'Victorious' Star Wants To Take On Adele, Bruno Mars

Leon Thomas III will perform an original song on an upcoming episode of the hit Nickelodeon show.

Things at Hollywood Arts High School are certainly heating up on this season of Nickelodeon's hit show "Victorious." During the premiere episode, "The Breakfast Bunch," Victoria Justice and the rest of the cast paid homage to the 1985 classic "The Breakfast Club."

And it seems that the adventures are just beginning. Leon Thomas III, who plays Andre Harris, spoke exclusively to MTV News about why season three is the best "Victorious" yet.

"This season, just in general, I feel like we've come into our own as a cast, we've just gotten so comfortable with each other," Thomas said. "It's a whole new level of comedy. It's a little more random this season; we all love it. It kind of reminds us of the old-school Nick with 'All That' and 'The Amanda Show,' where reality was kind of suspended for a second and we got the chance to be the goofy people we truly are."

This month on "Victorious" marks a milestone for Thomas, who is set to perform his new original song, "Countdown," on the February 18 episode, "Andre's Horrible Girl."

"Andre dates this horrible person, she's just not a very nice girl, she's extremely mean to Andre and just cocky," Thomas said. "But the only reason that he's dating her is because her dad is a very famous producer and Andre wants her dad to hear his music, but at the end he feels pretty bad about it. It's a pretty good episode with a lot of twists and turns."

Thomas is set to perform "Countdown" alongside Justice. "It's just always cool singing with Vic," Thomas said. "We have such a great chemistry, our voices really blend well together. It's been great."

So now that Thomas is writing and performing his own songs, could we expect an album out from the Nickelodeon star? "I'm really hoping to have something out soon." Thomas revealed. "It's just really all about timing and making sure we have the right records. I've been in the studio working really hard making sure my sound is right, I want to come ready to compete with some of the greatest artists out right now like Bruno Mars, Adele, B.O.B. I want to be able to contend with the "now," really hit the pop charts proper."

Before we can see Thomas perform "Countdown," fans should be prepared for a "Victorious" break-up just in time for Valentine's Day. Spoilers ahead! On February 11's episode, "Worst Couple," Jade (played by Elizabeth Gillies) and Beck (played by Avan Jogia) break up after appearing on a dating show.
