Selena Gomez UNICEF concert at House of Blues with Big Time Rush January 20,2012

20120121-172220.jpg

On January 20, 2012, Selena Gomez had a charity concert for UNICEF at the House of Blues on Sunset. Noah Guthrie was her opening act. He sang a few songs and he was great.
He has been on Ellen and Selena was so impressed by his talent she asked him to open for her!

Jake Whetter from Radio Disney introduced each act.

Selena had been tweeting that there would be special guest and surprise guests and most people guessed it would be her boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Twitter was filled with mentions that he would perform that night.

Big Time Rush was actually the surprise! The crowd which was mostly young girls with parents and teens loved them! They came out and sang If I ruled the World, Looking for a Boyfriend, the Music Sounds Better with You. As they left the stage they tried to touch fans hands at the edge of the stage. Carlos tried to wave at every fan who waved to him and gave back hand hearts.

Selena came out and thanked the crowd for coming out to her 2nd charity concert for UNICEF. In October of 2010, she had one at The Roxy in Hollywood.
She explained that she is an ambassador for UNICEF and that they provide food, water, and medicine in other countries.

She said there was no set list, no schedule. She took questions from the crowd and requests.
Someone asked if she had a New Years Resolution. She laughed and said, “No, cuz I can’t keep them!”
Someone asked about her fashion and where she shopped she said “everywhere and Forever 21”

She sang all her hits, Round and Round, Naturally, Who Says.

When she sang A Year Without Rain, she brought a little girl named Sasha up on stage. At her first concert for UNICEF, she brought Sasha on stage too. So Sasha was up singing the same song again at this concert! It was so cute! Selena loves kids and is so comfortable with them.

At one point, she meant to sing one song and started to sing Naturally instead. She giggled talked about it a little and started again!

She brought Big Time Rush out to sing a song with her. James brought out his husky puppy Fox and and said he was good and quiet and asked us to all say “Hi Fox” and we did. Carlos brought out an iPad and Selena teased him because she just had a piece of paper. They only practiced the song once. It was a cover of a Jason Mraz song called Won’t Give Up. The harmonies were beautiful. After the song the guys all kissed Selena on the cheeks and left.

At the end of the concert she talked about her mom. She said “She can’t be here tonight, but I know these songs will be on You Tube so mom if you are watching this, this is for you.”
And she sang The House that Built Me by Miranda Lambert.

Selena ALWAYS takes time in every concert to say how much her fans mean to her and that she wouldn’t be who she is without the live and support we all give her.

The last song she sang was Who Says and she said ” no matter who you are boy or girl, young or old, you get insecure and wonder if you are good enough.. This songs is for you..

The concert was great and some fans said Ashley Tisdale and Ashley Benson was there.

Stephen Glickman from Big Time Rush happened to be at an event near by and stopped at the end if the night

You know this col guy from Big Time Rush AND Good Luck Charlie!!

By the way he is NOT the red head from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. That guys name is Robert Capron.

Ob BTR, Tucker plays Tyler. He’s always hiding from his mom who usually wants to take him to an audition. On GLC, he’s Jake, Gabe’s friend!! As if it wasn’t enough being on two shows on two major networks, Tucker also appeared in I am Number 4, and has filmed a few upcoming projects.

You know the series of dog Buddies movies???
Snow Budddies, Space Buddies, Santa Buddies?? well Tucker will be the voice of Bartleby in a new movie called SpookyBuddies. He also will be the voice of Harrison in a new movie called Alvin and the Chipmunks Chip-Wrecked.

As if that wasn’t enough, he is also cast to play a main character in a new Disney XD series called Pack of Wolves. Its about a single dad who’s a scientist raising 3 sons. Robbie Tucker and Paul Vogt play his brothers. A spy rents a spare room in the house and teaches the boys all kinds of spy tricks!!

Tucker is one busy guy!!
I’ve met him at events and he’s very nice. He’s a little shy on the red carpet but I think its because he really doesn’t want to brag.

His brother is Patrick Pedraja who was the 2007 CNN Heroes Young Wonders winner at the age of 12. Tucker helped his brother organize international marrow drives for charity.

Tucker is 11 years old He loves acting, panda’s and video games!

Big Time Rush Set Visit

On January 17, 2011 my mom and I met the stars of Big Time Rush and toured the set on the Paramount Studios Lot in Hollywood, California. I was very lucky to have won a raffle at my school. It isn’t easy to get a set visit to this hit show! We were on set for about 2 hours and got to see all the sets and watch the cast, well the 4 guys and Tanya, rehearse a scene and tape it!

Big Time Rush or #BTR is show on Nickelodeon about friendship among four guys who used to be hockey players. They move from Minnesota to the Palm Woods Apartments in LA to become a band. They attend Palm Woods school with other kids and teens who want to be performers. The series premiered on Nickelodeon on November 28, 2009 with an hour long episode called Big Time Audition. There have been other hour long shows as well.

The creator of the show is Scott Fellows. He has a background in animation and also created Ned’s Declassified. This is why the show has a crazy, silly look. The guys do all kinds of hilarious situations, there are silly sound effects and dream/imagination scenes. This show is NOT filmed in front of a live audience. All the sets are in a sound stage, even the Palm Woods pool. There is a single camera and in the 2 hours we were there, they probably filmed 20 seconds of a scene.

The guys are all actually talented musicians and singers and have had concerts and meet and greets. They have released a CD and a DVD . The show has been nominated for Poptastic awards and Kid’s Choice Awards in 2010. It is playing in several countries and they will soon tour different countries in Europe including Germany.

The stars of the series

Kendell Schmidt as Kendall Knight


Kendell Knight the 16 year old leader of the band who keeps them from messing things up too badly!

When I met Kendell on set. He was really sweet! He liked my dress, necklace and ring. He said he was excited about going to Germany and was learning how to say “Where’s the bathroom?” in German. He says he’s pretty excited about the tour! He said I could eat whatever I wanted from the tent that had the food for the cast and crew!

James Maslow as James Diamond.

James Diamond is really handsome and thinks that every girl is attracted to him!

When I was walking toward Studio 27, James was riding a bike past us. Our guide asked if he was coming back and he said he was done for the day. When he saw I was there for a visit. He got off his bike took of his sunglasses and talked to us for a while. I had met James once before at Debby Ryan’s screening of 16 Wishes. He was really sweet that day too!

Carlos Pena Jr.as Carlos Garcia

Carlos Garcia is the shortest and youngest guy in the band. He wears his Hockey helmet for no reason.

The day I was on the set, they were filming an episode called Big Time Break Up. Carlos was refusing to take off his helmet and when Kelly was bothering him about it, he sent a bowling ball down the swirly slide to keep her from climbing up. I had met all the guys except him and it was getting late so our guide took me upstairs to meet him. He said, “Hi are you a fan of the show?” I said, “yeah” and I gave him a little present. He asked our guide if I could go down the slide she kept saying , “No” because they were still set up for filming but he insisted! It was pretty fun!! I have met Carlos before at a Hollywood Knights game. After the BTR concert at the Citadel Outlets he came to a celebrity basketball game with Samantha Droke and Francia Raisa. We took a pic that day and it’s my Twitter profile pic!

Logan Henderson as Logan Mitchell

Logan Mitchell is the genius of the group and comes up with solutions to problems.

I met Logan on set he was really sweet and we talked for a little bit! He gave me a very nice hug!

The series also has many co-stars that add to the story lines. The only one I met on my visit to the set was was Tanya Chisholm . I have met a few other members of the cast at other events.

Ciara Bravo plays Katie Knight, Kendell’s little sister.
She’s really smart and likes to blackmail the guys.

Stephen Kramer Glickman plays Gustavo Rocque, the band’s producer and the owner of Rocque Records.
He’s always pushing the boys to be successful since he used to be big but hasn’t had a hit in years!

Tanya Chisholm plays Gustavo’s assistant, Kelly Wainwright,

She often has to help the boys focus in order to be successful. Tanya took a break from rehearsing her lines to come an d visit me. She said when she was little she wished her name was Alexi. She actually lied to a teacher and the teacher wrote Alexi on one of her certificates. She was also in Legally Blondes with Brittany Curran. She is very pretty and nice!

Challen Cates plays Mrs. Knight Kendell and Katie’s mom.
She tries hard to be a god mom but she is often too trusting

David Anthony Higgins plays Mr. Bitters.
He’s a strict mean manager who can’t stand all the boys silliness

Erin Sanders plays Camille Roberts


Camille’s a 16 year old who wants be be an actress really badly.

I’ve met Erin several times. She loves to support friends and charities. She and her mom are very close. You may recognize her from Zoey 101. She played Quinn on that show!

Katelyn Tarver plays Jo Taylor


Jo a singer/actress who dated Kendell.

Katelyn is really sweet. I’ve met her a few times!

Tucker Albrizzi plays Tyler Duncan.


He’s a little red head who hides from mom who is obsessed with getting him acting jobs.

Tucker is really cool. He also plays Jake on Good Luck Charlie. His mom says he loves acting but doesn’t feel that comfotable on red carpets and being interviewed.I met him at a charity event in Los Angeles.

The series is taped in Studio 27 on the lot at Paramount Studios in Hollywood California. The day after I visited the guys were going to film a new music video at an airport. I overheard someone saying that in December, they spent about a week filming an hour long episode at Malibu beach. Visiting the set and meeting the guys was a blast! I loved seeing all the rooms and areas where they film the different scenes.

I hope you enjoyed this Blog! My mom and I worked hard on it! I love meeting stars and going to events in Los Angeles !
