11 Musicians You Totally Forgot Were Hannah Montana
Miley Cyrus wasn’t the only singer belting it out on Disney Channel’s hit Hannah Montana . Both the series and its 2009 movie snuck in cameos from today’s biggest celebrities, like besties Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez . Remember these characters and their real-life celeb counterparts?
- Jesse McCartney as himself Disney Channel
The Beautiful Soul heartthrob asked Hannah out on a date, but she couldn’t go because Miley had a science project due the next day. I guess having the Best of Both Worlds isn’t so great after all.
- Selena Gomez as Mikayla Skeech Disney Channel
Gomez lip-synched to If Cupid Had a Heart in Season 2. These competing pop stars were frenemies, plain and simple. Their rivalry was almost as dramatic as Regina George and Cady Heron’s in Mean Girls .
- The Jonas Brothers as themselves Disney Channel
Miley got jealous when her dad spent all his time with the JoBros . But because all things Disney need to have a happy ending, everyone made up by singing We Got the Party.
- Sterling Knight as Lucas Disney Channel
Knight , who sang songs for Sonny with a Chance and the DCOM Starstruck , played Lilly Truscott’s cheating ex-boyfriend in Season 2. (What a jerk!) And yep, there’s Austin Butler from MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles .
- Joey Fatone as Joey Vitolo Disney Channel
Fatone appeared as Joey Vitolo, a famous baseball player turned restaurant owner in Season 2. Miley wanted him to sign Jackson’s baseball, so she agreed to perform Life's What You Make It with the NSYNC alum.
- David Archuleta as himself Disney Channel
This was yet another catchy Season 3 duet between Hannah and a real-life pop star: I Wanna Know You.
- Corbin Bleu as Johnny Collins Disney Channel
Throughout the series, High School Musical star Bleu was Miley Stewart’s classmate with a major crush on Hannah, not realizing Miley and Hannah were the same person. He ended up buying a ,000 dinner date with Hannah during a charity auction and sang If We Were a Movie with her. Casual.
- Sheryl Crow as herself Disney Channel
For a holiday special in the final season, Hannah and Sheryl sang a duet of Need a Little Love.
- Dolly Parton as Aunt Dolly Disney Channel
Parton is Cyrus’s godmother in real life. On the show, Aunt Dolly gave Miley advice about her booming singing career.
- Taylor Swift as herself Disney
Tay sang Crazier in Hannah Montana: The Movie .
- Iyaz as himself Disney Channel
Just try to get Hannah and Iyaz ’s Season 4 collab, Gonna Get This , out of your head. I dare you.
