    Kind of sounds like an acting version of Hannah Montana.

    They can do exactly what they do in anime: sing the opening and/or closing song or sing the insert songs.

    Not unlike Selena Gomez performing the theme song for 'Wizards of Waverly Place' or Kyle Massey for 'Cory in the House.'

    I just heard her covering "How does she know?" So bad.... It sounds like the producer went into the recording studio and was like "so how can we mess up a song?"

    I love it when Disney hires people I've never heard about in the slightest. Makes not watching them that less of a hassle.
