Ace Young: Go Grease Lightning!

Former American Idol heartthrob Ace Young prepares for his Broadway debut in the musical Grease at New York City’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Thursday, September 11.

In the Tony-nominated revival, the 27-year-old star will step into the role of Kenickie, best buddy to the male lead, Danny Zuko, through Jan. 18, 2009.

American Idol winner Taylor Hicks has been playing the role of Teen Angel since June and had his final performance earlier this week.

    Not hot

  • mandy

    omg ace young is sooo drop-dead gorgeous! sooo h-o-t-t hot!

  • Shannon

    *Like Carrie Bradshaw* Hello Lova!

  • Magnolia

    I bet he wishes he was Chris Daughtry, lol.
    Who knew the bald, brown eyed, short man would so trump the classic hunk.
    Daughtry all the way….. Ace Young is boring.

  • Carli

    It’s great to see Ace really getting into his role of Kenickie. He is playing it well and looks the part. Ace is a genuine person and can laugh at himself which is anything but vain. The only thing he is into… is playing Kenickie the best way he can… as a BADASS!

  • just me

    Looks good but………he isooooooo in loe with himself. ugh!

  • Give it up loser

    He will do as well as Crapenstien Maroulous did on Broadway. These American Idol folks need to give it a rest already. Kelly, Fantasia, Carrie are the only real winners of the show.

  • Cookie

    Ace is absolutely not the least bit in love with himself. You people who say that…do you know anything AT ALL about him?????
    He is the most down to earth, gracious, and charitable person you will ever meet. Just because he’s gorgeous, please don’t make judgements about his character.

  • babs

    Uh, I’ll take playful charismatic Ace any day. You can have boring Daughtry.

  • melissa

    soooo cute. I love him

  • Chris45

    Sooooo, let’s see. Because he’s good looking, you automatically assume he’s full of himself. Talk about shallow.

  • lisa

    what the heck does daughtry have to do w/this? never fails..a daughtry fan comes in and thinks this is all about wanting to trump daughtry…NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT THAT LOUD, OBNOXIOUS LOSER!

    Why this immature bickering over the 2 of the greatest friends in AI history? Ace and Chris Daughtry each have their great accomplishments, including a Grammy nomination, remember? Let’s stop this immature bickering and be happy for the successes of the other and support each other. Ace would encourage his fans to do so.
