Episode Summary

The Studio's students are all happy to have Pablo back. Olga promises Violetta that she won't say anything about her attending the Studio to her father. Gregorio brings Marotti, the executive producer of the internet portal Youmix, to make an internet reality show. On Youmix, there will be a talent show and the students will audition for it. Only eight of them will be chosen for the show. Then there will be four of them, then two, and one winner who will make a record and two videos, and also have a concert broadcasted on Youmix. Maxi and Naty become closer and closer. Meanwhile, there's a new exchange student at the Studio. His name is Federico and he is from Italy. Gregorio immediately doesn't like Federico because Pablo chose him to be the exchange student when he was director of the Studio. Right away when they first meet, Violetta doesn't like Federico. When Violetta returns home, Jade tells her that Federico will be staying with them because he's the son of her father's friend.
