WHO: Our Next Up Artist of the Week is R5!

WHY:  Talk about some serious fans! The entire #R5Family came out to see the exclusive Next Up performance! R5 is an LA based group that consists of Ross Lynch (of Disney Channel's Austin & Ally and Teen Beach Movie), Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch and best friend Ellington Ratliff... and yes, the four Lynchs are siblings!

The group released LOUDER, their debut album, in September which features the hit single "Loud." In addition to their album, R5 just wrapped the first leg of their world tour (no big deal) with round two is starting this week in Montreal!

FUN FACT:  If R5 could collaborate with anyone it would be either Bruno Mars or U2! 

SOUNDS LIKE: Jonas Brothers meets Demi Lovato 


Get to know R5 in the exclusive interview with Freddy Rivera below!
