Victorious (shown as VICTORiOUS) is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon. The show is about a teenage girl named Tori Vega (played by Victoria Justice), who wants to become a popstar.

Storyline[change | change source]

She goes to a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts High School, which she got accepted into after taking her older sister Trina's (Daniella Monet) place in a showcase. Every day Tori and her friends and sister get into wacky situations.

On her first day at Hollywood Arts, she meets Andre Harris (Leon Thomas III), Robbie Shapiro (Matt Bennett), Rex Powers (Robbie's puppet), Jade West (Elizabeth Gillies), Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande), and Beck Oliver (Avan Jogia). The show aired for the first time on March 27, 2010 after the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards. The show has won the Favorite TV Show award at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards.

On August 10, 2012, Victoria Justice said that the series would not return for a fourth season.[3] A spin-off to Victorious, Sam & Cat, was announced and started airing in 2013 and ended in 2014.

Characters[change | change source]

  • Tori Vega - the main character of the series. She goes to school at Hollywood Arts, a high school for talented teens. She first discovered her talent after she takes her big sister Trina's place in a big showcase at the school. Tori's best friend is Andre Harris, and her is frenemy is Jade West.
  • Andre Harris - a musical prodigy who is Tori's best friend. He helps Tori out a lot. He takes music very seriously.
  • Robbie Shapiro - a nerdy boy who carries a puppet named Rex Powers.
  • Jade West - a Gothic girl who is Tori's frenemy. She is often the villain of the series, but sometimes she is a main character. Her boyfriend is Beck Oliver.
  • Cat Valentine - a sweet and innocent girl who is also very naive. Her hair is dyed the color red because it is the color of her favorite snack, a red velvet cupcake. When she feels offended, she will say "What's that supposed to mean?!" Andre nicknames her little red, because she is little and has red hair. She is also the only character who is a good friend to Trina, because the other characters (especially Tori because they are sisters) usually get annoyed by Trina.
  • Beck Oliver - Jade's boyfriend, who is well-liked by the other characters. He keeps things together in rough situations.
  • Trina Vega - Tori's big sister, who was always the star of the Vega house. She acts like a diva as she believes that stardom is her destiny, but the truth is that she does not have much talent. Her attitude is that she is a celebrity, but she really has the talent of a much lower grade.
  • Rex Powers - Robbie's puppet. He is often sarcastic, unlike Robbie.
