We wonder how original actresses Olivia Newton-John and Stockard Channing feel about the choices! Probably great because these two actresses are AH-mazing!

Both Hough and Hudgens were thrilled for very different reasons, with the Dancing With The Stars judge saying:

“Grease is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy. My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids. This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I’ve had in my career so far.”

Aww! Dreams are coming true!

And Hudgens, who got her big break in High School Musical, said:

“Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge. She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. I’m going to be a Pink Lady!”

Grease: Live is the title of the production for now, and it’s set to air on January 31st, 2016.

Will YOU be watching???
