Demi Lovato starred in Disney Channel’s original movie, ‘Camp Rock’

With songs like “This Is Me” and “We Rock,” some fans first met Lovato as the character, Mitchie Torres, the daughter of a summer camp chef who dreamed of a life in the spotlight. Everything changed when she became friends with the “popular” girl at the camp, changing everything about herself to fit in. 

This character, after finding her voice and falling for a handsome rocker at the camp, returned the following summer for Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. She appeared in even more musical numbers, as did members of the Jonas Brothers — Kevin, Joe, and Nick.

During 2020, Lovato revisited the Disney Channel original movie where she appeared as the main character. After posting a few clips of the film to her Instagram story, the artist concluded that her performance was “awkward,” including one scene with Alyson Stoner where she reacted with an “I can’t.”

For another scene with Lovato and her co-star, Joe Jonas, the actor captioned her story, “I told ‘yall – how awkward am I?!!!” In the background of the video, Lovato could be heard laughing at herself. Billboard reports that “Lovato capped off her Camp Rock rewatch by sharing a spunky scene of herself performing the song ‘Our Time Is Here’ with Stoner and other cast members.” 

“This s–t still slaps not gonna lie…,” she captioned the clip. This was a bonus song, excluded from the original movie but later added to the DVD and the film’s official soundtrack.
