The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, portrayed by Victoria Justice, who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts. When it premiered on March 27, 2010 to 5.7 million viewers, it was the highest-rated premiere for a live action series in Nickelodeon history.

Victoria performed this song in the 2010 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
