Make It Shine is the theme song for the Nickelodeon television program Victorious. It is the first song performed on the show, with a longer version in the Pilot sung by Tori Vega, played by Victoria Justice. It was written by Dan Schneider, Michael Corcoran, and Lukasz Gottwald.[1]

In the show

In the Pilot, the song was written by André Harris and originally meant to be performed by Trina in "The Big Showcase." When Trina had an allergic reaction to a Chinese Herb Gargle, Trina's sister, Tori, is volunteered by André to sing in her place. Tori performs the song spectacularly, much to everyone's surprise since she never showed signs of her talent before. The principal offers her the chance to go to school at Hollywood Arts, which she accepts.

In the episode Survival of the Hottest, to get their minds off their entrapment in Beck's RV, Tori leads her friends in a performance of the song, but is interrupted when Cat returns from her exploits.

For the crossover episode iParty with Victorious, the song was combined with iCarly's theme song, "Leave It All to Me", to become "Leave It All To Shine", sung by the main cast members of both shows.

Tori and André also sing a remix of "Make It Shine" in the season 2 episode Helen Back Again, when Helen, the new Hollywood Arts principal, makes every student re-audition to see if they deserve their place.

In The Breakfast Bunch, Tori sings "Make It Shine" off-key to distract Mr. Dickers from her friends.

In real life

Make It Shine is sung by Victoria Justice and is co-written by Micheal Corcoran, Lukasz Gottwald ("Dr Luke"), and Dan Schneider. It is featured as the lead single on the first Victorious Soundtrack. The single, which was released on March 13, 2010, is also available on iTunes.

Lyrics

Here I am
Once again
Feeling lost but now and then
I breathe it in
To let it go
And you don't know
Where you are now
Or what it would come to
If only somebody could hear
When you figure out how
You're lost in the moment
You disappear

You don't have to be afraid
To put your dreams in action
You're never gonna fade
You'll be the main attraction
Not a fantasy
Just remember me
When it turns out right
'Cause you know that if you live in
Your imagination
Tomorrow you'll
Be everybody's fascination
In my victory
Just remember me
When I make it shine

Reaching high feeling low
I'm holding on and letting go
I like to shine I'll shine for you
And it's time to
Show the world how
It's a little bit closer
As long as I'm ready to go
All we have is right now
As long as you feel it inside, you know

You don't have to be afraid
To put your dreams in action
You're never gonna fade
You'll be the main attraction
Not a fantasy
Just remember me
When it turns out right
'Cause you know that if you live in
Your imagination
Tomorrow you'll
Be everybody's fascination
In my victory
Just remember me
When I make it shine

Everyone can tell you how
It's all been said and done (whoa)
That harder times can change your mind
And make you wanna run
But you want it
And you need it
Like you need to breathe the air
If they doubt you
Just believe it
That's enough to get you there

You don't have to be afraid
To put your dream in action
Your never gonna fade
You'll be the main attraction
Not a fantasy
Just remember me
When it turns out right
'Cause you know that if you live in
Your imagination
Tomorrow you'll
Be everybody's fascination
In my victory
Just remember me
When I make it shine

Here I am
Once again
Feeling lost but now and then
I breathe it in
To let it go
And you don't know
Where you are now
Or what it would come to
If only somebody could hear
When you figure out how
You're lost in the moment
You disappear

You don't have to be afraid
To put your dreams in action
You're never gonna fade
You'll be the main attraction
Not a fantasy
Just remember me
When it turns out right
'Cause you know that if you live in
Your imagination
Tomorrow you'll
Be everybody's fascination
In my victory
Just remember me
When I make it shine

Here I am
Once again
Feeling lost but now and then
I breathe it in
To let it go
And you don't know
Where you are now
Or what it would come to
If only somebody could hear
When you figure out how
You're lost in the moment
You disappear

You don't have to be afraid
To put your dreams in action
You're never gonna fade
You'll be the main attraction
Not a fantasy
Just remember me
When it turns out right
'Cause you know that if you live in
Your imagination
Tomorrow you'll
Be everybody's fascination
In my victory
Just remember me
When I make it shine

You don't have to be afraid
