    Get A 5 Star Rating!

    At the last part of the song (before it ends) activate your Starpower. You will now get a 5 star rating!

    *Note* You need to have hit 90% or more of the notes for this to work.

    Get More Starpower!

    When the notes come down and they are in the shape of a star, hit all the notes that are star shaped and you will get Starpower. Also, if a star note is a long note, press and hold the whammy bar to get even more Starpower!
