MANILA, Philippines – It’s been 10 years since High School Musical (HSM) hit our screens and as part of their 10th anniversary special, some of the cast took a trip down memory lane and watched their audition videos from 2005. (IN PHOTOS: ‘High School’ musical cast reunion)

The highlight of the segment was the audition of the two stars, Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron, both of whose careers have bloomed since the movie. Vanessa and Zac also became a couple off-screen, to the delight of HSM fans everywhere. Vanessa and Zac broke up in 2010.

In their audition video though, the former couple is young and sweet, repeating familiar lines from the movie as Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez.

The audition was also interspersed with reactions from Vanessa herself, along with former castmates Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and Monique Coleman.

“You were so sweet, and beautiful, and perfect,” commented Monique on a young Vanessa.

The auditions of Ashley, Corbin, Lucas, and Monique were played too, sharing a little bit of their experiences during that time.

After watching his and Ashley’s audition for the roles of Sharpay and Ryan Evans, Lucas shared, “We ran through the scene, and this girl (Ashley) gave me notes.” It was, as Monique pointed out, something Sharpay herself would have done.

After all the videos were played, Corbin commented, “Every single person that was on the cast, everybody brought something so different and so interesting to the table and it was always so genuine.”

The HSM 10th anniversary special aired in the US on January 20. Zac wasn’t in the special, but he did give a video message on the segment, and shared about his favorite scene from the movie.
