Miranda Sings is an Internet character created in 2008 by American comedian, actress and singer Colleen Ballinger. Ballinger displays videos of the comically talentless, egotistical and quirky character on her YouTube channel under the username mirandasings08. On these videos, the character sings badly, discusses current events that she often misunderstands, gives “tutorials” and rants about her critics, the “haters”. Ballinger created the character as a satire of the many bad but egotistical singers who believe that posting their videos on YouTube will lead to them breaking into show business. Miranda is also featured on a second YouTube channel, mirandavlogz. As of June 2014, the main Miranda YouTube channel had surpassed 125 million views and 1.4 million subscribers.
Beginning in 2009, in addition to her internet videos, Ballinger has regularly performed cabaret acts, in character as Miranda Sings, at cabaret spaces and theaters in New York, London, and other cities in the U.S., Canada, Australia and elsewhere. Her acts include Miranda’s signature off-key singing of show tunes and pop music hits, with introductions focusing on the character’s backstory and full of malapropisms and spoonerisms; the acts often incorporate giving a “voice lesson” to, or singing a duet with, Broadway or other musical celebrities, reading hate mail directed to the character, and singing while being stabbed through the neck in her “magic trick”. The character has appeared in various internet interviews and web series, and in a 2012 episode of the TV show Victorious.

It was a cold winters day on december 24 when I was borned. My mom always new I would be a singer because when I was cut out of her stomach i cried. I was homeschooled my whole life and won a lot of tonys for my musicals in my backyard. In 2008 I decided the world should no how famous I am so I put my videos online. Now I tour all over the world performing for my mirfandas. I have millions of views online and have performed in Australia, London, Ireland, Canada, New York City, Hollywood, and of course Pennsilvania. I love my mirfandas!
