Hosting fireworks, a stadium-sized flag and 50,000 roaring Americans, the LaVell Edwards Stadium nearly exploded with patriotism Wednesday.
Corbin Bleu, a star of Walt Disney's "High School Musical," wows the crowd Wednesday as he appears at Provo's Stadium of Fire.
Disney's Corbin Bleu, one of the stars of "High School Musical," made his entrance between the dancers' jump ropes.
A grin from the movie star elicited screams from the teenage population. One girl near the front nearly fainted.
"He's amazing!" gushed Kali Hampton, 13, who came from Murray to see the Stadium of Fire. "He's like hot, and he's an amazing dancer. I love him."

"It's great, great entertainment," said Phylis Adams, 56, from Provo. "We are big music fans."
