Camp Rock 3: Battle of the Bands

Chapter Six: Final Jam

It was time for final jam and all the bands were lined up to perform. Meanwhile, Tony's band, Connected was having an argument, which Nate happened upon and hid behind a tree.

"I'm done" Sam said, throwing the guitar onto the ground.

"You can't be done, we need a guitarist to qualify for the competition" Tony snapped. Sam had had enough though.

"You need to grow up" He said. "I am done and there is no way you can make me play" Sam was hoping to leave and get Mitchie before Final Jam started, but Tony seemed to have other ideas. He grabbed Sam's arm.

"I can make your life miserable Sam" He hissed. "You don't want me as your enemy" Sam glared at the guy who used to be his friend.

"What happened to you?" He asked. He shook his head. "Kidnapping is a federal offense Tony. Either let Mitchie go, or I won't play" Tony smirked.

"Oh you'll play, but I won't let Mitchie go" What Tony and the rest of the band didn't know was that Sam had seen Nate and he knew that Nate would tear the cabin apart looking for Mitchie once he heard the confession.

"Fine" Sam said darkly. He wrenched his arm away from Tony. "I'll play"

Nate took off through the woods towards the cabin. They must have missed something. He burst through the cabin door.

"Mitchie!" He shouted. "Mitchie where are you!"

Mitchie heard Nate's voice and screamed through her gag. It wasn't loud, but it was enough. The closet door flung open and Nate pushed aside the clothes. He pulled Mitchie out of the closet and untied her. She took the gag off and flung her arms around her surrogate brother.

"We don't have much time. Final Jam is about to start" Nate said.

Shane was getting irritated. Nate wasn't there yet and the show started in two minutes. Jason didn't know what to think either. Suddenly, just before the first band stepped on the stage, Mitchie and Nate came flying through the audience and quickly seated themselves at the judging table. Shane was overjoyed to see Mitchie, but there was no time to ask questions. The Dynamites were up first.

Caitlyn: Well, you know everything's gonna be a breeze
That the end will no doubt justify the means
You could fix any problem at the slightest ease
Yes please

Tess: Well, you might find out, it'll go to your head
When you write a report on a book you never read
With the snap of your fingers you can make your bed
That's what I said

Both: Everything is not what it seems
When you can get all you wanted in your wildest dreams
You might run into trouble if you go to extremes
Because everything is not what it seems

Everything is not what it seems
When you can have what you want by the simplest of means
Be careful not to mess with the balance of things
Because everything is not what it seems

The audience clapped when they were done. A few more bands performed, then Tony and his band stepped on the stage. His eyes widened when he saw her. Mitchie stood up.

"Anthony Higgins and the band Connected have been disqualified from Final Jam" She announced. Two police officers, who had stood in the back unnoticed until now, stepped on to the stage.

"Anthony Higgins, you are under arrest for the kidnapping of Mitchie Torres, you have the right to remain silent, anything you say or do can be used against you in a court of law" One of the officers said. Anthony was led away and Mitchie walked to center stage.

"Well, now that the excitement is all over, we as the judges must now choose which band wins the prize" The audience was silent while Connect Three and Mitchie discussed the bands. While they were judging, Sam decided to entertain everyone with his own song.

"I wanna be free,
Like the bluebirds flying by me
Like the waves out on the blue sea.
If your love has to tie me, don't try me,
Say good-bye.

I wanna be free,
Don't say you love me say you like me,
But when I need you beside me,
Stay close enough to guide me, confide in me,
Oh-oh-oh

I wanna hold yur hand,
Walk along the sadn
Laughing in the sun,
Always having fun
Doing all those things
Without any strings
To tie me down.

I wanna be free,
Like the warm September wind, babe,
Say you'll always be my friend, babe.
We can make it to the end, babe,
Again, babe, I gotta say:
I wanna be free
I wanna be free"

Mitchie and Connect Three were surprised by Sam's performance. Mitchie finally walked on to the stage.

"In a turn of events there will be two prizes tonight" Mitchie said. "The Dynamites will recieve a contract and label and so will Sam" Sam was shocked and amazed that his dreams were coming true. Mitchie walked over to him.

"Nate told me what you did" She said. "If it weren't for you, Tony would have gotten away with it" Sam shrugged.

"I'm glad I could help" He said. Mitchie smiled.

After Final Jam, the camp had one final campfire and Mitchie and Shane reprised the song from the previous summer.

Shane: So let's sing na, na na na na, hey ya
Come on and sing na, na na na na, hey ya

Shane and Mitchie: This is our song that's all that matter cause
We all belong right here together
Sam: There's nothing better than singing along
Everyone: This is our summer
This is our song

Nate: And grab your guitar
Sit by the fire
Caitlyn: Cause we all need a song
When we're weary and tired
Jason: We'll sit here together and sing it out loud

Everyone: This is our song that's all that matter cause
We all belong right here together
There's nothing better than singing along
This is our summer and this is our song
This is our song, this is our song
This is our song

Tess: Come on and sing na, na na na na, hey ya
(repeat)

Everyone: This is our song that's all that matters cause
We all belong right here together
There's nothing better than singing along
This is our summer (Our summer)

This is our song that's all that matters cause
We all belong right here together
There's nothing better than singing along
This is our summer
This is our song (This is our song)
This is our song (This is our song)
This is our song
This is our song!"

It was truly the end to a great summer.
