'Grease: Live' Teaser: Carly Rae Jepsen Does the Hand Jive

The Wiz isn’t the only live musical coming to network TV. A little less than two months after NBC recreates that classic with Queen LatifahCommonMary J. BligeNe-Yo, Uzo Aduba and more, Fox will bust out its own take on Grease.

The first teaser trailer gives us a glimpse at the cast getting funky to the tune of “Born to Hand Jive.” The 1950s high school aesthetic is definitely intact.

Grease: Live goes down on Jan. 31, 2016. It’ll star Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy, Keke Palmer as Marty, Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, Aaron Tveit (Graceland, Gossip Girl) as Danny Zuko and—if the rumors as true—Nick Jonas will appear, too. Dancing With the Stars judge/former professional dancing partner Julianne Hough is in the top spot as Sandy.
