What the hell?! That’s a joke! The original song nominees barely get a minute to perform their songs in a stupid medley, but Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are performing because they want some viewers? J-O-K-E.

You tweenybops will eat it up, though.

Does this man have a flaw?

LolaSvwlt:

Let’s try using our head for something other than a hat.

HSM3 is the one of the top grossing musical of all time and one of the top grossing movies of this year along with Mama Mia – both musicals. Theyy invited cthe young hollywood stars of both films probably at Baz Lurhmans request . IF the rumors are true and that is still an IF unti confirmed.

Also all nominated songs are performed in their entirety you’d know that if you even learn to pay attention

THat’s problem with people who are only interested in seeing their own opinion in print – they don’t think before they post.

LolaSwelt:

BTW the nominated songs have not been done in a medley in over 20 years–where have you been. Each song gets staged and performed

# 8

this should be fun!!!! people need to just quit being such negative nancys!!!! lol i agree with number 6

# 9

HSM3 is not nominated for ANY Oscar at the event. So there is no excuse for no talent Zac Efron and Vadgenessa Hudgens to be there!

What a joke for what’s supposed to be an award show taken seriously for them to even be there! What a slap in the face to those that actually have talent (Beyonce, Hugh Jackman, etc.) Then again, I’m not surprised. If the Jonas Brothers can massacre Stevie Wonder’s “Supersition” at the Grammys, I’m sure this can happen too! F *** Disney.

The producers have said they want to celebrate not just the nominees from last year, but other movies as well from last year. There’s apparently going to be some sort of “tribute” to movie genres, and perhaps this is the “musical” tribute. I’ve read there’s also going to be some sort of action movie tribute also.

What has the Oscars come to when the nights entertainment is the cast of High School Musical, classy real classy folks.

This show is gonna be flaming. I see the drag queen known as beyonce will be there but why? Miley. Zanessa? their fans cant even stay up past their bed time to watch the Oscars.

How hot does he look.
<3

Is Hugh rehershing by himself? Where are Zac and Vanessa? Dominic and Amanda?

Since HSM3 and Mama Mia were the BIGGEST gorssing musicals, I can believe they would be there singing something from the movies.

lmao:

Everyone stays up for the Oscars including kids and teenagers – let’s stop being silly.

Most of you are just jealous. like it or not HSM3 made a fortune and the academy is honoring not just nominated films.

Further all of you who are commenting (IN YOUR IGNORANCE!!!!) about Zac and vanessa not being talented well:

THey are laughing all the way to the bank
THey are invited to the Oscars

So your opinion means nothing to a whole lot of people including your own families which is why your so hateful.

you're kiddin', right? @ 02/18/2009 at 2:39 pm

Agree with #9. I mean, what the hell? Does superstar and super-talent Hugh Jackman need the support of Efron?!!? Jesus Christ!!! What are we comparing here? A Broadway, Tony & Emmy awarded, multi-talented performer with a temporary teen-star like Zac Efron? Are we comparing the Oklahoma!, Carousel, The Boy from Oz, Sunset Boulevard and Royal National Theatre star with the leading man of a movie like High School Musical?! Give me a break people! HSM is not West Side Story!!!

agree with #16 @ 02/18/2009 at 2:45 pm

I couldn’t agree more with you 16. Hugh Jackman should be alone doing what he knows to do best: sing, dance and entertain people. There is no reason to put next to his imposing figure (imposing not just due to his body but also talent) Zac Efron or his girlfriend.

I LOVE HIM!!!
Well… I’m from Russia, so the Oscar Ceremony would be in 4.00 a.m, and i will see it! I really believe Hugh will sing cause he enjoys it)))

Can’t wait to see this on tv! How ridiculously tiny Efron will look next to Hugh-GIANT-Jackman’s imposing presence… HA!!!

There’s a rumor that Carrie Underwood will be at the Oscars as well, possibly performing. Does anyone know if this is true?

wise move for the Oscars….to get us to watch the getting-way-too-boring awards show (it’s too long winded which awards horrible and boring films – mostly for old people)… betcha once Zac and Vanessa are off the stage, we can switch channels or sign off

so many narrow-minded people in this world … and all of them are here posting in this thread.

turn your tv off on sunday … problem solved.

oh and jjj, will you please refrain from using “triple threat” in your posts so often? it’s getting to be annoying.
