The duo, who play rival show choir leaders Royce and Tami, dished about the movie and tackled the constant comparison between Spectacular! and the popular High School Musical.
Victoria shared, “I think that people are comparing us to High School Musical because we do have music in Spectacular! but honestly, they weren’t the first to do musicals. There were tons of musicals way before that.”
Simon added, “Triple threats are a big thing right now. You know — singing, dancing, acting. All three. We’d like to think we’re capable of all three.”
Check out the full interview below and tune into Spectacular! TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.

Spectacular! stars Simon Curtis and Victoria Justice spend their Valentine’s Day signing lots of posters at the Justice store in Los Angeles on Saturday (February 14).
At the event, Simon shared with JJJ, “It was great to see all the different people who were excited about the movie; teenagers, little kids, parents (who seemed just as excited as their children).”
“Then they brought out a cake for Vic‘s birthday, which totally surprised her,” Simon added. “And we also got to take a very deserving girl named Cookie (pink shirt) on a shopping spree afterward. She’s survived leukemia multiple times, and it was really amazing to do something special for such a courageous, inspiring person. All in all, it was the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day.”
Spectaular! premieres TOMORROW NIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
Simon Curtis is ready to premiere his new movie-musical, Spectacular!, on Nickelodeon and he just put up some new behind-the-scenes vids on his YouTube!
The up and coming actor says on his MySpace, “I am in the process of sharing several of my exclusive, behind-the-scenes sneak peaks (i.e. during the shoot I just handed my camcorder to Victoria‘s [Justice] mom and had her tape whatever she was able to). I just posted the first two today, and there will definitely be more tomorrow.”
Spectacular! premieres THIS Monday, February 16th @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.

Simon even pimped out Avan‘s other Nick flick, Gym Teacher. “There’s something else that comes out on February 3rd. Gym Teacher starring the one-and-only Avan Jogia. This is a very special moment for us because it’s my first time ever to have a CD in stores.”

Simon wrote in his MySpace about his late night, “What’s up everybody, up waaay too late here and thought I’d take a sec before bed to share this clip I just posted on YouTube with you all. Vic, Avan, Andrea and I all got together tonight and hit up Tower.com to show everyone some never-before-heard (and a couple of before-heard, ha) Spectacular! soundtrack snippets.
“Anyway, we had a ton of fun (not like it’d be possible for us not to, I swear the four of us have the best time imaginable when we are together), and laughed like crazy, all while sharing some of our favorite songs, memories, and moments from the movie. So what are you waiting for? Check it out! —s”
