Look out, fellow T-Birds and Pink Ladies! Fox has just announced that Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens are set to take on two of our favorite characters for Grease: Live.

According to Celebuzz, Julianne will be stepping into the shoes of Olivia Newton-John and playing the role of good girl Sandy, and Vanessa will be singing about all the worse things she could do as Rydell High bad girl and Pink Lady, Rizzo.

“Grease is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy. My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids," Julianne said in a statement. "This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I’ve had in my career so far.”


Vanessa also commented on her role, saying "Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge. She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. I’m going to be a Pink Lady!"

While the show isn't set to air until January 31, 2016, we are eagerly anticipating seeing what these ladies can do with these roles.

Also, time to brainstorm who would make the perfect Danny Zuko. Any ideas?
