Then came The Wiz Live! in December, and now on January 31 at 7pm Eastern, Fox joins the fun with Grease: Live. They’ve loaded the cast with great choices: Julianne Hough (of Dancing with the Stars) and Aaron Tveit (from Broadway’s Next to Normal) are Sandy and Danny, who will be supported by a cast of pop stars like Carly Rae Jepsen (as ditzy Frenchy), Vanessa Hudgens (playing rough Rizzo) and Jessie J (pictured) singing the Bee Gees’ title song. Mario Lopez, Ana Gasteyer and Martin Short round out the cast.
