News spread this weekend that "Victorious," the Nickelodeon series starring Victoria Justice has been canceled after three seasons. With just a few episodes left to air, those will be the last for Tori and the gang at Hollywood Arts. And this comes just weeks following receiving three Emmy nods for the series and a few months after the show took home a Kids' Choice Award in March for Favorite TV Show and Justice won for Favorite TV actress.
Justice tweeted about the news saying, "3 Emmy nominations is not a bad send off "#GoingOutOnTop #LoveUguys." So what will Victoria Justice do now? Here are a few ideas.
Focus on Her Singing Career
Since the debut of "Victorious," Justice has released nine singles for the show and also recorded some songs for the soundtrack of "Spectacular," a Nickelodeon musical. But the singer has yet to release a project not tied to the network. She is currently wrapping up a summer concert tour with a few last shows on the East Coast in Massachusetts and Philadelphia and has announced that she is recording a debut album due to drop sometime in the fall 2012. But no details as of yet.
Focus on Her Feature Film Career
If further TV projects don't pan out for the actress, she can keep working on her feature film career. In the upcoming new movie, "Fun Size," she plays Chelsea Handler's daughter, who loses her kid brother on a night of trick-or-treating gone bad. One of Justice's few forays into the non-Nickelodeon world could open up the world to the young actress. Plus, one suggestion to casting directors out there. Don't you think Justice should be cast to play Nina Dobrev's sister in some coming of age film? The two could be related.
Go to College
In "Fun Size" her character plans to go to college at NYU. But in real life Justice told The Huffington Post, "I'm so busy I don't have any time to think about college right now. I feel like maybe down the road I might take online college courses in subjects I'm interested in like English and psychology." It seems like she could squeeze higher education into her schedule now.
Team Up with 'iCarly's' Miranda Cosgrove
As soon as news hit of the "Victorious" cancellation, the idea hit like a ton of bricks. Justice should team up with fellow Nickelodeon star Miranda Cosgrove, who's show "iCarly" was also recently axed. Apparently the notion is not that far-fetched considering there is a pilot in the works with Cosgrove's co-star Jennette McCurdy and Justice's co-star Ariana Grande. So why not bring Tori and Carly together, too?
Maybe Justice doesn't have the as much clout in the music industry as a Britney Spears or a a Nick Jonas, but there's still at least one empty spot on the "American Idol" judges' panel and the players seem to be getting younger and younger. She could bring that teen perspective to freshen up the show .
