Following the massive success of NBC’s production of “The Wiz: Live!”, FOX is gearing up for “Grease: Live” which will air on January 31st.

While the FOX rendition isn’t as diverse as “The Wiz” cast, we’re looking forward to Keke Palmer as the sassy Pink Lady “Marty Maraschino.”

We now have another reason…well three reasons to watch! Boyz II Men will also be starring in the production! They’ve snagged the role of Teen Angel which was played by Frankie Avalon in the 1978 movie version.

We hope the “Three Angels” scene is as colorful and dynamic as the film’s. Check out the scene where Avalon sings “Beauty School Dropout” as he appears in Frenchy’s vision. He comforts the Pink Lady after she leaves beauty school. Carly Rae Jepsen will play Frenchy in the FOX production.
