Big Time Rush Wants to Record With One Direction! On the Scene At ‘Big Time Movie’ Premiere
Now, with the premiere of their new TV movie, the aptly titled Big Time Movie (8PM on Nickelodeon), just hours away, BTR (better known as Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, Carlos Pena, Jr. and James Maslow) is ready to take the world by storm – a sign, perhaps, that boy bands have returned after all.
Celebuzz was on the scene at the premiere of Big Time Movie, held Thursday night in New York City, where we talked about everything from their future movie aspirations to touring with another boy band: Britain’s One Direction.
So, what would happen if BTR and One Direction got together in the studio?
“It would sound like of dudes singing on one song,” Kendall quipped.
“It’s kind of a cool, interesting question,” he added. “Everyone has different tones. In One Direction, there’s guys who have kind of like a rocky voice, and really Broadway; Liam [Payne] has, like, a Broadway voice. But I’m sure it would be something really, super popular.”
“I guess we’ll wait until we make a song and then we’ll show you guys,” said Logan, who added he is “definitely” up for recording with One Direction – if BTR has time, anyway.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson offered similar enthusiasm about recording with BTR. “I don’t see why not. They’re on the same label as us, so yeah, why not?” he told Celebuzz, joking that the song would be “more of a hip-hop, R&B rap style mash-up.”
Big Time Movie is the latest made-for-television flick from the band, which finds them on an unexpected mission to save the world while on tour in London. Along the way, they cover some of The Beatles’ most popular songs, from ‘Help!’ to ‘We Can Work It Out.’
“We’d love to do a real DVD for our concert, and then maybe something for the big screen after,” Kendall said. “Or maybe Big Time Movie 2 will be in theaters!”
With Big Time Rush fully established in the States, it’s now up to One Direction to accomplish their own version of the British Invasion. As 1D’s Niall Horan told us, they plan to conquer America by sticking to the same routine.
“We’re trying to work hard,” he said. “We know America is very hard to crack. Every state is a new country to us, really. It’s gonna be tough, but we’re gonna keep putting in the hard work and be ourselves and do what we enjoy.”
Does this mean we’ll be seeing a One Direction movie in the future?
“Who knows?” said Zayn Malik. “Maybe in the future, if we get the opportunity to do that … But right now we’re concentrating on our music.”
