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??

no title

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…

FOX just set the bar for live stage shows, and the Internet knows it.

While NBC was the first network to enter the live musical game, Grease: Live kind of blew everything they've done out of the water thanks to the audience, sets, and breathtaking talent from Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens, and the rest of the cast!

Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, & Vanessa Hudgens Absolutely Slayed Grease: Live — Watch Every Performance From The Live Musical HERE!

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.

Having a live audience and actual sets must actually make a difference — who would have guessed? LOLz!

Plus, Jessie J, Joe Jonas and DNCE, and Boyz II Men all stopped by to lend their musical talents to the cast.

Carrie Fisher Nearly Played Sandy In Grease! PLUS 10 Other Movies That ALMOST Had A Different Star!

no title

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

It's no question that Grease is one of America's favorite musicals of all time, but things could have been much different that what we know and love today.

We just learned the electrifying news that Star Wars superstar Carrie Fisher was actually the top choice to play Sandy before producer/screenwriter Allan Carr eventually went with Olivia Newton-John.

That's not all — Marie Osmond, Susan Dey, and Deborah Raffin were originally in the mix while John Travolta's star-making turn as Danny was first offered to Henry Winkler!

So which other classic movies were very nearly completely different??

P.S. If neither Olivia nor Carrie are your particular cup of tea, make sure to catch Julianne Hough as Sandy when Grease: Live! airs Sunday, January 31 at 7 p.m. EST on FOX!
