Jessie J kicks off the soundtrack with her version of the classic “Grease is the Word” and Joe Jonas makes an appearance with his band DNCE for a new version of their hit song “Cake By the Ocean,” among other tracks.
Julianne Hough will be playing the iconic role of Sandy in tonight’s production of Grease: Live on Fox and we can’t wait to see her shine on screen!
The 27-year-old entertainer took to her Instagram account before the live show to write a sweet note to her fans about how this role has changed her life.
“Tonight’s the night! It’s finally here!” Julianne wrote. “I can’t wait for you all to see and be a part of this magical journey we as a cast and crew have all been on! This truly changed my life! I’m so incredibly grateful! My 10 year old dreamer self has been reignited! All my love light and joy to you all!! Have an absolute blast tonight… And make sure you hashtag #GreaseLIVE tonight! Mwah Jules xoxo.”

The ladies joined the audience to watch the final scene of the dress rehearsal, which was “You’re the One That I Want” on the carnival set. They were joined by their show’s co-creator Ali Adler and they also met up with Didi Conn, one of the original Grease stars. See photos of them trying on the Pink Ladies jacket in the gallery!
We’re guessing this brought back memories for Melissa as she performed the song on Glee alongside her now-husband Blake Jenner. Watch that clip below.
There were a bunch of stars in the crowd at the event, which was the first run-through of the show with a live audience in attendance. In Julianne‘s cheering section were her fiance Brooks Laich, their mutual friend Teddy Sears, Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren, and hair stylist Riawna Capri.
