Two Kiwi kids in finals for Camp Rock 2 talent comp

Disney Channels New Zealand and Australia, the #1 rating kids and family channel, today announced the 10 finalists for ‘My Camp Rock 2’, a talent competition in support of the Disney Channel Original Movie ‘Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam’, and Disney Channel fans will decide which team wins!

From more than 1,200 entries, the 10 finalists (two New Zealanders and eight Australians) were chosen based on an audition video featuring a performance of a song from the highly anticipated “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam”, which premieres on Disney Channel on Saturday, 2 October at 6.30 p.m.

In the spirit of the movie, the finalists were split into two teams, ‘Team Bass’ and ‘Team Treble’, at a workshop held in Sydney at the Australian Institute of Music, where the finalists received specialist vocal and choreography training. The weekend, hosted by Adam Saunders of “Blue Water High” fame, culminated in a Final Jam performance in front of a live audience and was filmed.  

The weekend’s highlights will be edited into the short-form TV series ‘My Camp Rock 2’, which will premiere on Disney Channel on Friday, 10 September, at 4.55 p.m., with new episodes airing twice weekly leading into the Australian premiere of “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam” on 2 October.

Disney Channel fans are asked to tune in to the Final Jam performance on Friday, 24 September at 5.25 p.m. and then vote online at for their favourite team. The two performances also will be available for online viewing, and the team with the most votes from viewers will win the chance to rock it out in a professionally produced music video that will premiere on Disney Channel!

Louise Benham, Director of Production and Programming, Disney Channels Australia and New Zealand, said: “We were overwhelmed with the remarkable talent and energy of the 10 finalists.  We look forward to sharing the TV series with our dedicated and passionate fans, and handing over the tough decision of who wins to Disney Channel viewers in the lead up to the biggest musical event of the year, ‘Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam’”.
