Miranda Cosgrove Is “Dancing Crazy” On Her Avril Lavigne-Written Track


While Justin Bieber has teamed up with other underage sensation, Willow Smith, Miranda Cosgrove will be hitting the road with 13-year old wunderkind Greyson Chance on a 21-city tour across North America. (Teen power — and fanbases — unite!) They’re calling it the Dancing Crazy tour, named after Miranda’s bouncy new track. It’s produced by the almighty Max Martin, and written by Martin, Shellback, and Avril Lavigne (who also co-wrote the song “Daydream” on Cosgrove’s debut LP, Sparks Fly). Can the iCarly actress let loose? Give “Dancing Crazy” a listen below.

Poppy! Fun! Kinda 80s Bananarama-ish! The “You! Me! In the spotlight!” bit in particular sounds like “Girlfriend”-esque Avril, not to mention the low-key guitar on the bridge.

We’re guessing this tune didn’t make the cut of Lavigne’s upcoming album Goodbye Lullaby and Miranda snatched up her scraps. Still, even as leftovers, it’s a pretty tasty track and much like she did with Ke$ha’s “Disgusting“, Miranda can pull it off. For a song called “Dancing Crazy”, though, a bit more musical lunacy — or maybe one extra beat speeding it along — would have been nice to elevate it to something resembling insanity.

Check out when Miranda and Greyson will be dancing relatively crazy through your town here.

    Hey girl! If you don’t like Miranda just get away from sites like this! You don’t need to say those things about her. Everyone has his own opinion but yours is unacceptable. You didn’t need to be so rude! I love Miranda Cosgrove and I think she’s great but I’m not walking threw the street saying everyone who don’t like her is stupid! She’s great and she sings very well, and for the other who said that avril lavigne would sing this song better, well, she wrote it but it’s Miranda song, and it’s fantastic. Miranda Cosgrove, you’re my heroin. I love you…. I ♥ YOU! And as other people, I rather thing Miranda’s fat! She’s slim, she has a simpathetic in some way fatty face but she’s not fa and she’s very beautiful!

    I love you Miranda! I am going to marry you!!! Oh, and I’ll even take your last name as my own :)

  • Ashley

    I’d like to Avril sing this. Since she c-wrote it and all. It’s more one of those songs that you’d probably hear her singing not Miranda.

  • Lexi

    Miranda is so totally pretty, but I dont like how they whitened the “Dancing Crazy” photo, its not very flatering, and I can hardly see her nose.
