Jade Gets Crushed is the 11th episode of Victorious Season 2 and the 31st episode overall. It aired on October 8, 2011 to 3.4 million viewers.
André wants Tori to help him record a song for a class, however, she's busy trying to get into a class, and Jade is the only other female vocalist he can find - Cat is simply just bouncing around on her Jupiter Boots laughing. He confesses to Beck that he is scared of her, just as she comes running in, threatening to kill Sinjin and throws her scissors at the wall because Sinjin sat on her new scissors. At first, he's nervous about working with her, but she's nice to him and he starts to trust her more. When he can't think of the lyrics to the song, Jade sings a song recorded in 2005 by Backhouse Mike called Okay, and he becomes attracted to her, because she looks and sounds so beautiful when she sings. André goes over to Tori's house in the middle of the night, practically crying because he's so stressed about the situation. He asked Tori for hot cocoa, although she hesitated at first, but hurried to make one for him when she heard about his crush on Jade. He says he's good friends with Beck, and doesn't want him to know that he's in love with his girlfriend, but he has a lot of trouble keeping his feelings a secret. Tori assures him that he's just over-tired and emotional, and he'll probably forget about it the next day, and he agrees.
The next day, Beck and Jade walk up to André (and Tori), and Jade wants to hear the song. He's terrified to reveal his feelings for her, so he rushes away, saying he'll just email her the song. Tori, realizing he still hasn't overcome his crush, invites him over and dresses up like Jade. She acts like Jade and insults him, trying to show him how mean Jade really is. Instead of being upset by this, he almost leans in to kiss her because she looks so much like Jade.
André confesses to Tori that he stayed up all night, writing a song called "365 Days" for Jade. Tori believes that if he performs the song for her, he will be able to express his feelings and get over his crush. To hide the fact that the song is for Jade, and to avoid upsetting Beck, he replaces her name with the word "Baby," and Tori says that he wrote it for his dog. At the end of the song, Jade hugs André.
Tori asks if it worked, and he says it may take some time. However, a girl comes up to him asking to hang out, and André begins to forget about Jade.
Tori wants to take an R&B vocals class, but she must first pass the Tech Theater exam, and only has three days to study. Robbie tries to help Tori prepare for her Tech Theater test by teaching her how to use tech equipment and practicing with her using cutouts of Cat (which she finds out about by "bouncing" into the room while they are practicing). However, Tori ends up being so good at it, she ends up getting a perfect score on her test, and not only did she pass the test but she also got the highest record for Tech Theater Top Student, beating Robbie's record for Tech Theater Top Student.
Cat wears Jupiter Boots and constantly bounces around, laughing throughout the whole episode.
- Cat wears Jupiter Boots and constantly bounces around, giggling.
- André being wonky about Jade.
- People saying "dang girl" to Tori (while she is impersonating Jade).
- Absent: Daniella Monet as Trina Vega. This is her second and last absence this season, and her 6th one overall.
- This episode impacts the Jandré relationship.
- Most notably, the Jandreck friendship was also on the line.
- This is the second time Jade's name is used in a title, the first being Jade Dumps Beck.
- This is the third time one character on the show has dressed up as another character (the first being Cat as Sikowitz and the second being Beck dressing as Tori, both in Beck Falls for Tori).
- If you look closely at a part in the promo for this episode, the clips are actually from Pilot, when Tori and Jade are playing Alphabet Improv.
- This is the 4th time André and Tori have sung a duet.
- André is the third, and last, person to have feelings for Jade, the first being Beck and the second being Sinjin.
- In the scene where Robbie helps Tori practice for their examining in the Blackbox Theater, she is wearing the same striped shirt she wore in Prom Wrecker when she was organizing plans for prome.
- This is the first time where Jade has a solo (albeit a very brief one).
- This is the first and only time that Jade and André write a song together.
- This is the second time the words "wonk" and "wonky" were used. The first was in The Great Ping Pong Scam by Tori.
- This is the first time Spaghetti Tacos have been mentioned on Victorious, as they have been mentioned and seen numerous times on iCarly.
- The headphones that Jade wears are Beats headphones.
- The red robot Beck is taking photos of is the one from another one of Dan's shows, "Drake and Josh". Dan confirmed this via Twitter: "Who recognized Beck's red ROBOT from @Victorious tonight? It's the ACTUAL ROBOT I used in an episode of Drake & Josh 4 or 5 years ago!" It's from the episode "The Drake and Josh INN". It was the Mexican Robot that Drake bought.
- When Jade sings for André, she is actually singing part of a real-life song called Okay. It's the same song that Tori and Ryder sang in Beggin' on Your Knees.
- André says that he replaced all of the "Jade's" in the song with "baby". However, "Jade" only has one syllable while "baby" has two. Therefore "baby" would not fit unless André changed the song a bit. However, some fans speculate that Jade's full name is Jadelyn, so he could have used her full name in the original, even though no one calls her Jadelyn in the show.
- In the promo for the episode, Tori is shown saying "Here's my back, get off it!" For some reason, that line was cut from the episode. It was probably due to time.
- During the end credits, Rex sings the ending of the Drake and Josh theme song.
- Ending tagline: André: Ooh, it's all tingly.
- In her cutouts, Cat is wearing the same outfit she wore at the beginning of Beck Falls for Tori (sans her pink cardigan).
- This is the third time in Dan's shows that a character has had a cardboard cutout of someone (possibly a crush). The first time was when Josh had a cutout of Oprah (Drake and Josh). The second was when Ms. Briggs had a cutout of Randy Jackson (iCarly).
- A blooper from Blooptorious revealed that Liz Gillies pranked Victoria Justice and Leon Thomas during the scene where André tries to kiss Tori as Jade. Also, a blooper is shown where Jade throws her bent scissors in anger but it hits a violin case instead of the wall.
- This is the third time Beck has kissed Jade on the cheek (the first being in the Pilot and the second in The Diddly-Bops).
- This is the first time Tori and Jade do not interact in an episode.
- In this episode, Tori is in both the main plot and the subplot.
- After André was about to kiss Tori while she was dressed as Jade, André says 'Willy Wonky!', might be a reference to Willy Wonka.
- When this episode first aired in the UK, the episode cut off just as Jade was about to sing and jumped forward to Tori letting André in her house at three in the morning. This has been fixed now, however.
- The events of this episode were referenced in Tori Fixes Beck and Jade.
- The promo for this episode suggested quite a different plot than was shown. The previews suggested that Jade would become even worse than she usually is, prompting Tori to copy her as a way to show Jade how awful and irritating everyone finds her.
- This is the last episode where both Holly Vega and David Vega appear in the same episode, although they did not appear together.
- When Cat bounces up to Beck and is talking to him, you can see André and Robbie walk around the corner towards Tori, however, when the camera cuts to Tori, they come around the corner again.
- André outright tells Beck that Jade scares him and that she's not the right girl for the song yet, for some reason, recruited her to replace Tori. It is possible that Jade, as is her character, simply decided that she would be doing it without André's consent to prove that she's a better choice for the song than Tori.
- When Jade throws her bent scissors to the "Instrument Use is a Privilege" sign, it disappears in the wide-shot, but reappears when André is writing the chorus.
- It looks as if Beck should have kissed Jade, but missed and got her cheek instead, because not only was the kiss awkward, but Jade went for his mouth. This scene could have been kept because they stayed in character.
- During the scene where Tori is acting like Jade, the position of the pillows keep switching around.
- Robbie said that Tori's time on her test was 28 seconds. In reality, it was 48 seconds.
- André says he says swapped the word "Jade" for "baby." "Baby" however has two syllables while "Jade" only has one.
- Interestingly, André is shown to have fallen in love with Jade due to her singing voice despite having heard her sing before in Part 1 of Freak the Freak Out, The Diddly-Bops, and Locked Up! Possibly justified as Tori suspects that André is not actually in love with Jade, but merely convinced himself that he is on account of his insomnia and volatile emotions.
The episode received mixed reviews. While it was praised for its solid comedy, the main criticisms were that it differed from expectations, but more importantly, its highly abrupt ending. It had 3.4 million viewers.
