Now Or Never is one of the singles from High School Musical 3: Senior Year and the first song heard in the movie and on the soundtrack. The song is sung in the movie by the High School Musical 3 cast, with Troy, Chad and Gabriella, all singing their own solos.

High School Musical 3: Senior Year

This song takes place during a basketball game against the West High Knights for the State Championship. In the movie, the song transitions itself from the boy's locker room to the gym and of course, the East High Wildcats win the State Championship.

The second time the song is sung is in the auditorium during the Spring Musical (Now Or Never (Reprise)). In this version, Chad is joined by fellow Wildcats Zeke Baylor, Jason Cross, the rest of the team and the cheerleaders. However, only the first forty-five seconds of the song are sung. Afterwards, the team gets a huge round of applause from the audience.
