Movie Features Special Victorious Cast Cover of Jackson 5 Classic, "I Want You Back", and Brand-New Original Song, "All I Want is Everything;" Both Tracks Available on First-Ever Soundtrack, Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show, In-Stores August 2

NEW YORK, NY - July 15, 2011 - A free exotic vacation goes awry when Tori and the Hollywood Arts gang get thrown in prison and must rely on their musical talents to escape, in Nickelodeon's brand-new hour-long Victorious movie, "Locked Up!", premiering Saturday, July 30, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). "Locked Up!" features two songs: "All I Want is Everything" by the Victorious cast featuring Victoria Justice and produced by Grammy Award winner and Columbia artist Raphael Saadiq; and a special choreographed performance and cover of the Jackson 5 classic, "I Want You Back." Both tracks appear on the first-ever soundtrack album, Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show, in-stores Tuesday, August 2.

In "Locked Up!," Semester Break looks bleak until Tori (Justice) gets everyone a free vacation to Yerba. The destination is a tourist nightmare and things go from bad to worse when Tori accidentally assaults the Chancellor of the country. The kids try to free Tori from prison, but end up imprisoning themselves in the process. The Chancellor grants Tori and her friends one prison performance, but will it be good enough to free them?

Leading up to the July 30 premiere, Nickelodeon will debut a new music video of "I Want You Back," with the Victorious cast featuring Victoria Justice. Nickelodeon's multi-platform efforts include sneak peeks and promotional behind-the-scenes content that will stream on Nick.com as well as Nick's wireless partners. Additionally, Victorious "Locked Up!" will also be made available for download in HD on iTunes, Amazon, Sony and Xbox. TheSlap.com will also host a Victorious "Locked Up" game which will feature video highlights and photo galleries from the episode. The movie will be made available on Nickelodeon's video-on-demand the day after premiere.

In addition to the two songs in "Locked Up!," Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show (Columbia Records/Nickelodeon) will include the hit singles "Best Friend's Brother," "Beggin' On Your Knees" and gold-certified "Freak the Freak Out," along with the series theme song "Make It Shine." The combined sales of all four singles have accounted for sales of over 1.3 million units. The CD, consisting of 12 tracks, will also feature music by castmates Elizabeth Gillies, Ariana Grande and Leon Thomas III. Also new for fans, Nickelodeon exclusively launched the first products from Victorious at Walmart stores in the U.S. and Canada with more than 250 Victorious-themed products, including apparel, accessories, entertainment, and school supplies, during a special back-to-school program running from July to September 2011.

The Emmy-nominated series, Victorious, now in the middle of its second season, is the number-one program in its timeslot on all TV reaching 14.4 million kids, 15.1 million tweens, and 11.4 million teens each quarter. For May 2011, Victorious was the #1 series for teens and tweens and the #2 series for kids (behind only SpongeBob SquarePants) across all of TV.
