THE FIRST TWO FINALISTS ARE ELIMINATED FROM COMPETITION BUT REMAIN IN THE SHOW AS PART OF THE CHORUS, ON "HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL: GET IN THE PICTURE"
Briana Vega, 16, from Winter Springs, Florida, and Christie Brooke, 18, from Ka'a'awa, Hawaii, were the first two contestants "sent to the chorus" of the reality program "High School Musical: Get in the Picture." The teens will remain on the program, but are no longer in contention for the grand prize.
At the end of the series, which airs Mondays 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET, one talented newcomer will become a part of "High School Musical" history. The winner will literally "get in the picture" when he/she stars in a music video shown in the end credits of the feature film, Disney's "High School Musical 3: Senior Year," opening this fall. In addition, the winner will also receive an exclusive talent hold agreement with ABC and a recording contract for two digital singles with Walt Disney Records, one of which will be a version of the song from the music video.
