‘DWTS’ Julianne Hough & ‘Gigi’ Vanessa Hudgens talk Sandy and Rizzo in Fox's ‘Grease Live’

Fox’s Grease Live is almost here and star Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars) is opening up about what goes on behind the scenes. Meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers, High School Musical, Gigi) is going to be showing us a side of Rizzo that we haven’t seen on the small screen.

Recently, Julianne Hough spoke to US Weekly about having to make quick costume changes behind the scenes:

"It’s pretty intense behind the scenes! My only little nervous concern -- but it's all going to work out in the end -- is after the big dance, and I've just been dancing really, really hard and breathing heavy ... and I only have a minute and a half to run to Sandy’s house to sing 'Hopelessly Devoted.'"

While Hough is stripping off literal layers, Vanessa Hudgens is adding a few metaphorical layers to her character Rizzo:

“Rizzo is just as fabulous as she was, with all the attitude, but you get to see her walls fall a little more than you did in the film."

Be sure to check out the all new production of Grease Live, tonight at 7:00 PM eastern on Fox.

The official TV Guide description for Fox's Grease Live musical event, reads:

“Adaptation of the iconic American musical set in 1959 at Rydell High School, where the aftermath of a summer romance between Sandy, the goody two-shoes new girl, and a greaser named Danny presents coming-of-age challenges to each of their reputations. Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit and Vanessa Hudgens star.”
