vanessa hudgens thanks fans

Vanessa Hudgens is such a champ!

On Monday, the High School Musical alum took to Instagram to thank the fans who tuned in to watch Grease: Live — which totally crushed it in the ratings! LOVES it.

Of course, the show must've been such an emotional experience as the 27-year-old revealed that her father passed away after a battle with cancer mere hours before the big production. How sad!

We're hopelessly devoted to their love!

Vanessa Hudgens was one of the breakout stars of Grease: Live on Sunday, and the unfortunate timing of her father's death the night before the show just made her performance all that more emotional.

Well, we think we may have figured out how she stayed so grounded for the three-hour long musical despite her situation, because she had a familiar face in the audience.

No… it wasn't one of her High School Musical castmates, it was her boyfriend Austin Butler!

The Shannara Chronicles star can be seen sitting on the bleachers with the T-Birds in one of the early scenes, and he even tweeted out his support to Vanessa, saying:

Grease: Live's Numbers Are HUGE — But Did Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, & Vanessa Hudgens Dethrone Sound Of Music Live?

no title

They've got ratings, and they're multiplyin'!

Grease: Live may have captured America's hearts Sunday night, but did the new name in live TV musicals do enough to dethrone its predecessors?

Believe it or not, Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the cast pulled in an impressive 12.18 million viewers — a number practically unheard of for FOX aside from Empire and The X-Files revival.

Unfortunately for the T-Birds and Pink Ladies, however, their 4.3 rating was just a note shy of beating Carrie Underwood's 4.6 for The Sound of Music Live… but that one was critically panned, so we know who the real winner is.

Grease did manage to surpass both of the other NBC musical outings — The Wiz Live and Peter Pan Live – so hopefully this means we get to see Grease 2: Live in the near future!

Do U think Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan will be able to scare up similar numbers with Rocky Horror Show this December??

Tell us about it, studs.

Now that we've had some time to sit and think about the amazing production of Grease: Live, we're still just in awe of what FOX was able to accomplish with their take on the live TV musical.

Sure, NBC was the first network to try to make theater cool again, but Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens, and the rest of the cast really shined on Sunday night, blowing us away visually, technically, and sonically.

But don't just take our word for it — the critics are all in agreement that Grease: Live was certainly the bee's knees.

Plus, it didn't hurt that we got tons of star-making moments from Kether Donohue, Keke Palmer, Elle McLemore, Jordan Fisher, and Haneefah Wood!

However, everyone did agree on one thing… Mario Lopez was kinda the worst…

This is how you do a live musical!

While Sunday may have gotten off to a sad start due to the unfortunate passing of Vanessa Hudgens' father, we have a feeling he'd be extremely proud of her performance in Grease: Live.

Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Carly Rae Jepsen, Keke Palmer, Kether Donohue, Carlos PenaVega, David Del Rio, Jordan Fisher, Andrew Call, Elle McLemore, Noah Robbins, and Vanessa brought Grease to life for FOX in a way NBC hasn't been able to capture with The Sound of Music, Peter Pan, or even The Wiz.
