This Saturday, July 14th, Universal Studio’s Summer Concert Series is welcoming Miranda Cosgrove to the stage. Cosgrove was one of the stars of the 2010 summer blockbuster film Despicable Me, which is the all-new ride at Universal Studios Florida. Ride the ride and relive the movie, then head over to the Music Plaza stage to see the voice of Margo in concert.
Miranda Cosgrove is the star of the Emmy-nominated Nickelodeon show iCarly. She has been nominated for “Best TV Actress” at the Kids’ Choice Awards, as well as “Choice TV Actress” at the Teen Choice Awards. She has appeared in other popular films, including School of Rock with Jack Black. She is also scheduled to reprise her role of Margo in Despicable Me 2 in 2013.
Cosgrove released her first album, Sparks Fly, in 2010. The CD reached #8 on the Billboard chart, and featured the single “Kissin U.” Cosgrove has released a five-song extended play as well as original songs on iCarly soundtracks. At 8:00 p.m. on July 14th, you can catch Miranda live at Universal Studios.
Before the show, spend the day enjoying all of the rides, shows and other attractions at the park, especially the new Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride. This interactive ride puts you in the role of one of the minions, sending you through “minion training,” launching you on a trip through Gru’s super-villain laboratory and giving you the chance to show your moves in a minion-inspired dance party. You’ll join Gru, Margo, Edith and Agnes on this 3-D ride, through twists and turns and unexpected surprises.
If you were one of the many who loved the movie, you’ll love the ride as well. Then, catch up with one of the stars as she takes the stage in an incredible concert event. Universal Studio’s Summer Concert Series draws to an end with the Miranda Cosgrove performance this Saturday, and you won’t want to miss your final chance to hear the great talent. Admission to the concert is free with your park ticket.
While you’re in Orlando, stay at the Quality Inn & Suites at Universal Studios, just a mile and a half away from the park, or the Doubletree Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando.
