Victoria Justice & Daniella Monet are Tori & Trina Vega

Victoria Justice‘s dream is coming a reality.

The 16-year-old actress will play Tori Vega in the upcoming Nickelodeon show, Victorious.

Tori is a teen who unexpectedly finds herself navigating life at an elite performing arts high school. After her sister Trina (Daniella Monet) has a medical mishap on the night of the school’s annual talent showcase, Tori steps in to perform Trina’s song. Accompanied on the piano by her musically-gifted friend André (Leon Thomas), Tori’s singing and dancing impress the school’s principal so much that she offers her the opportunity of a lifetime – an invitation to become a student at Hollywood Arts High School.

From her first day at the school, Tori feels out of place among the amazingly talented students, especially mean diva Jade (Elizabeth Gillies). With the help of Trina, André and her new friends – brooding bad boy Beck (Avan Jogia, Spectacular!), eccentric Cat (Ariana Grande) and lovable but psychologically scrambled ventriloquist Robbie (Matthew Bennett) – Tori realizes that she was born to perform and that entertaining people not only makes her happy but may change her life.

Victoria dished to the NY Post about her performance scene, saying, “It was actually my first time ever performing in front of people which was pretty intense. But, like my character, once I got on stage, I just completely forgot about everything — I was so in the zone that I loved every second of it.”

The series, premiering in early 2010, will feature original music performed by Victoria and the rest of the cast.

    Is this a copy of GLEE?????? I hope not…GLEE is soo awesome, and I, too go to PPAS (NYC), and I hate when these shows rip off the performing arts schools. Half these kids don’t even go to school – they are “homeschooled” which means they have it easy….
