Those who contend that Jennette is the most talented of the iCarly cast will find that this episode makes a very strong case in favor of that point. She nails her role as the obnoxious and dowdy best friend of the lead character, but when given a chance to break away from that, Jennette's natural beauty and talent come to the forefront.

Big difference when Jennette is not wearing her character's customary T-shirt and jeans
You'd think that the script would have Jennette sing, which she does very well, but instead she does a dance routine straight out of the musicals of the '40's and '50s. Who knew that she could dance that good? But it's not the dance moves I'm focused on....
Sourced from the Nickelodeon 1080i HDTV transport stream feed, but to keep file sizes within reason for the bandwidth-impaired, both files have been encoded in 720p, with only the talent contest clip also being offered in 1080i
Semi retired for now....
Not to take anything away from Miranda because she is hot and talented too, but I agree Jennette could very easily carry her own show as well. I doubt Nick will ever give her a chance because she might upstage thier flagship performer Miranda.
