You’re probably thinking, well, of course boy band Big Time Rush made this list. Both Buzzworthy and Nickelodeon are rocking on Viacom’s dime, after all. And true, “Big Time Rush” the show has been one of Nickelodeon’s top shows since it premiered in early 2010, pulling in more than 7 million viewers, making it Nickelodeon’s biggest live-action series debut ever. But Big Time Rush the band has become a runaway success in its own right since the 2011 release of their smash singles “Worldwide” and “If I Ruled The World,” which have sold millions of downloads. Their sophomore album, Elevate, was just released less than a month ago and debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 chart. It’s already poised to outsell their B.T.R. debut. Another year of relentless touring — including a winter stint at Radio City — and their upcoming TV movie, Big Time Movie, should help.
Fans are able to vote for their favorites on MTV’s website until this Friday, when the official winner will be chosen.
Who do you think should win Favorite Breakthrough Band of 2011?
