article imageBig Time Rush's James Maslow: Great role model and entertainer

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 19, 2014 in Entertainment
Big Time Rush's James Maslow just turned 24 years old on July 16, and he has a lot to be proud of this year. He was a contestant and finalist on the latest season of "Dancing with the Stars."
Maslow is best-known for being a part of the Nickelodeon television show Big Time Rush, and band of the same name, along with Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson.
While competing on the 18th season of the reality competition, Dancing with the Stars, he was partnered with professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd, and he made it to the finals, finishing in fourth place. They had earned the first perfect score of the season (40/40) thanks to their stellar performance of their contemporary dance, which was accompanied by Idina Menzel's "Let It Go" from the animated film Frozen that was playing in the background.
This performance was also special for another reason. A special needs high school student named Hannah had invited him to prom with her via a creative and warm YouTube video that went viral. Although he was unable to fulfill her request to go to prom (due to scheduling with the competition), he did purchase three tickets for Hannah, her mother and younger sister to watch the contemporary dance performance live with the audience in Los Angeles. This proves that Maslow is a class act and that he has a big heart, and it is safe to say that he has changed that girl's life forever.
Maslow is also nominated for a "Young Hollywood Award," where he is up for "Hottest Body (of work)" along with fellow Dancing With The Stars dancer Derek Hough, actor Kellan Lutz, as well as models Chrissy Teigen and Kate Upton. The award show will take place on July 28.
He had also graced the cover of FitnessRx Magazine this past May, where he displayed his ripped physique.
More role models are needed like James Maslow in the contemporary pop music and entertainment scene. Having had the privilege to interview him in the past, Maslow is as genuine as they come.
