Vanessa Hudgens had her boyfriend Austin Butler by her side giving his support during the first dress rehearsal for Grease: Live on Friday (January 29) in Los Angeles.

The 24-year-old actor can be seen standing in the bleachers alongside his friend Oliver Trevena while Vanessa performs a scene just a few feet in front of them.

We’re sure that Austin will be there to support Vanessa again tonight at the live show, just hours after her dad died from cancer on Saturday night.

Vanessa helped Austin through a similar situation in 2014 when his mom passed away.

Grease: Live's Pink Ladies Are Front & Center for 'Billboard' Mag

Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens, and Carly Rae Jepsen are denim babes on the brand new cover of Billboard magazine.

Here’s what Grease: Live‘s Pink Ladies had to share with the mag:

Carly on working with her cast mates: “With the girls, it’s really easy. You’re braiding each other’s hair, grabbing each other’s asses. We’re just girlfriends in that way, like the Pink Ladies.”

Vanessa on the pressure of a live show: “The live aspect doesn’t freak me out. It’s a bit nerve-wracking.”

Director Tommy Kail on changing some of the racist and homophobic lines from the original: “We can move past some of those [politically incorrect] things and still have the integrity of the story.”

FYI: Julianne is wearing a Levi’s vest.
