  • Makayla from Louisville, Kyand when they reunite it was with the help of ryan and kelsi and them because sharpay said that the staff could not participate in the talent show so troy quit but said he would do it if the staff could do the talent show as well. and then ryan said that sharpay switched the songs when she did not and he learned that one instead and when he started singing the girl that sang was not sharpay but gabriella and then the staff joined in with them and they finally kissed at the end!:)
