Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko, hello!

The cast of Grease: Live were born to hand jive, baby—just check out the first promo from Fox's January production if you want to know for sure. Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens, Carly Rae Jepsen, Aaron Tveit and their costars get their '50s jive on in the first TV spot for the live event.

In case you were wondering, yes, Tveit as Zuko will be extra, super-duper dreamy. (Note: This is based solely on his sexy Jordan Catalano-style lean while decked out in full T-Bird black in this clip only. We're not even taking into account his incredible singing voice and years of Broadway theater experience. That's a bonus.)

You can also see the first glimpses at other cast members in action, including Keke Palmer decked out as Marty, Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy, and Kether Donohue from You're the Worst as the most incredibly perfect Jan ever. Those glasses! The pigtails!


Between this video and yesterday's amazing photos of Hough, Hudgens and Tveit in costume as Sandy, Rizzo and Danny, it is very clear that January 31 cannot come soon enough. (Holidays? What holidays?)

Grease: Live also stars Dancing With the Stars final four finisher Carlos PenaVega (who was likely too busy rehearsing his ballroom moves to make this particular shoot) as Kenickie and David Del Rio as Putzie. Ana Gasteyer will play Principal McGee (perfect casting is perfect), and Jessie J will get her Frankie Valli on and sing a live rendition of "Grease (Is the Word)" before the show begins.

The live special will air Sunday, Jan. 31 from 7 to 10 p.m. on Fox.
