We got the chance to see a rough cut of the new Victorious music video for “Beggin’ On Your Knees” today, and it looks really fun. Victoria Justice, Avan Jogia, Daniella Monet, Elizabeth Gillies, and the rest of the cast run around at a carnival, but also get into a little mischief — set to a surprisingly catchy song. You’ll get your chance to see the whole thing when it premieres tomorrow night at 9:45 p.m. on Nickelodeon, but a video snippet went up on E! Online yesterday.
Most of the action takes place at a carnival, much like the Degrassi season 10 promo that came out last summer. But whereas in “Shark in the Water” the kids from Degrassi High play circus performers and other behind-the-scenes characters — fire breathers, fortune tellers, kissing booth attendants — Tori Vega is enjoying the carnival with her friends, and the boy she likes. Unfortunately, he’s got his eye on another girl, taking her to all of the same spots he went to with Tori. (The part with them on the beach looks straight out of “Sandcastles in the Sand,” for any How I Met Your Mother fans.)
On Saturday, April 2, Justice will perform “Beggin’ On Your Knees” on Countdown to Kids’ Choice, a one-hour special prior to the 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards hosted by Jack Black. Right after the show at 9:30 p.m. will be a new episode of Victorious, with the same title as the song, where Tori gets teamed up with the hottest guy in school to perform at the Full Moon Jam but is worried about his intentions. So, the video matches up pretty nicely in terms of theme.
You can buy the “Beggin’ On Your Knees” single from the iTunes store on Tuesday, April 5. Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow night for the world premiere of the music video!
