Big Time Rush Wiki

"Big Time Sparks" is the fifteenth episode of the first season of Big Time Rush. It premiered on Nickelodeon on June 18, 2010. The episode features singer and actress Jordin Sparks as a special guest star.


Jordin is coming back to the Palm Woods to record a song with Gustavo. Gustavo warns the boys not to go anywhere near her because they are bad luck charms and break everything they touch.

Meanwhile, Bitters is trying to get photos of Jordin's goofs but fails, because every time she goofs Kendall happens to be there to save her. After seeing him save Jordin twice, Jo believes he has a thing for Jordin and is jealous.

Because Hawk wants Jordin to record with him, he sends a skunk to Rocque Records and when Gustavo calls him in fury, he explains it's because Jordin will see how Rocque Records literally stinks and go to Hawk Records to record her song instead.

James accidentally breaks a mirror and is convinced it will give him 7 years of bad luck. He then forces Tyler to dress up as a leprechaun while he looks for a four-leaf clover.

Logan and Carlos dress up as the Good Luck Patrol because Gustavo says they are bad luck charms and decides to help people achieve good luck instead.

As the guys accidentally meet around a well (Kendall to set up a picnic with Jo, James to find a four-leaf clover, and Carlos and Logan to be the Good Luck Patrol) where Jordin is getting ready to throw a penny into it, Kendall and James fight over a horseshoe and it accidentally flies out of their grip and knocks Jordin into the well.

Things don't go well with all of the boys and Jordin. However, BTR and Jordin found hope when they were in the well. The boys learn that her song was meant to be a duet and were able to complete it. Though reluctant, Gustavo lets the boys and Jordin make the song together. In the end, the song is a success and both the boys and Jordin send a skunk to Hawk and Jordin thanks the boys for helping her with the song.


While Jordin is staying at the Palm Woods, she ends up attempting to spend time with Kendall. Unfortunately, Jo keeps catching Kendall and Jordin together. It makes Jo jealous, and she begins getting angry at Kendall. In the end, Jordin helps Kendall reconcile with Jo.

Hawk: Gustavo! Congratulations on landing the new Jordin Sparks song. I take it you got my present.
Gustavo: Hawk! I will destroy you, because you are a big, giant STUPID FACE!

Kendall: Freight Train is squeezing us!
James: This is our big present?
Kendall: We knocked Jordin Sparks down a well!
Carlos: Nobody panic! I'm sure that Jordin is fine. [takes a coin out] I wish that Jordin is okay. [throws the coin down the well]
Jordin: OW!

[The boys become relieved.]

Kendall and Jordin: [from the well] It's not what it looks like!
Gustavo: In light of recent skunky events, I have decided...NOT to kill you. (the boys sigh) HOWEVER! You blatantly disregarded my orders to stay away from Jordin Sparks. And proved, once again, you are BAD...LUCK...RUSH!!!
Jordin: Gustavo...they're not bad luck. They're good luck.
Kelly: Um, they knocked you down a well.
Jordin: Yeah, but if I hadn't fallen down the well, I would have never figured out the song.
Gustavo: They helped you figure out the song?
Jordin: Yeah! It's not a solo... it's a duet.
Gustavo: (laughs) Duet? Duet... with Big Time Rush. That is the most-greatest idea I've ever had.
