The 1971 musical, Grease, is arguably one of the most iconic movies of all time. Any attempt at a modern reboot was guaranteed to be difficult, yet producers of Sunday's show went one step further and broadcast the performance live on TV.

Director Thomas Kail Looked Like He Would Be Crusin' For A Bruisin'

However, despite the challenge, Grease: Live was completely well received. Celebrities gushed all over Twitter with their messages of admiration and support.

Vanessa Hudgens was one particular highlight. The 27-year-old wowed audiences despite the tragic news her father had passed away just 24 hours before the show.
