Jennette McCurdy has been one busy lady! She recently served as the celebrity mentor and emcee for the 2013 Kidz Star USA Grand Finale Event held at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California.

CTS: What is your favorite part about being a celebrity mentor?
Jennette: “It’s so great mentoring the kids. The kids are really talented and I love competitions that encourage kids to work hard and follow their dreams. It’s wonderful to know that people are looking to you for some sort of words of advice. It also helps you give yourself advice in the process.”
CTS: What are the most important aspects you’re focusing on in judging this competition?
Jennette: “Just seeing who naturally likes what they’re doing and who is enjoying every second of it. There is no need to be here if you are not loving everything about it.”

Jennette: “I love throwing on a pair of jeans, pumps, and a basic shirt, like what I am wearing today. I love an outfit that is simple and can’t be messed up…I feel like once I get too many elements in an outfit, I completely ruin it. It’s all about keeping it clean and fresh.”
