"iParty with Victorious" is a 2011 three-part crossover episode of iCarly and Victorious. Although it is a crossover, the episode only counts as an iCarly episode. The episode aired on June 11, 2011, at 8/7c. It premiered in Los Angeles on June 4, 2011, and was released on DVD on August 30, 2011. The crossover's theme song mash-up, "Leave It All To Shine", premiered on May 22, 2011 on Nickelodeon and was online (YouTube) on June 7, 2011. The episode was watched by 7.3 million viewers. It also marked Kenan Thompson's brief return to Nickelodeon. iParty With Victorious was released on the 3rd season DVD of iCarly and on the second Volume of Victorious' first season DVD. The normal length version was released on both DVD sets.
Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) is dating a boy named Steven Carson (Cameron Deane Stewart), who divides his time between his divorced parents in Seattle and Los Angeles. Every other month, Steven goes off to Los Angeles, where he is dating another girl named Tori Vega (Victoria Justice), who attends Hollywood Arts, a high school for the performing arts. Robbie Shapiro (Matt Bennett), a socially awkward friend of Tori's, posts a picture of Steven and Tori online, which Carly stumbles upon. She initially denies the fact that Steven is cheating on her, but Sam (Jennette McCurdy) seeks to prove it is indeed true. She finds Rex, Robbie's ventriloquist dummy, has tweeted about a party held at Kenan Thompson's house, in Hollywood.
Spencer (Jerry Trainor) drives the group to Los Angeles, where Carly, Sam, Freddie (Nathan Kress), Gibby (Noah Munck), and Spencer visit Spencer's ex-girlfriend, Monie (Jen Lilley), who happens to be a skilled make-up artist, and receive disguise makeovers to avoid being noticed from iCarly by others. They then head off to the house of actor and comedian, Kenan Thompson, where Andre Harris (Leon Thomas III), another friend of Tori's, is hosting a party that they suspect Steven and Tori are attending. The iCarly members enter Kenan's party house during the party and split up in search of Steven. Spencer, meanwhile, relaxes in Kenan Thompson's jacuzzi and meets Sikowitz (Eric Lange), Beck (Avan Jogia) and Jade (Elizabeth Gillies). Much to her chagrin, Carly eventually catches Steven and watches him kiss Tori, before she admits Sam is correct about Steven cheating on her. Sinjinn Van Cleef (Michael Eric Reid) another student at Hollywood Arts falls into the jacuzzi when a surfing machine malfunctions.
The iCarly members remove their disguises, and Tori walks in and immediately recognizes them from iCarly. After explaining Steven's actions, Carly and Tori devise a plan to humiliate Steven for revenge. Steven is lured into a closet where he thinks he will make out with Tori. Instead, when he enters the closet, he finds himself on an iCarly webcast with Carly, Sam, Kenan, and Tori, who reveal to iCarly's one million audience members Steven had been dating both Carly and Tori at the same time. Steven becomes embarrassed and leaves. Then Sam beats Rex in a rap battle. Later, the iCarly cast joins Tori and her friends in karaoke, where they sing Leave It All to Shine.
Dan Schneider has confirmed that because of the success of the film, he decided to give Nickelodeon an uncut, 2-hour version of it which contains material the production team edited out after filming. It aired August 27, 2011.
The episode "iParty With Victorious" was confirmed as an iCarly movie, not a TV crossover probably because of the lowercase "i" in the title which appeared in all iCarly episodes known (ex."iPilot","iQuit iCarly","iOMG").
Victoria Justice appears in iCarly for the second time for iParty with Victorious. The first time she appeared in the series was in a previous television special iFight Shelby Marx. Sam also comments that Tori Vega looks like Shelby Marx, who was also played by Justice. Also making return appearances are Leon Thomas III (the first time he appeared in the series was in "iCarly Saves TV"), Daniella Monet (the first time she appeared in the series was in a previous television special iPsycho), and Lane Napper (the first time he appeared in the series was as Ernie, Sam's dancing instructor in "iWas a Pageant Girl").
The crossover special also marks Kenan Thompson's brief return to Nickelodeon. Thompson previously starred in the Nickelodeon shows, All That (which Dan Schneider has previously worked on) and Kenan & Kel.
The opening sequence features clips from "iParty with Victorious" only and credits the iCarly cast and Victoria Justice in the opening sequence while the rest of the Victorious cast are credited during the in-show credits. Kenan Thompson is mentioned during the ending credits.
While in Kenan Thompson's house, "The Joke Is On You" by Niki Watkins, "Give It Up" by Elizabeth Gillies and Ariana Grande, performed in the Victorious episode "Freak the Freak Out", and "Number One (My World)" by fictional Ginger Fox was played.
