Worlds collide! ‘Grease: Live’ was performed on the same lot where ‘Fuller House’ was filmed and Andrea Barber (aka Kimmy Gibler) was quick to point out that Boyz II Men was seated on the Netflix series’ steps in one scene. How cool!?
Andrea Barber just totally filled us in on a fun little tidbit regarding Fuller House‘s connection to the Jan. 31 performance of Grease: Live! Both shows were filmed on the Warner Brothers lot in Los Angeles, and Kimmy Gibler totally spotted that her show’s set was shown on television during Grease — and Boyz II Men was sitting right on it!
Yup, the guys were totally seated on the steps from Fuller House during the opening number, in which Jessie J belted out “Grease (Is The Word)” and made her way around the entire lot. “When @BoyzIIMen is sitting on the #FullerHouse porch for @GreaseLive,” Andrea wrote on Twitter, with a photo as evidence. “#WINNING.” So cool!
The ’90s band was on-hand to sing a rendition of “Beauty School Dropout,” and they totally delivered, as did the rest of the highly-talented cast. Julianne Hough, 27, and Aaron Tveit, 32, held their own as the beloved characters of Sandy and Danny, made famous by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta, and the whole three-hour production basically went down without a hitch
The real standout, though, was Vanessa Hudgens, 27, who totally slayed as Rizzo, despite receiving the heartbreaking news that her father had passed away from Stage 4 cancer just one day earlier. The actress totally nailed her two solos, “Sandra Dee” and “There Are Worse Things,” and without a doubt made her dad beyond proud. SOOO impressive, we still can’t get over it!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Grease: Live? How did you like Boyz II Men’s performance?
