Grammy nominated?[edit]

Where? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:50, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Okay. Big Time Rush was not Grammy nominated as of December 26, 2011. Iluvmarchingband (talk) 18:56, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Dustin Belt[edit]

Dustin Belt is the guitarist but he still hangs out with the band and is in Heffron Drive with Kendall! I suggest that he is merged into the Big Time Rush article! Who's with me? - (talk) 13:59, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

New Album?[edit]

How do we know that there's going to be an new album in 2015? When did Kendall Schmidt confirm that? Any sources on that? Where did the info about their new contract with Columbia come from? Hagandas (talk) 14:55, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Requested move 8 August 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Not moved. A dab page can be created if someone wishes to do so. (non-admin closure) Natg 19 (talk) 17:53, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

– After becoming a real-life band, I'd like to think that they're more notable than the TV show they were featured in. Unreal7 (talk) 11:24, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose as proposed. More notable one over the other is not really the main consideration as to whether or not one page or the other should be the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Big Time Rush (band) had 14776 views over the last 30 days. Big Time Rush had 27689 views over the last 30 days. Also the TV series article (November 3, 2009) proceeded the band article (July 15, 2010) so there some historical reason to keep it primary with a hatnote pointing to the band article as well as the band creation itself being an offshoot of the TV series. Geraldo Perez (talk) 13:38, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
After some further consideration, I don't see a huge difference in page views for one to be a strong primary. With the confusion possible I think that Big Time Rush should be moved to Big Time Rush (TV series) as suggested but Big Time Rush (band) left as is and a disambiguation page created at Big Time Rush pointing to both articles and other related topics. Geraldo Perez (talk) 14:23, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose no primary, create dab In ictu oculi (talk) 14:42, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose; as In ictu oculi said, a dab page is probably the best bet per the precedent set by The Cheetah Girls. Chase (talk | contributions) 17:57, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose. With the page views presented above (90 day views are similar), this is certainly not the primary topic. In fact, if some of the tv shows views are intended for the band, then I would say there is no primary topic. The tv show should be moved, and a disambiguation page should be created. kennethaw88talk 22:39, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose – the TV series is more the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC than the (now-defunct) group, and is only likely to become more so over time. That said, I can live with the WP:TWODABS option. --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:40, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Band broke up[edit]

It has been more than 2 years with no activity. Article said hiatus based on stated hopes but the members have moved on and there has been nothing documented showing any movement towards starting up again. If they ever do get back together we can document that but as of now we should just reflect reality in this article that the band is no more. Geraldo Perez (talk) 04:13, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Agreed – the band was essentially a creation of the TV show, and no one should be surprised that the band pretty much ended when the TV show did. --IJBall (contribstalk) 12:26, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Unless there is an announcement of the band getting back together supported by a reliable source, the fact remains that 2 years is sufficient have the article reflect the reality that the band is done and the members have moved on. In the unlikely event that they do get back together, we can change the article to reflect that they reformed. Geraldo Perez (talk) 18:58, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
This continues. 3 years with nothing from any of the members now. They've all moved on. They will not be getting back together. Geraldo Perez (talk) 23:48, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
