If you've been waiting for the perfect excuse to dust off your Clarie’s brand Hannah Montana wig, throw on your sparkliest top, and break out the “Hoedown Throwdown” routine, then this very Thursday is your lucky Thursday: The award-winning comedy that launched Miley Cyrus’s career into the stratosphere turns ten today. On March 24, 2006, Disney Channel original series Hannah Montana premiered. And no, I'm not the only one feeling all sorts of nostalgic: HM stars Cyrus, Jason Earles, Mitchel Musso, and Emily Osment shared some adorable TBT posts in honor of the show's milestone birthday.
Long before Cyrus climbed on top of a wrecking ball or hosted the VMAs, she was best known her portrayal of the teen who lived the best of both worlds: By day, Miley Stewart was a regular kid who went to school, got into shenanigans with friends Lilly and Oliver, and was terrified of the dentist. But the moment Miley Stewart threw on a highlighted wig and a bedazzled fuchsia jacket, she morphed into her alter ego: super famous pop star Hannah Montana. As a certain fictional recording artist once sang, she held the key to both realities. And sweet niblets, was it ever a great television program.
On this very Hannah Montana edition of Throwback Thursday, let us e-celebrate the anniversary with Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana (Cyrus), Jackson (Earles), Oliver (Musso), and Lilly (Osmennt):
And here's the caption that goes with the photo:
@realdukeofearles understands the insanity of it all ... Sending love to all my cast members on this anniversary .... To the world it's a celebration of 10 years but for us the journey began way before the world had any clue who the f*ck any of us are ..... There was a very long auditioning process, and many chemistry reads which really is what sold the show to the producers and channel because no matter what went on over the years (which none of you have any clue about but It was like the real world but more hormonal teenagers) our love for each other was unquestionable.... Even though I feel disconnected to who I was at that time I will always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and platform I was given .... None of it would have been possible with out every single person who ever contributed to the series .... From regulars , to special guests (and there were many magical ones @dollyparton 💞) to creators, crew , directors..... I am where I am because of loyal fans that I am thankful for and of course love dearly all the new angels who support me now..... Even though HM is chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard she will always hold a very special place in my heart! Celebrate this day with us! Get real drunk and remember #HM4EVR 👸🏼 send pics gettinnnnn buck wild in honor of this special day! ❤️❤️❤️ #letsplayadrinkinggamewatch HM and every time someone says her name take a shot! Yiew hew!
