    Let it shine was the best Disney Channel movie i have ever seen the only complaint that i have is that they didnt kiss at the end of the movie.Let it shine will surpass any numbers that Nickelodeon will ever get.

    Well Let it shine was boring the only person that was a good actor and singer on the show was Coco Jones. Tyler James Williams never could act even on Everybody Hates Chris he broght the show down, even though I always throught EHC was one of the most anti white shows on television.So really if it wasn’t for Coco the whole movies would have fell so low it would have ended up in the basement it was so lousy. As for the other Disney shows they are good with the exception of the Ant Farm which I hope won’t last although I think that all the main kids actors on the show could make it on another show with the exception of China Anne McClain who just can’t act or sing the poor thing tries with all her heart,, but she sounds like she reading her lines and forcing her parts, she’s singing thru her nose while attempting to dance hoping a strong wind doesn’t blow her skinny frame away.
