Oh Yeah

You’re probably expecting me to say something about the whole election thing, since it’s a big deal I guess. Well, too bad. Instead, I’m going to talk about “Grease Live”.

Was that awesome or was that AWESOME? Seriously. I loved it. Everything about it. The performances were great, the cinematography was nothing shot of incredible, and the choreography was brilliant.

I can nitpick it just like the best of ’em, but really, why would I? It was fantastic, so let’s all enjoy it. Also, NBC should crawl under a rock and never leave. Fox just embarrassed them. It made both of their shows look like crap in comparison.

Highlights: I really loved that they included “Those Magic Changes”, a personal favorite song that got relegated to a brief background bit in the movie (though even this version doesn’t hold a candle to Ben Laxton’s). Whoever sang it had the perfect voice for it. KeKe Palmer as Marty was fun. “Freddy My Love” was great. And the Hand jive was phenomenal. Fantastic choreography!

I’ll also give the obligatory but well-deserved kudos to Vanessa Hudgens, who performed despite losing her father the previous day and had an excellent performance as Rizzo. I thought she killed “Sandra Dee”.

Anyway, yeah. “Grease Live”. You can find the whole thing for free on Fox’s website if you missed it. Go check it out. It’s awesome.

(Okay, about the vote thing: Meh. It’s Iowa. Iowa is weird. This means pretty much nothing in terms of the overall results.)

    grease live was awesome, vanessa hudgens’ legs were great, but i’m going to disagree with you on nbc, i think only peter pan was bad, i thought the wiz & sound of music were great.

    • Carrie Underwood was no good in “The Sound of Music”. “The Wiz” badly needed an audience. A lot of the jokes fell flat because they were designed for an audience. Plus, the way Fox did it was just inherently cooler.
