Victoria Justice Covers The Jackson 5 Classic, “I Want You Back”


If you don’t have a teen or tween living in your household, chances are you’re not familiar with Victoria Justiceyet. The 18 year-old is the latest in a long line of multi-hyphenates to emerge from Nickelodeon universe, thanks to her acting work on the sitcom that bears her name, Victorious, as well as her burgeoning music career. Her perky pop song, “Best Friend’s Brother,” has been bubbling up in the Billboard Hot 100 and iTunes charts for most of the summer, and now her cover of The Jackson 5 classic “I Want You Back” seems poised to make an appearance on more than a few playlists on the iPods of the millenial set. The cover was the focal point of this past weekend’s one-hour movie special, Victorious: Locked Up (hence the orange jumpsuits in the video), and the Victorious soundtrack hits stores today.

    She’s cute and all, and we watch her show every week in my household. But no one – more or less her – has the right to remake any Jackson 5/Michael Jackson song. The Jackson’s were one of a kind artists and their music needs to remain theirs and theirs alone. Sorry everyone but that’s just my opinion……

    She copied “I want you back” from the Jackson 5 probably because she either couldnt figure out a new song or she thought people forgot that song. Unless she wanted to make another one that has a diffrent song
