Big Time Rush Wiki

"Big Time Prom Kings" is the nineteenth episode of the second season of Big Time Rush, and the thirty-seventh episode overall. It first aired on Nickelodeon on May 21, 2011, as part of the network's "Prom Night" event block.


The Palm Woods school is having its annual prom and Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan are all determined to win the title of Prom King - and each will do whatever it takes to win. Kendall learns Jo is grounded & can't leave the house because of the incident Monday night, Kendall & Jo were watching the sky & Jo reminded Kendall that her curfew was 10:00pm and Kendall looked at his phone revealing that it was midnight. Carlos masters up the guts to ask one of the Jennifers, he & Katie devise a plan to split them up so she won't reject him. It comes to a success when they split her up with the blonde Jennifer at the elevator.

Carlos shows up with flowers & asks her. She looks surprised as she walks backwards into the elevator & says sure. Meanwhile Logan is trying to cope with Camille having a date to the prom that's not him and jealously overtakes him as he tries to prevent them from becoming prom King and Queen. In the process of helping James get a date so he will for sure win prom king with Aubrey Stewart (Parody of Kristen Stewart) from "The Vampire Stories Chronicles Saga Trilogy," they go to her house and Logan, in a disguise knocks on the door and 3 security guards come out of the door. James pushes him into them as the guards beat on Logan.

Aubrey walks through the door as James checks her out & asks her to prom, she says yes. Katie gets Carlos a corsage, James takes a corsage to Aubrey but the guards ruin it. Kendall sneaks Jo out of the house but at the prom, she's a little paranoid because in this episode we find out her dad is an agent, which Jo is not allowed to talk about. To ensure that she is still in her room, they use Buddha Bob to pretend he's Jo. However, he ends up breaking character and Jo's dad goes to the prom to find Jo. Carlos is un-attracted to Jennifer after she's a little different than she is with the other Jennifers, so he breaks up with her making her cry and as a result, they all run after him. Meanwhile James makes Aubrey cry, confessing he only brought her, so he would win Prom King. The guards run after him & he hides in the bathroom while Logan finds Camille and asks her for a favor.

James & her switch outfits by leaving James in her dress & they both sneak out of the bathroom. Kendall and Jo are about to slow dance but Jo's dad picks up Jo and he escorts her and Kendall out of the prom. Gustavo & Kelly read out Prom King & Queen but all the couples are unable to do so because of drama. Gustavo decides that whoever is in the spotlight wins. To Logan and James' surprise, they are caught in the spotlight & in the end they win Prom King & Queen.


Gustavo: And the winners are...Logan and Jamie...
Kendall: Wait you said "We"
Jo: Is that you date? (She pointed to guitar dude's guitar)

Logan: Well, you aren't the prom king, but you are...
James: DON'T... say it!
