Biography

The success of Miley Cyrus in the new millennium paved the way for a handful of young stars to try to steal away her teen idol crown. Among the heirs to the throne included soft-spoken and precocious Miranda Cosgrove, who starred on Nickelodeon's "Drake & Josh" (2004-07) and "iCarly" (2007- ). On the latter, Cosgrove portrayed Carly Shay, a teen who produces her own Internet show from her attic. On April 2008, Columbia Records signed the rising star, making her a bona fide recording artist after the release of the "iCarly" soundtrack that same year. The show's theme song and album's first single, "Leave it All to Me" charted on the Billboard Hot 100. With her success on television followed by the music business as well - plus possessing an irresistible girl-next-door quality - it was no wonder Cosgrove gave Cyrus and the other Disney princesses a run for their money.
