Everyone on iCarly is hilarious. Great show to watch with or without the kids.

I'm sorry about your ankle Miranda, hope you feel better, but please stop singing! Your voice is horrible! It is almost as bad as Victoria's on that other lame Nick show. Whoever told you it was a good idea to sing probably is the same person who told Scott Baio to start singing when he became popular on Happy Days.

We just attended her concert over the weekend. She gives Miley Cyrus a run for her money! The adults had almost as good of time as the kids! She was really sweet with the audience, she sings very well, the production of the entire show is on point and exciting...all around good family fun. She is also a very beautiful young girl! If you can get out to see her, you won't be disappointed! For those who have been postponed it's worth the wait!

Miranda is not much of a singer, but her show(iCarly) was watchable for couple of seasons. Anyway, I wish her best. And by best I mean stop singing and "acting", go to college as she promised last year and figure out what she wants to do with her life.

Love Miranda. I know her mother and she has really kept her grounded and she is a very level headed young lady. I gaurantee she will not tun into a Miley or Britney. She has a huge future ahead of her.

I'm with Jack in wanting to be a part of a Miranda and Jennette sandwich. And if she needs a place to crash while she recouperates my bed is available.

bf made a very good statementm it's time for Miranda to go to college and get an education and not end up like all these other young Hollywood types that do not have one college credit.
The show is silly now and it's time for her to move on. She is 18 years old, the age of a college freshmen and they still have her dressing like and acting like a 13 year old on that show.

I am thankful for this for two reasons.

A. Everyone is more or less OK
B. I don't have to sit through her concert with my daughter on Saturday.

THERE IS A GOD.

My kids love that show. When they found out that it was her they wanted to go to Effingham Hospital and give her flowers. I think I broke thier hearts when I told them I had to go to work. We hope she is back up and going soon.
