One of the latest in a long line of tween musical success stories, Victoria Justice is a fresh faces on the pop music scene that owes the majority of her success to the hard work and perseverance she put into acting and musical work over the course of her childhood. Justice was born in Hollywood, Fla., in 1993 and developed a love of acting from a young age. After appearing in a series of television commercials and Nickelodeon kids' series, her family relocated to Los Angeles when she was only 11 years old. She auditioned and was accepted to Los Angeles' prestigious Performing Arts Magnet School.
After playing a series of small roles on television shows like "Gilmore Girls" and "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody," she achieved her first major cast role on the Nickelodeon series "Zoey 101" as Lola Martinez. The actress was a fixture on the show for two seasons, while also scoring roles in films like "Unknown" and other television series like "iCarly" and "Everwood." However, Justice's career took a major step forward in 2010 when she picked up the lead role on a new Nickelodeon TV series, "Victorious."
Justice played the role of Tori Vega, an aspiring singer who attends Hollywood Arts High School and chronicles her trials and tribulations of trying to succeed in the world of performing arts. The sitcom lasted for four seasons and helped showcase Justice's vocal talent on a variety of soundtracks for the series, including Victorious: Music From the Hit TV Show and Victorious 2.0: More Music from the Hit TV Show. The soundtracks featured a mix of successful songs, like "Make It Shine," "You're The Reason" and "Beggin' On Your Knees." After the show concluded in early 2013, Justice turned her attention to her growing musical career and went into the studio to record her debut album. The record is expected to be released sometime during 2013 and will be followed up with a major tour of North America, so fans of the television series certainly have plenty to look forward to from this talented up-and-comer.
