Shake It Up - Brain It Up Sneak Peek


  • This episode garnered 2.954 million viewers, the 5th most watched program of the evening.                  
  • This is the third episode that Rocky is seen wearing glittering, gothic fashion. The others being in "Wild It Up" and "Judge It Up."
  • It is unknown if CeCe is still in honors because in reality, there was nothing wrong with CeCe's score. There was only something wrong with Rocky's score.
  • Rocky's score was actually 111 instead of 11.


  • Flynn was using the speakers which must have been in the Principal's Office but he was standing outside of the door when Deuce stepped out of the classroom.
  • In Auction It Up, Rocky told Klaus that she and CeCe weren't allowed to watch Jersey Hills and didn't let him watch it, but was seen watching it on her phone in this episode. An explanation could be that she got older.
