This Week on TV: Grease Live!


Not sure if this should be in the TV or Movie section, because it’s technically a movie, done live… for TV :D.

Either way, I don’t care, because Grease Live! was absolutely fantastic! I’ve only seen the full original movie once, and that was about 15 years ago, so I didn’t remember much of the plot, but I found it kind of fascinating. The singing was superb, I actually think that I like Aaron Tveit better than John Travolta in this role, his singing voice is definitly better. While Julianne Hough was awesome as Sandy, I still like Olivia Newton-John’s voice slightly better. But utterly impressive was Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, she was completely transformed, and I couldn’t even recognize the same kid that was on High School Musical.

Overall the casting was freaking amazing and the show was awesome. But more than the story or the actors, what amazes me was the whole of the production behind it. Fox did it brilliantly!
