Olivia Rodrigo gave fans another emotional moment when she performed “Granted” on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (HSMTMTS). Watch as Nini (Rodrigo) says goodbye to Ricky (Joshua Bassett).
For those who haven’t been following, Nini is leaving Salt Lake City to head back to an artistic boarding school in Denver that she does not enjoy. As she says goodbye to everyone at East High School, she has to say goodbye to her boyfriend, Ricky, the boy she is leaving at the beginning of the music video.
It all comes to a head in this week’s episode, “The Storm,” when she gets stuck in Salt Lake City during a blizzard while on her way back to school in Denver and performs “Granted,” as she wonders if she’s making the right choice in leaving once again. If you loved season 1’s “All I Want,” get ready for a new favorite Rodrigo jam to occupy your brain (and playlists).
Elsewhere in the episode, the rest of the Wildcats are stranded at East High after hours thanks to the snowstorm, just as E.J. (Matt Cornett) receives some bad news. When cabin fever sets in, Miss Jenn (Kate Reinders) inspires Nini to make a bold choice about her future, while Gina (Sofia Wylie) and Carlos (Frankie Rodriguez) come to blows about how to choreograph a number in the musical.
