The promos for Grease Live! have finally been released, and we are so excited for our first look into the live event of the new year!
Fox will be airing a live stage show of one of the most beloved musicals in history with an all-star cast on January 31, forget counting down to Christmas or even NYE we’re checking this off on our calender.
Nick Jonas, Aaron Tveit, Mario Lopez, Carlos PenaVega will be bringing the heat as the male half of the cast while Keke Palmer, Carly Rae Jepson, Vanessa Hudgens and Julianne Hough are all set to slay as the Pink Ladies and Sandy respectively.
Though we know nothing will ever beat the original, this version is prepared to give them a run for their money as the cast look picture perfect in their roles, with Hough providing the perfect bad, and good Sandy.
Jessie J will also be voicing the iconic ‘Grease Is The Word’ track to kick off the festivities. We’re beyond excited.
This will be the latest in a line of successful live broadcast reenactments of stage shows including The Sound Of Music and Peter Pan in previous years and The Wiz which will be airing December 6.
Fox spokesperson Shana C. Waterman said: “From Broadway to film, and across generations, Grease is one of the most beloved musical stories ever told – and we can’t wait to bring it to our air in a spectacular live event. Its iconic characters and addictive songs make it the perfect fit for Fox, and we’re going to give it the kind of star power and production quality to make every Sandy, Danny, Rizzo and Kenickie out there want to get up and sing along.”
