
Kendall continued, “Of course we talk about it and I think whenever it lines up with what everyone is doing, because we’re all so busy, I don’t see a reason why something special and fun wouldn’t happen. And I think fans would be excited about it. I think they should keep their hopes up because we’re not going to disappoint.”
“We all support each other,” Kendall added. “We knew coming into this that supporting each other on social networks was going to be a big deal. We even had conversations where we agreed that we’d always tweet each other’s stuff and take care of each other, and we have to this day.”
