Grab a mic and a hat. Follow me if you can. Hurry! Let's go!

Attention campers, welcome back to Camp Rock as we celebrate the 27th birthday of Alyson Stoner, one of the stars of the 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie.

Starring Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas, Camp Rock was one of the network's biggest hits, spawning a sequel, attracting 8.9 million viewers and it still ranks as the third highest-rated DCOM to this day. 

After the TV movie's premiere, its four main stars all went on to land their own successful Disney Channel series, with many of their co-stars remaining within the Mouse House as well after Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam debuted in 2010. 

In honor of Stoner's special day, we thought it would be fun to check in on all of the movie's cast members and what they've been up to since following their dreams and finding their voices at the coolest music camp.

Disney Channel Hunks: Then & Now

So raise your hands up in the air and scream as you find out what the stars of Camp Rock are up to now...

Joe Jonas

He was Shane Gray for crying out loud! 

The Jonas Brothers' lead singer took on the leading man role in Camp Rock, playing the aforementioned moody rocker (which he loves to remind fans of by recreating iconic scenes from the movies).

After the group disbanded in 2013, most expected Joe to be the brother to launch a solo career—especially after being the first to release an individual album pre-split. Instead, he found success with his band DNCE, which officially formed in 2015 and had a major hit with "Cake By the Ocean."

When it comes to his personal life, Joe, 30, had high-profile romances with Taylor Swift and Gigi Hadid before he began dating Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner in 2016. The couple announced their engagement with matching Instagram posts in October 2017.

Following the 2019 Billboard Music Awards that May, Joe and Sophie held a surprise (and star-studded) ceremony at a Las Vegas wedding chapel, with the newly minted husband and wife swapped ring pops instead of wedding bands. They later held a second wedding ceremony for family and friends in France

The couple have since welcomed two daughters: Willa, born in July 2020, while Sophie gave birth to their second child in July 2022.

Demi Lovato

After starring as camp newcomer Mitchie Torres, Lovato would go on to front her own Disney Channel series, Sonny With a Chance, for two years.

Lovato's music career took off after saying goodbye to the network, releasing hit singles such as "Confident," "Sorry, Not Sorry" and "Cool for the Summer" are just a few—and seven studio albums. She also served as a judge on The X Factor, and guest-starred on Glee and Will & Grace.

The pop star got engaged to actor Max Ehrich in July 2020, but the pair split two months later. Lovato debuted her relationship with musician Jutes in August 2022. 

Over the past decade, Lovato has been vocal about her mental health journey, and she addressed her near-fatal 2018 drug overdose in the 2021 docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil.

Nick Jonas

While the youngest member of the band took on a supporting role as drummer Nate Gray in the two films, Nick would be the only brother to go on to have an acting career, starring in the gritty MMA drama Kingdom and Fox's Scream Queens. He also starred in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, one of 2017's highest-grossing movies, and returned for the 2019 sequel. Plus, Nick served as a coach on NBC's The Voice in 2020.

Nick also continued have success in the music world, releasing two solo albums and making the top 10 hit as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100 with his single "Jealous." 

When The Jonas Brothers announced they were reuniting in 2018, going on to release the hit single "Sucker," Nick took ownership for the group's breakup five years prior in their revealing 2019 documentary Chasing Happiness.

In December 2018, he married Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra in a series of ceremonies during a three-day, destination-wedding extravaganza in India. The couple welcomed daughter Malti Marie in January 2022. 

Kevin Jonas

"Yeah man, this is where Connect 3...connected."

The eldest Jonas played Jason Gray, one-third of the movie's hit band and a Camp Rock enthusiast. The brothers would go on to star in their own Disney Channel series Jonas for two seasons, while also continuing to release music as The Jonas Brothers.

When the band announced their hiatus in 2010, Kevin married Danielle Jonas in December 2009 and is now dad to daughters Alena Rose Jonas and Valentina Angelina Jonas. The couple also starred in the E! series Married to Jonas, and Kevin dove into the business world, founding real estate development and construction firm JonasWerner. He also served as CEO of The Blu Market Company and made a brief-but-memorable appearance on The Real Housewives of New Jersey when he showed up as a contractor.

Alyson Stoner

After her breakout performance in Step Up and Cheaper by the Dozen and her recurring role on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Stoner took on the part of aspiring producer and dancer Caitlyn Gellar in Camp Rock and its sequel. 

Aside from returning for two Step Up sequels, Stoner has also voiced characters in the Kingdom Heart video game franchise and was Isabella on Disney's hit animated series Phineas & Ferb

Stoner penned an essay for Teen Vogue in 2018, opening up about falling in love with her female dance instructor. Stoner also released a single, "When It's Right," inspired by the relationship. 

She told E! News not long afterwards that coming out was "a little bit scary" but the risk was worth it. She said, "What matters most is that it's a really exciting, fresh time for me to feel more myself than ever."

In 2019, Stoner debuted her shaved head in her "Stripped Bare" music video, and later opened up about her previous mental health struggles and overcoming an eating disorder.

"Shaving my head is an act of mental health and confidence, not self-destruction," she told People. "I can't tell you how many beliefs and opinions and insecurities fell to the floor with every tuft of hair, and I'm leaving them there."

Later that same year, she made headlines for stealing the show at the MTV Video Music Awards when she teamed up with Missy Elliott for an epic performance of "Work It," 17 years after she starred in the music video for the hit song.
