2013 is literally hours away but we couldn’t close out the year without first looking back on BeautifulBallad’s 10 Best Moments/Things from 2012!
Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus took a break from television when their respective Disney Channel shows ended and both girls were back on the small screen in a BIG way in 2012! Demi was a judge for The X Factor while Miley’s two-time guest stint on Two and a Half Men helped the show reach a ratings high!
So many amazing albums were released this year from Justin Bieber’s Believe to Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away to One Direction’s Up All Night and Take Me Home to Taylor Swift’s RED. Regardless of your musical preferences this was a great year in music.
Pretty Little Liars delivered on the drama this year with their shocking summer finale this past summer. We were so excited for the reveal of another member of the “A” team, and for once PLL actually surprised us. We had no idea Toby was going to be in on the torture of the four Little Liars but we can’t wait to see how it all plays out when PLL returns in 2013!
Jennifer Lawrence and One Direction were just two of this year’s Breakout Stars but they were the main ones we could not get enough of. Jennifer’s portrayal of Katniss in The Hunger Games surpassed our expectations and she’s already garnering Oscar buzz with her role in Silver Linings Playbook. One Direction successfully broke the United States this year with not one, but two records, and we adored both!
2011 saw the end of the Harry Potter film franchise but Daniel Radcliffe solidified our love for him with his hilarious hosting of Saturday Night Live. He showed that he is so much more than the Boy Wizard and he definitely got us excited for all his new movies planned in 2013.
The Vampire Diaries is one of our favorite shows and we were so excited when Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) finally got together. Ian and Nina’s chemistry is insane and it has been a long time coming for us, and other fans, to see these two get together.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth as a couple stole our hearts with their film The Last Song and we have been in love with them as a pair ever since. We were delighted this year to learn that Liam decided to make Miley his missus by proposing in May. We cannot wait to learn more about their impending nuptials, we know these two crazy kids will have an awesome wedding.
As much as we loved the solo efforts by Nick and Joe Jonas we were delighted to learn the Jonas Brothers had reunited. Add in the arrival of three new songs and we could barely contain our excitement. The brothers have a studio album planned for 2013 but it was their reuniting in 2012 that was one of our favorite moments of the year.
We’ve already discussed our love for the music released this year but the tours that accompanied the new albums took the music to a new level. Justin Bieber’s wildly successful Believe tour has been crazy fun and Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away tour was a night filled with unbelievable singing. Big Time Rush’s tour was such a blast and Scotty McCreery’s opening for Brad Paisley really made a statement of how big he will be in country music. One Direction’s two tours in the United States were fantastic, as well. Overall, an excellent year in music!
For purely nostalgic reasons, one of our favorite moments from 2012 has to be the announcement of the Boy Meets World sequel/spin-off Girl Meets World. We can’t wait to see Cory, Topanga and the gang all back together and trying to raise their own teenage girl. Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage coming back for the next installment really have us stoked for the new addition!
Aside from all of this, the major highlight of our year has been YOU, our beautiful, fabulous, insanely awesome readers. We love getting feedback from you and hope to continue to bring you all the best gossip and information on all things Young Hollywood in 2013! Thank you for letting us be able to do this!!!
