Fox's Grease Live! musical extravaganza is airing Sunday night and it's the pop culture event I hoped it would be. But like most things, I thought the only thing that could possibly make it even more fun would be a dash of internet hero/supermodel Chrissy Teigen. And then, I saw the best news ever: Chrissy Teigen is live-tweeting Grease Live! and she's never seen the movie version. The awesomest person on the Internet documenting the hottest TV event of 2016 so far? It's the most amazing pop culture gift ever.
Teigen began the night by declaring that the rain storms in Los Angeles better not stop her from getting her Grease Live! on. "Storm knocked the power out at my house til tomorrow," she began her live-tweet awesomeness. "It's Grease LIVE not LATER so yeah I AM PISSED." But luckily, the skies cleared and let Teigen watch the musical for the very first time. She has some confusion about Danny ("Who is Danny?...Is Danny John Travolta?"), wondering about the state of feminism in this story, where Danny works (Five Guys?), and a plea for a Carrie Live! that really needs to come true, pronto.
Check out Chrissy Teigen's amazing tweets below for more burning questions.
El Nino Cannot Stop Grease Live!
Feminism In Grease Live!
A very keen observation about the musical, which takes place in the 1950s.
The Eternal Question: Who IS Danny?
It's like she got to the existential question of the musical.
And Then Who Is Sandy, Really?
Teigen is getting it.
Skipping Ahead A Bit
Nobody spoil Chrissy, you guys!
Questioning The Sexism Of The Story
Carrie Meets Grease?
And then Teigen made up a great movie mashup that needs to happen. Or just Carrie Live!
Movies Chrissy Teigen Has & Hasn't Seen
Fans began asking Teigen which movies she has and hasn't seen. For your reference, she hasn't seen The Goonies, The Princess Bride (gasp!), and The Sound of Music, which she's very ashamed about. She even recently saw Dirty Dancing (above).
After a break, Teigen got back to live-tweeting with the West Coast airing of Grease Live!
Asking The Tough Questions
The world may never know.
Standing Up For Sandy
I wonder what she would've thought of Olivia Newton-John's take on Sandra Dee.
...And Loving Another Pink Lady
Honestly, Jan kind of stole the show, so I'm glad Teigen noticed.
In Awe Of Everyone
Seriously, it's hard to pinpoint one moment of Grease Live! as its most impressive when an enormous ensemble managed to nail every scene.
