Already wildly popular in his native Australia (his Facebook page has over 2 million "Likes"), Cody Simpson, 15, is about to hit the big time with American audiences. Simpson, a pop sensation who was discovered on YouTube in 2009, will tour with the Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush (BTR) this summer.

"It's gonna be cool," Simpson told us in our exclusive interview, referring to the upcoming concert series. "We're gonna perform in front of a lot of people, some big crowds and some great opportunities. I've got nothing but great things to say about [BTR]. They're a great support for me. I'm very excited for this summer."

The BTR tour will make 53 stops across the country, kicking off July 5 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, and ending September 18 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon. Simpson will be opening for BTR along with Rachel Crow, 14, a performer who became famous on the American version of The X Factor.

Simpson says being on tour and performing in front of his fans is an uncannily awesome experience, so he is looking forward to being back on tour. "Honestly, my favorite part is going in front of my fans every single night and seeing them smiling, waving their hands and crying, singing along to the songs," he said. "It's an incredible experience that you really can't explain to someone unless they've kind of experienced it for themselves; it's such a unique thing. I love it very much."
