In the two weeks following the first presentation of this movie on the Disney Channel, at least 8 tracks from the movie appeared on the Billboard Hot 100, the most simultaneous songs ever from one album at that point in time. In addition, many other Hot 100 chart records were set or broken. These include:
First debut artist to have 2 Hot 100 singles in the same week: Zac Efron. (Tied the next week by both Lucas Gabreel & Ashley Tisdale.)
First artist to debut with 4 Hot 100 singles in two weeks: Zac Efron. (The Beatles first three chart records were over a four week span.)
First duo to have 3 Hot 100 debut singles appear in 2 weeks on the Hot 100: Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hudgens.
First duo to have 2 Hot 100 debut singles in the same week: Lucas Gabreel & Ashley Tisdale.
First female to have 3 debut chart credits in 2 weeks: Vanessa Anne Hudgens.
First female to have 2 debut chart credits in 1 week: Ashley Tisdale
Biggest jump in Hot 100 history: (86-4) 82 points, "Breaking Free" by Zac & Vanessa. (Trouncing the old record of 74-point leaps shared by Montell Jordan's "I Can Do That" and Jeannie C Riley's "Harper Valley PTA".)
First time an artist has appeared on 5 concurrent Hot 100 singles within one week of his debut: Zac Efron. (Zac's 5 concurrent songs in the Hot 100 were the most by any artist since the Beatles held 14 positions in 1964.)
Besides The Cheetah Girls, High School Musical is the only Disney Channel Original Movie that has been getting ratings and good comments from the critics. High School Musical is my favorite Disney Channel Original Movie. I heard a rumor that they might make it into a Disney Channel Original Series after High School Musical 2 Premieres! If I had to give a Award to one of the actors in High School Musical for Best Performance, It Would go to Ashley Tisdale for her snotty Girley-girl image and her great act of being a Popular Rich Girl. I think she gets it from her best friend, Brenda Song who plays a Popular Rich Girl named London Tipton on The Suite Life Of Zack and Cody. If You haven't seen it, Watch it on Disney Channel or Buy the DVD.
