A new teaser for Grease: Live is here, and it's electrifying!
On Tuesday, Fox revealed the first promo for the live musical production, just one day after giving fans a sneak peek look
at the modern characters in costume on Twitter.
In the video, Julianne Hough
, who plays Sandy, appears in front of a row of lockers at Rydell High, dressed in the sexy signature black ensemble that Olivia Newton-John made famous in the 1978 classic musical romantic comedy. Next, we see Aaron Tveit
as Danny, looking dapper as ever in jeans and his T-bird leather jacket.
The rest of the cast joins in, each performing the "hand jive," one of the most iconic dances and songs from the film. Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen
stuns as beauty school dropout Frenchy, perfectly sporting the character's accidental orange toned hair, while High School Musical'
s Vanessa Hudgens
sasses it up in the video as the beloved Rizzo.
Also starring in the production are Scream Queens
actress Keke Palmer
as Marty; You're the Worst
's Kether Donohue as Jan; The Troop
actor David Del Rio as Putzie; and Big Time Rush
's Carlos PenaVega
as Kenickie. These four are no strangers to each other, as they've previously worked together. Palmer and PenaVega both got their start on Nickelodeon, while Donohue and Del Rio had roles in Pitch Perfect
. They really do
go together like ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong!

By the looks of what they've been sharing on their social media accounts, the cast is just as excited as those of us at home. Hudgens took to Twitter to repost a photo of herself with Hough and Tveit, writing, "Oh hey riz. So excited for Grease Live!!!!!! #RizzosBackBitches #GreaseLive."
Jepsen took to Instagram to share a photo of herself in her new Pink Ladies gear. "Keep cool, daddy-o," she captioned the snap.
"Guys!!! This is a FIRST LOOK," PenaVega wrote. "This photo has not been released and I'm super excited to share this with you all!! Here's me as Kenickie! Don't miss #GreaseLive Sunday, January 31 on FOX!"

Hough chimed in, tweeting, "Things are about to get cool." She also shared her excitement on Instagram, captioning a pic, "I can't wait to play the role of Sandy, and be with this incredible cast!"
Back In January, Hough said in a press release that playing the role of Sandy is something she has always dreamed of. "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," she revealed. "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."
