Hudgens Planned American Idol Audition
The 18-year-old was too young to follow her reality TV talent dream in 2004, and was counting down the days until her 16th birthday - the minimum age contestants must be before appearing on the show.
But when a role in the Disney teen movie franchise appeared, she abandoned her desire to appear in front of acid-tongued judge Simon Cowell.
She says, "I was 15 at the time ... and you had to be 16 to audition. So I thought, 'One more year.'
"Then, when I turned 16, High School Musical came along and I got to do it. So I thought I'd skip on American Idol."
