Keke Palmer has most definitely been killin’ it over the past year. Not only did she launch her very own BET talk show last summer (and word on the street is it’s set to come back soon), but she’s also gone on to star as the first Black Cinderella on Broadway; score a role in the upcoming fall series, Scream Queens; and most recently, it’s been revealed that Kekizzle will play Marty Marachino in Fox’s airing of Grease: Live. (She better get it!)
Like the events that NBC has put on the past couple of years — The Sound of Music Live and Peter Pan Live — Fox’s Grease: Live will have current stars playing the iconic roles of the Pink Ladies, Sandy, Danny, and the rest of the crew. The show will air on January 31, 2016 at 7 p.m. EST and according to IMDB, instead of the main characters falling in love over the summer, they’ll hook up over the holidays. We just hope that doesn’t mean that one of our favorite songs from the OG version, “Summer Nights” will be axed.
