Grease: Live, FOX’s first live TV musical premiered this past Sunday, and the extravagant production was a success. The performance received excellent television ratings, drawing in 12.2 million viewers, and the hashtag, #GreaseLive, flooded social media platforms.

The live performance underwent some difficulties throughout the 3-hour long special. There were audio glitches, a California storm affected outdoor scenes and one of the cast’s main characters, Vanessa Hudgens, lost her father to cancer the night before the show.

Most viewers and critics didn’t seem to notice the issues the cast and crew faced. During the performance, positive comments inundated Twitter and Facebook feeds, and afterwards outlets including CNN and Entertainment Weekly praised the iconic cast and sets.

Grease: Live and previous live televised musicals, such as Peter Pan, seem to be starting a new trend for the television industry. We’re looking forward to seeing more classic musicals televised in the future!

We’ll be back next week with more lists.
