Vanessa Hudgens, AKA the ICONIC Gabriella Montez from the High School Musical film franchise, has reprised her role in a very entertaining karaoke session.
The High School Musical film franchise follows the love story of Gabriella and Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) as they explore their dreams and goals alongside their friends, Chad (Corbin Bleu), Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale), Ryan (Lucas Grabeel) and Taylor (Monique Coleman). As these teens navigate through high school, there is one thing they all do in each movie: sing. I mean, it’s called High School Musical for a reason, right?
Troy and Gabriella participate in the school’s musical despite facing harsh criticism from the basketball and scholastic teams. One of the most memorable songs from the movies is called “Breaking Free.”
It is sung during the film’s climax when Troy and Gabriella participate in the callbacks in front of the entire student body.
That’s why Vanessa Hudgens’ drunken (or as she puts it, “totally sober”) rendition of this song is so iconic.
She captions the post, “Um. Here’s a really bad, aggressive, and totally sober 😂😳🙏🏻 version of breaking free. Yep. That happened lol it hurts my ears but also makes me laugh lol 🤷🏻♀️ the “ooo yeah”. Dear lord lol 🤦🏻♀️🤘🏻”
Fans were definitely grateful for this performance that took us all down memory lane. Many users commented cheering her on:
Former co-star, Monique Coleman wrote, “🔥👑😂,” which made this post even better because fans were so excited that “Taylor” responded to “Gabriella’s” post!
“MS. MONTEZ IS BACK,” commented singer, Adelaine Morin.
“Mz Gabriela! You ok gurl? 😂,” said drag performer, Valentina AKA James Andrew Leyva.
Here’s even more of her fun-filled karaoke night:
