Can you believe that it's already mid-July?! Summer is flying by, but that doesn't mean we're slowing things down here at TeenNick. In fact, we're just getting started! So while you're catching some rays by the pool or sipping on a cold glass of lemonade, be sure to turn on this summer's best hits.
This Friday, TNT10 will be welcoming the cast of Every Witch Way, as well as the return of fresh artist 5 Seconds of Summer! So don't sweat it if you missed them on previous episodes, because now's your chance to check out this four-piece Aussie band. And did we mention that listening to their hit single "She Looks So Perfect" is the best way to gear up for a summer sunset?
And let's not forget last week's episode featuring a Kid's Choice Sports 2014 Takeover! We hope you all voted for your favorite A-list athletes. But just in case you were too busy hanging out at the beach, there's still time to vote before the show on Thursday, July 17th at 8pm ET!
Be sure to tune in at 10 pm ET on TeenNick to watch this week's ultimate countdown! In the meantime, let us know which summer single you think is the hottest by voting right here.

You know that anywhere, anytime music that just puts you in a good mood no matter what? Well, Aussie pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer are pretty much the poster boys for that kind of feel-good vibe. And chances are, you've already come across (and subsequently played on repeat) 5SOS's mega-hit "She Looks So Perfect." But we're here to tell you that Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton are only getting started.
We caught up with our new Fresh Artist to learn a little more about their debut album which drops July 22nd, their experience on tour with One Direction, and the ultimate question: Boxers, briefs or tighty whities?
1. From your hit single "She Looks So Perfect" to your TV debut on the Billboard Music Awards, we can imagine the past few months of your career have been quite the whirlwind. What is the biggest difference in your lives right now compared to a year or two ago?
It's been a whirlwind! Four hours sleep a night, lots of air miles, lots of new cultures. Our love for touring remains the same, and we cannot wait to be back in America!
2. Your songs are very lyrically driven and clever. If you had to choose one line from one of your songs as your favorite, which would it be and why?
If Hollywood could see me now
I'd get the starring role
But they won't so I'll just keep on acting a fool
From "Heartache on the Big Screen"
3. Having been on tour with One Direction, what have you learned from the band that has helped you with your own career?
They work so hard, and have shown us that by working hard you can achieve big things no matter where you are from.
4. What is one of the craziest things a fan has ever done for you?
[One fan] bought us a star. It was called the A155 Star in the Milky Way...
5. Your debut album drops in July! In three words, can you describe what fans can expect from the album?
High energy rock!
6. And finally, what is one thing in America that you wish you had in Australia?
RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS
And now, the rapid fire round! We asked 5 Seconds of Summer's Ashton Irwin a series of silly questions, and here are the first things that came to mind!
If you want to catch more of these guys, head over to the TeenNick Top 10 page! And don't forget to tune in this Friday at 10pm ET!

Summer is totally heating up, and that means trips to the beach, days by the pool, and a soundtrack of the hottest songs of the season! This Friday, TeenNick Top 10 is bringing you the Top 10 Hot Artists of the Summer, featuring the perfect tunes for those lazy summer days.
And where better to count down the hottest songs of the summer than from the most amazing vacation spot on Earth...Hawaii?! That's right, Nick Cannon will host this week's episode from the island paradise surrounded by sun, sand and tons of palm trees.
Plus, TNT10 will be welcoming special guests Rita Ora and our newest Fresh Artist, 5 Seconds of Summer! You might be a little jealous (and you'll definitely want the summer to last for more than 5 seconds), but this is a countdown you won't want to miss!
Can't wait for Friday? In the meantime, take our quiz to find out "What's Your 2014 Summer Song?" Maybe your song will make it onto the Hot Artist countdown!
