Grease Live, Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens

Fox

Are your chills multiplying? Because the first photos of Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and Aaron Tveit decked out in their Pink Lady and T-Bird best are making us incredibly excited for January's Grease: Live.

Seriously: Have sky-high wigs and black spandex and leather ever looked better? Probably not since John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John attended Rydell High back in 1978.

The special, which will air from 7 to 10 p.m. on each coast (sorry, Pacific time zone, you get tape-delayed), stars Dancing With the Stars' Hough as the innocent Sandy, High School Musical alum Hudgens as the worldly Rizzo, and Broadway vet Tveit as the irresistible Danny Zuko. Not pictured: current DWTS final four competitor Carlos PenaVega, who will play Kenickie.

Lovebirds Danny and Sandy are pictured post-transformation—but Hough also looks incredible in Sandy's iconic cardigan/poodle skirt combo.

The show will also star Scream Queens' Keke Palmer as Marty, singer Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy, You're the Worst's Kether Donohue as Jan, and David Del Rio as Putzie.

"Grease is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy," Hough said in a statement at the time her casting was announced. "My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids. This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I've had in my career so far."

Grease: Live airs Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016 at 7 p.m. on Fox.
