The plot of the Nickelodeon series "Victorious" follows singer Tori Vega as she navigates life and attends Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school. Tori takes the place of her older, less talented sister in an important showcase after her sister, Trina, has an allergic reaction to an herbal product she thought would make her sing better. The plot follows Tori as she finds her place at the school, her friends, and crazy situations and adventures.
Talented teens from various fields in the performing arts attend the school Hollywood Arts. Tori’s group of friends at the school includes the musical prodigy Andre Harris, her best friend at the school who helps her realize her talent, the socially-awkward ventriloquist Robbie Shapiro and his puppet Rex Powers, the Gothic and sarcastic Jade West and the innocent and naïve Cat Valentine. Beck Oliver is the handsome, down-to-earth love interest of Jade West, but moments of attraction occur between Tori and Beck, and they nearly kiss twice. Other characters of note are the school’s guidance counselor Lane Alexander, the performing arts teacher Erwin Sikowitz and the audio visual classmate Sinjin Van Cleef.
"Victorious" filmed three seasons, premiering on March 27, 2010, after the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
