We’ve already asked PopCrush readers to vote on their favorite Disney actor turned pop star, so of course, we had to give love to the singers that were spawned from Nickelodeon television shows. Over the years, Nickelodeon has churned out many singers, from the guys of Big Time Rush to ‘Best Friend’s Brother’ songstress Victoria Justice. Out of the six Nickelodeon recording artists we’ve selected, who is your favorite?

Kicking off our poll is TV boy band turned superstars Big Time Rush. The foursome — Kendall Schmidt (pictured above), James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson — became famous thanks to their show ‘Big Time Rush,’ which focuses on their misadventures after they give up their hockey dreams to start a boy band. Now, they’re selling out performances and making fans go wild with Ryan Tedder-penned tracks like ‘Music Sounds Better With U.’

Meanwhile on Nick, ‘Victorious’ starlets Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande might’ve hit it big thanks to their television stints as up-and-coming singers, but both girls have gone on to release their own singles in the real world. Justice has dropped tracks like ‘All I Want Is Everything,’ ‘Best Friend’s Brother’ and ‘Make It in America,’ while Grande unveiled her original song like ‘Put Your Hearts Up’ in 2011.

Miranda Cosgrove and Jennette McCurdy are another pair of Nickelodeon co-stars who have gone on to solo singing careers. When they aren’t acting on their sitcom ‘iCarly,’ based around three friends who their own wacky web show, Cosgrove and McCurdy keep busy in the recording studio laying down tracks like ‘Dancing Crazy’ and ‘Generation Love,’ respectively. Speaking of Miranda Cosgrove, her older ‘Drake & Josh’ co-star Drake Bell is a singer-songwriter/producer, with two studio albums under his belt at only 25 years old.

So, PopCrush readers, who is your favorite Nickelodeon star turned pop star? Vote below!
