Trivia

Due to legal matters, Alexz Johnson was only able to record four songs each for the season 3 and 4 soundtracks. So although most of the songs are sung by Jude on the show, on the album they are covered by other artists. For example Kyle Riabko, who played Milo in season 4, sings "Live Like Music" on the album while Jude performs it on the show. See more »

Kat Benton: I haven't been answering. I've been deciding what I'm going to say to you. Look, I went into this knowing I was No.2, but I thought maybe some day I'd be No.1. But I was wrong and that hurts so much. I made this for you.

4 out of 5 stars...
12 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not your run of the mill shallow show. If you're expecting Lizzie McGuire, teeny- bopper fluff, this is not the show for you. Think more along the lines of Degrassi. It's grittier and has more depth and emotion to it. While the overall storyline is a hard one to connect with because it's so out there, it's definitely a perspective that hasn't really been shown on television about the downsides of fame. Maybe things during the course of the show come a little to easy to her, but what TV is truly and completely real to life. I would give Instant Star 4 our of 5 stars for a show aimed at pre-teens and teens. Plus I really love the music. And if you think you've seen Jude somewhere else, you may remember her from So Weird, another show that was heavy with music. So you know this girl is truly talented.
