About the Episode

In the series' first one-hour special, it’s the event of Big Time Rush's first CD release. They go through a lot of hard work, including being trained by Dak Zevon, and being jumped on by a crazy fan. When Griffin, the head of the record label, dashes the boys, dream of being musicians. Kendall and Jo also have their first kiss once she finds out about the news. The boys return to Minnesota to focus on other goals, Logan is working on his dream of being a doctor, Kendall is working on his dream of being a hockey player and Carlos wants to be a Superhero, and James just wants to be Famous so he continues to not talk to the other boys, James is riding his bike and runs into Hawk's car and becomes Hawk's new pop-star to knock Big Time Rush out, only it’s not as it seems as he does not have his own vocals or his own lips! James returns to the boys once he realizes he misses them. The boys bring back the giant turd song and James interprets his famous ending to the song, while the other boys were trying to find a replacement for James. Gustavo and the boys then plan their first big concert. However, right before their sold out concert starts, Hawk, Gustavo's archrival and his assistant, Rebecca, kidnaps the four boys and tries to destroy the band's career. The boys will try everything to escape, including fall down stairs, while tied up in chairs. In the end, they make it to the concert and get a three-record deal, and a worldwide tour, and a Sebastian, which Gustavo does not know what the heck it is, and Kelly made Griffin promise to never do anything like this again, then you see a similar ending like we've seen in Big Time Audition and Big Time Move "And the Musical Journey Continues".

It’s been confirmed by the boys that the Second season will premiere September 24th, 2010.

Gustavo: ...Should I remind them that preparing for a concert will be the hardest thing they've ever done? And that it's not in Times Square?
Kelly: Oh, let them have their fantasy. They look so happy!
Gustavo: FINE...i'll give them another minute. Then I'll burst their bubble!

Carlos: I thought training was fun.
Logan: That's your concussion talking.
Carlos: (faints)

Kendall: I'm not good at goodbyes.
Jo: Well, then. Here's something to remember me by. (grabs Kendall by the shirt and kisses him on the lips)
Camille: Wow...she's really good at goodbyes.
Kendall: I never thought that...our first kiss would be our last.
Logan: Do I get something to remember you by?
Camille: Of course. (leans in for a kiss, but then slaps him to the floor. Kendall and Jo look at her, and she shrugs)

Hawk: Give me the rundown.
Rebecca: (pointing at a picture of the boys) Logan Mitchell. The smart one. Which means he'll ask questions. (points at Kendall) Kendall Knight. The complete package, but strong headed, hard to control. (points at Carlos) Carlos Garcia. High energy, a good dancer, but wears a helmet for no apparent reason. (points at James) James Diamond. Extra pretty, solid voice, driven beyond belief.

Hawk: Really?! Well, i'm sticking with the double caw.

Carlos: Still unnamed superhero!
