Last night I had quite a time at the Miranda Cosgrove concert with my 8- and almost 10-year old daughters, Ella and Julia - joined by almost 6,000 other extremely excited girls and boys at the show.
I asked them to write something about their experiences, and here you go--two reviews below, as well as some amazing photos taken by Robert Boag at the show last night. Enjoy!
Hi, I’m Ella (pictured right in yellow shirt) and I want to tell you about my amazing night at Wolf Trap. Last night I had a great time there ‘cause I went to the Filene Center to see Miranda Cosgrove perform live. She was amazing! She played songs from her new album “Dancing Crazy.”
Her opener Greyson Chance was amazing, too--he’s only 13 years old! He was found on YouTube singing "Paparazzi,” and now he’s singing at Wolf Trap! He sang “Paparazzi” and told the crowd to sing along.
After he was finished singing Miranda Cosgrove came out! The crowd started cheering. I loved the concert. The last song was “Dancing Crazy,” and the crowd could sing along. Then she played what she said were her three favorite songs from her iPod (recorded by other artists) over the sound system and had the crowd sing along.
I had a great time so whoever is reading this should GO TO WOLF TRAP!!!

The Miranda Cosgrove show at Wolf Trap was completely different from her TV show "iCarly." At Monday night’s show at the Filene Center, Miranda performed songs, not jokes. She sang accompanied by a band that included guitars and drums. There were a lot of dancers on stage who were totally high energy.
At one point, Miranda said to the audience, “Let me hear those girls.” All the girls in the audience screamed, and Miranda said, “Wow, that’s a lot of girls!” Then she sang “I’m Just a Girl.”
One of the most interesting things to me was when Miranda played three songs by other pop stars from her iPod over the loudspeakers. The first was Pink’s “So What if I’m a Rock Star.” Then she played Britney Spears’s “Dancing ‘Til the World Ends,” and Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You.” She told us all to sing along. It was really cool to find out what Miranda Cosgrove listens to—that she’s a star but a fan, too
Miranda’s last song was “Dancing Crazy,” which is also the title of her new album. Everybody really liked that song, and she invited kids from the audience up on stage. She hugged many of those who went up.
I really liked the show, and I really like Wolf Trap. Everybody should go there.
