On June 12th, 2013, Jennette McCurdy arrived at NBC to be a guest star on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for the first time. However, they previously had met and random danced together during a special iCarly episode, iShock America, on the previous year.
It was a special interview for Jennette because she had loved him ever since she was six years old. During the show, Jennette mentioned that she still hangs with Miranda Cosgrove regularly (3 times a week on average). She talks about her future plans for her 21st birthday which involved renting a party bus with her friends and travel to Las Vegas. Jennette also mentioned that she plans to check out many Cirque Du Soleil shows, including the brand new Michael Jackson ONE show. She also shared a story of her encounter with Tina Fey, which unfortunately could not have met her during the Kids Choice Awards. Towards the end of the show, they talked about her successful double spinoff show Sam & Cat and showed a preview from the pilot episode.
Jimmy also selected some of Jennette’s tweets to read aloud to the audience which he said made him laugh.
Every time “sounds good” autocorrects to “sounds food” I leave it because food is better than good.
Whenever I hear something rustle in my bedroom I go, “Narnia?”
So excited to be on @jimmyfallon tomorrow!! I’m gonna pee!!!!! (Not from excitement. I just have to pee.) ;)
Prior to the show, Jennette used the official @LateNightJimmy Instagram account to take some behind the scenes photos which can be seen below:
After the interview taping, Jimmy Fallon tweeted a reply back to Jennette, offering an open door invitation to come back to the show.
“@jennettemccurdy: Who’s gonna watch @jimmyfallon tonight?! I had the best time on it!” Come back whenever. We love you.
To which Jennette enthusiastically replied with:
.@jimmyfallon great, see you tomorrow! :P. (for real though, thank you for the warm welcome & fun)
