The 'thank u, next' video will feature a 'Victorious' reunion...
It hasn't even come out yet but it looks like Ariana Grande's 'thank u, next' visual could be one of the standout music videos of 2018. First things first, the song is huge (it's reached Number 1 in the US, UK and around the world), then there's the fact the video is set to reference Legally Blonde, Bring It On, 13 Going On 30 and Mean Girls (iconic) and last, but not least, the cast is all kinds of incredible (eek).
Taking to social media, Ariana has already confirmed just a few of the big names set to feature in the highly anticipated new visual. Jennifer Coolidge will star as Paulette in the Legally Blonde scenes, Victoria Monet and Coleen Ballinger are both on board for Bring It On and Jonathan Bennett will be reprising the role of Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls. Not to mention, there will be a Victorious reunion.
Which 'Victorious' stars are in Ariana Grande's 'thank u, next' video?
It's so far been revealed that two Victorious cast members are joining Ariana in the 'thank u, next' video. Liz Gillies (Jade) will be taking on the role of the one and only Cady Heron in the Mean Girls segment of the new visual and Daniella Monet (Trina) will be starring in the Bring it On segment. Amazing. We are beyond ready to see our Nickelodeon queens get back on the small screen.
However, as it stands there is no evidence to suggest that Victoria Justice (the star of Victorious) will be in it. If so, she would be the only main female cast member from Victorious not in the 'thank u, next' video. There could be many different reasons for this but fans are now speculating that Victoria may not be in the video because she and Ariana and Victoria have beef.
Are Ariana and Grande and Victoria Justice in a feud?

This seems unlikely because Victoria cleared this up a year ago when a meme of her saying "I think we're ALL singers" went viral. She tweeted: "I think we ALL have better things 2 do than dredging up 7 yr old non-existent drama. That said, Im kind of excited to finally be a meme". So that clears that up. We imagine if she's not in it, it's due to scheduling conflicts or Ari is just closer to Liz and Daniella.
That being said there is still a chance that she could be in the 'thank u, next' video and she and Ariana are keeping it secret for when the visual comes out. Ariana hasn't revealed the entire cast of the video, plus there are rumours that some of the Victorious boys will be in it too. 'thank u, next' is due to come out on Friday so we will find out in mere days.
