Best friends CeCe and Rocky find out that auditions for background dancers on their favorite show, "Shake it Up Chicago" are being held and they decide to go to the audition. Rocky does well and gets in. While, CeCe does not get on the show because she froze in the middle of her audition. This causes Rocky to not want to go to the show because CeCe is not on it. CeCe then forces Rocky to go to the show. At Rocky's first show, she handcuffs CeCe to herself and they ended up dancing together. The host thinks that they have the "it" factor so, CeCe gets in as well. The girls are officially background dancers on "Shake it Up Chicago". Written by J. Renee

This is gotta be the dumbest thing I've ever seen
21 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Just another washed-up over-used plot with no real depth whatsoever. it's a typical stupid Disney story...

I don't think there's enough I can say about this crappy show that would fill the 10 required lines but I'll try:

let's just put it this way; I felt like i wanted to kill myself at least a dozen times.

I'd rather take my eyeballs out then see this piece of junk again.

WHY is it so hard for Disney to make a good show? it's not brain surgery!

Not ONE person in this show has potential! they're all airheads!

it's official: Disney is where talentless girls go to become famous.
