It's been an exciting year of honors and accolades for AJ, Brian, Howie, Kevin and Nick. In A World Like This debuted in the Top 5, the group received a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, performed for the President of the United States and made an unforgettable appearance in the Seth Rogen hit film This Is The End, which earned the guys a "Best Musical Moment" award nomination at this year's MTV Movie Awards (April 13).

"Being a part of This Is The End has been amazing from start to finish!" says AJ McLean. "Seth, James and everyone else in this crew are beyond talented and we were extremely lucky to be a part of this film."
