Could Vanessa Hudgens make a more perfect Rizzo? She absolutely nailed her performances of ‘Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee’ and ‘There Are Worse Things I Could Do’ in ‘Grease: Live,’ despite coping with the tragic loss of her father just one day before the show. Check out clips here!
When Vanessa Hudgens said she was going to do Grease: Live in her dad’s honor, she must have meant that she’d bring her A-game because she was unbelievable! Vanessa, 27, perfectly channeled her character, the Pink Ladies leader Betty Rizzo, throughout the entire show — but when she sang both “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee” and “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” she could’ve practically fooled us as the original!
During the iconic sleepover scene, Vanessa flawlessly performed the tune in the exact way Stockard Channing did in the 1978 classic. Dancing around the bedroom with a short blonde wig, Vanessa had us laughing with her expressions and movements that were spot-on Rizzo impressions. Not to mention, her voice was totally on point! See for yourself in a clip below!
As if that performance wasn’t enough to convince us that Vanessa was the best choice to play Rizzo, she blew us away with her vocals on “There Are Worse Things I Could Do.” The song required her to bring out the more emotional side of Rizzo during her pregnancy scare, but Vanessa had no problem giving another perfect portrayal!
Prior to the show starting, Vanessa received an outpouring of love from her celeb friends and fans for her brave decision to perform the day after her dad’s death. Plus, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that her boyfriend Austin Butler has been the best supporter. No wonder Vanessa was so fantastic as Rizzo! She certainly honored her father in the most amazing way possible!
