"Fabulous" is a single from the 2007 Disney Channel Original Movie, High School Musical 2. The song was sung by Ashley Tisdale as Sharpay Evans and Lucas Grabeel as Ryan Evans.

Song information[edit]

This song is the second from the Soundtrack, Allmusic stated that "That includes Ashley Tisdale, who returns as thwarted musical theater queen Sharpay and is the soundtrack's star. A childhood musical theater veteran herself, Tisdale's chirpy, slightly saccharine voice is perfect (and sometimes, perfectly annoying) on songs like "Fabulous" a piece of diva-tastic pop that could also appear on the soundtrack to My Super Sweet 16. However, her turn on the Polynesian-flavored "bonus" track "Humuhumunukunukuapua'a" crosses the line from cute to far too cutesy, and could be the final straw for listeners past their early teens."[1] The Jason Nevins remix of the song was launched as promotional song for the remix album High School Musical Hits Remixed, with a music video.[2] The song is also featured in Disney Girlz Rock, Vol. 2.[3]

Scene in the movie[edit]

The choreography includes Sharpay Evans, Ryan Evans, the Sharpettes, and members of the ensemble reclining beside the pool of the Lava Springs Country Club; and aquatic dancing about a floating piano. On screen, "Fabulous" was accompanied by Shawn Carter, pianist.
