“This has always been a passion of mine and you were on American Idol, and you won,” Vanessa said. “And I was like, that’s it, I’m going on American Idol.”
“Then that next week, I got an audition for High School Musical and booked it,” she continued. “So then I was like, well, never mind, but I was like I’m doing it, and you were the catalyst.”
Kelly then asked Vanessa if she remembered the beginning of High School Musical.
“Yeah, I remember all the auditions, definitely, ’cause there were a lot of them,” she shared. “There were, I mean there were like three, but like I remember them distinctly. I remember meeting Zac [Efron] for the first time, meeting Lucas [Grabeel] for the first time.”
“Me and Ashley [Tisdale] had already met ’cause we did a commercial together like a month prior, so,” Vanessa said. “But it’s wild. The time just keeps flying.”
