Grease Live

Fox

Let us guess: Your face is stuck in a permanent grin too?

Grease: Live has officially graced the world with its presence, and it probably couldn't have been more magical. We honestly had a great time, and it looked like everyone on those multiple stages had even more fun than we did.

The sets were incredible, the choreography was insane, and most of the performances had us jumping out of our chairs, both in awe and to make it easier to sing and dance along.  

Starring Julianne HoughAaron TveitVanessa HudgensCarly Rae JepsenKeke PalmerCarlos PenaVega and Kether Donohue, Fox's Grease Live was all the magic of the movie, plus a little extra. 

You're gonna be hand-jiving for the rest of your lives, basically. Don't fight it. Just let it happen, and embrace the magic that is Grease Live with GIFs from the entire show! 

Feel free to head to the comments with your own thoughts, but if you hated it...we do not agree.

Off to a great (and only mildly awkward) green screen start!

Didi Conn, the original Frenchy, may just be the cutest human in existence here as she accompanies Jessie J in the opening number.

Aaand then there's Mario Lopez with an umbrella! If you're here to hear us make fun of this show, you're outta luck. If you're here to watch us try to not make fun of Mario Lopez, then you are in the right place!

Kenickie's good with those comebacks.

Same, Jan. Same.

Honestly, this might just be an entire blog of Kether Donohue GIFs, because this girl is having a GREAT time tonight. Bonus appearance by Patty Simcox, who is quickly becoming our favorite character.

This just in: Summer Lovin' continues to be the best song in this show, and it has nothing to do with the music or lyrics.

Do you think she'll make the cheerleading team, guys?? 

Really though, Julianne Hough is incredible and her resemblance to Olivia Newton John, the OG Sandy, is kind of freaking us out at times.

She made the team, and found a man with whom to have riveting conversations! 

"You're pretty." "Thanks! You're pretty too!"

This sad marching band GIF just speaks for itself, we think.

Keke Palmer: Killed it. 

Kether Donohue: A national treasure.

Don't you even think about keeping that pelvis away from us, Rizzo! 

No. We take that back. That was weird. But VHud truly embodied Rizzo during this song.

Things got VERY sexy in that car with Vanessa Hudgens and Carlos Penavega.

META! (Oh hey, Barry Pearl, original Doody!)

Greased Lightning: Awakening something new and exciting in us since...1975?

This seems ill-advised but whatever. (We watched this performance of Greased Lightning three times and we are not ashamed.)

YOU GO, FRENCHY! Or Vi! Whatever your name is, you're adorable.

Is it weird that we think Carlos Penavega looks hot with a hamburger stuffed in his mouth? This show is corrupting our souls.

You might not be surprised to know that Danny and Doody singing to each other lovingly was like our third favorite part of this show so far. 

Also: We've developed a mostly voice-related crush on Doody. He's cute already, but the voice adds like 40,000 cute points. And also, helloooo Danny's shorts!

Grease Live GIF

That looks painful in every single way.

And a side of fries. 

(This song was not in the original show or movie, and let's just say it would have been fine for it to not have been in the original live Fox production either.)

We're just going to imagine that this was Kether Donohue making her childhood dreams come true.

It's dancin' time! Fun fact: this was the absolute coolest scene to watch in person because the entire audience was a part of the dance. Check back tomorrow morning for snippets from behind the scenes!

Oh good. Mario Lopez is here to show off his vocal dexterity.

Gabriella, how could you?!

What even is this and how are they doing it?

A camera?! Not a camera! They'll find out I'm an immortal creature that doesn't show up on film!

We have nothing to say about this impeccable rendition of a song we typically only hear coming out of our own mouths as we belt it alone in our cars. 

Grease Live GIF

We hereby declare this moment with Blanche, her bra, and Ana Gasteyer's "this is a test" beeps to be the most perfect moment that has ever occurred on live television.

You can't just kind of assault a woman at a drive-in, either!

We GIF'd this entire scene in order to honor Sandy's skills at COMPLETELY OWNING PATTY SIMCOX. 

Grease Live GIF

Aww look at these two coming to terms with their fragile masculinity and bringing it in for a nice friendly hug!

Grease Live GIF

Fox

We're just sitting here thinking of the last time we watched Vanessa Hudgens lament about her problems as she walked through a school, and we're so proud of her for how much she's grown and how well she's handling having lost her dad last night. We'd be a mess, and she's somehow not only keeping it together, but she's stealing the show. 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

This looks very real. (OK, it doesn't, but for a race involving cars that aren't actually moving on a soundstage, it looks good enough.)

Most terrifying GIF we've ever made.

This is us realizing that there's only like 15 minutes left of this glorious spectacle.

Yeah, you get some, Patty Simcox!

THE MOST ICONIC MOMENT!

Sandy has revealed herself to secretly look very good in black spandex and a perm, we've begun to think a little harder about our sexuality, and young children all over America are all, "but I thought they said just to be myself!" Don't worry, little children. Yourself can wear both cardigans and tight pants, or even neither of those things! And life doesn't have to be all about boys, or girls, but it can be, if you want it to be, because you do you and all that!

Grease Live GIF

Fox

But like if you do wear tight pants, you might get a boy to do this, and that's kind of fun. 

Grease Live GIF

We will not lie, this made us cry. Frenchy's little butt wiggle just changed all of our lives. 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

Dear world: Please cast Kether Donohue in everything. Every. Single. Thing. 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

Keke my love, we had better be seeing you in more musicals soon (or biopics of legendary singers, maybe?) because you are an incredible talent. 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

Congrats to Carly Rae Jepsen, who was great as Frenchy even if she was given a less-than-stellar song to sing. And Jordan Fisher, we love you. Please be in more things, and bring your guitar. 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

Give if up for Vanessa Hudgens, who probably could not have done a better job, and for Carlos Penavega, whose mouth full of hamburger we are still thinking about. (What is wrong with us? Are we just hungry??) 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

Julianne Hough, we love you more than we thought we could. And a very special congratulations to Aaron Tveit for actually managing to make us forget you're 32 and not 18 in most or at least a few of the scenes. The show may be over, but we'll always have GIFs of Greased Lightning. 

We will be attempting that cool hand-on-pelvis walk later (when we finish watching this a third or fourth time). 

 

Grease Live GIF

Fox

And that's it. The show is over, and it was honestly just as magical as we hoped it would be. It might have actually been more magical, and might force all future live musicals to step up their game. We'll never be able to watch a show on one simple stage again. We demand multiple stages! We demand live audiences! We demand golf carts! We demand Aaron Tveit! 

This also is giving us a lot of hope for this fall's production of Rocky Horror Picture Show, so good for you, Fox!
