‘Grease Live!’ Was a Sexy, Pelvic-Thrusting Triumph
She crafted a character with the perfect mix of bruised pride and vulnerable maturity, and performed the showstopper “There Are Worse Things I Could Do” with a kind of emotional dignity that deserves even more applause considering what was going on behind the scenes as she was performing: Hudgens’s father passed away the night before Grease went live. She dedicated her performance to him. That she managed such a star turn in spite of that is astonishing, and heartbreaking.
