Hey M Girls!
M Editor Brittany here and I can't wait to tell you all about my awesome trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida with the Victorious cast! The entire cast was there to kick-off Universal's Summer Concert Series, do a Q&A session with fans, sign autographs and of course, have a blast on the amazing rides and roller-coasters! As soon as I saw the cast, they greeted me with big hugs and were so excited to see the new issue of M! Ariana and her bro Frankie told us how much they loved the pics from her bedroom shoot--so did we! Here's other things I noticed:
-Ariana and Victoria were super-close, right before our interview with the cast, Ariana was showing something to Vic on her phone and they both Instagrammed a cute pic of them!
-Daniella Monet brought her adorable boyfriend, Andrew who was so supportive during the concert. He kept yelling her name and taking pix of her
-Ariana and Leon spilled only to us about their upcoming duet! "We did a cover that's really amazing--it's Drake and Rihanna's 'Take Care'. Ariana added to us: "It sounds ridiculous. Very special." Can't wait to hear it! Look for more scoop in the upcoming August issue of M!
The weekend was jam-packed before the concert, but I made sure to get video from the guy Q&A, where fans got to ask the boys anything they wanted!
Here's Matt Bennett, Leon Thomas and Avan Jogia talking about their fave songs from the show:
Matt explains how he learns to be a ventriloquist!
The boys spill advice to you on how you can get your big break in Hollywood:
We were LOL-ing when Avan told us about his dream involving a panther!
After the Q&A, we got to ride some of the attractions ourselves (The Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride was our fave and we absolutely fell in love with Butter Beer!). Then I headed to a Victorious episode screening, where I totally got the cast's rap "Five Fingers To The Face" stuck in my head for the rest of the day! Luckily, I got to see the fun song live that night, so I was ready to sing along! LOL :)
The concert was packed with people and I talked to Frankie, Ariana's bro right before the cast took the stage. He had his own camera out to video their performance -- what a great sibling! Check out vids from the concert:
The cast sings "Make It In America":
And here's Victoria singing "Make It Shine"
The concert was so much fun -- Leon Thomas and Matt Bennett got the crowd doing their solo performances and Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande debuted their new duet "LA Boys" which was a TOTAL hit. (Sorry--we weren't allowed to record video during that song, but the tune will premiere in an upcoming episode of Victorious!). When the cast finished their last song together, we totally wanted more--the concert was so much fun!
So let's dish:
-What's your fave Victorious song? Who's your fave castmember?
