Seventeen renditions of songs from Disney Channel's HighSchool Musical 2, performed in multiple languages by recording artists from around the world, will be presented this Friday during a special programming event on the network, officials said Monday.

The music videos have been airing on each country's local Disney Channel.

The day-long event begins with a 16-episode marathon of Disney's Hannah Montana, from noon to 8 p.m., and leads into a telecast of High School Musical 2 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Miley Cyrus, star of Hannah Montana, is also seen in a cameo role during the final sequence of High School Musical 2.

Throughout High School Musical 2, highlights and star interviews from the movie's European red-carpet premiere event will be featured.

The telefilm’s premiere Aug. 17 and subsequent airing in the week that followed made HSM2 the most-watched show in cable history.
