Anyone going to be watching this tonight? If it was anything like The Sound of Music Live, I need pp to chat about it with!!

Cheers for the heads up.

I read recently that Vanessa Hudgens, who was in HSM, played her role of Rizzo hours after learning of her fathers death. Fair dues to her.

Destinysdaughter Wed 03-Feb-16 19:58:07

Wow that must have been hard for her!

Destinysdaughter Wed 03-Feb-16 20:03:26

What is Jesse J doing singing the theme tune??

WhatchaMaCalllit Wed 03-Feb-16 20:05:32

No idea...but she is seriously rocking it!!

Great seeing the original Frenchie as Jessie J was walking through (and did I catch a glimpse of another one of the original T-Birds)

Ooh thanks, I didn't know about this!

Not keen on Jessie J singing the theme. hmm

WhatchaMaCalllit Wed 03-Feb-16 20:14:28

It just makes you think that the guys who cast the original movie actors got it really right

Destinysdaughter Wed 03-Feb-16 20:15:41

No one can beat John Travolta!

WhatchaMaCalllit Wed 03-Feb-16 20:18:40

This guy is giving him a good run for his money though

Shoot - there are ads????

AndYourBirdCanSing Wed 03-Feb-16 20:20:01

Yes I like Danny

exWifebeginsat40 Wed 03-Feb-16 20:20:56

these things always look like they've been filmed at 10am on a Tuesday in some ITV warehouse. people in their best Bon Marche clapping away like their lives depend on it. lovely.

Destinysdaughter Wed 03-Feb-16 20:21:43

I remember queuing up at the ABC cinema to see this when it first came out, we were so excited!

WhatchaMaCalllit Wed 03-Feb-16 20:37:59

Not too bad so far...just wish there weren't so many ad breaks. I mean if you saw it in a theatre, there would only be one break between the first and second acts but this is every 15 minutes or so.

Destinysdaughter Wed 03-Feb-16 20:51:17

It's not really doing it for me tbh, keep comparing it to the film and it's a bit lacklustre in comparison!

Figgygal Wed 03-Feb-16 20:52:39

Julianne hough is my girl crush!! Love her she's so talented

MrsJayy Wed 03-Feb-16 22:28:49

We are loving it vanessa hudsons is a grand Rizzo the guy who is playing Danny was in les mis ive a soft spot for him but he is a teeny bit old to be Danny

MrsJayy Wed 03-Feb-16 22:29:57

Its Vanessa Hudgens tsk

multivac Wed 03-Feb-16 22:34:13

VH is nailing it.

But WTF stole Danny's charisma?

theredlion Wed 03-Feb-16 22:35:46

I'm watching it but I can't get over the fact that the characters don't look right to me unless they are the originals.

Travolta/Newton-John/Channing.
I can't get past the fact it isn't right without them!

MrsJayy Wed 03-Feb-16 22:39:50

Yeah I am like he is no John Travolta AND kenichie is a bit meh but still enjoying it

theredlion Wed 03-Feb-16 22:48:03

I'm enjoying it too, just, ya know smile

MockTheWeek Wed 03-Feb-16 22:52:31

I loved it! It was very cheesy but I think they pulled it off. I'm surprised by lack of advertising. I follow Juliane Hough on Instagram so I knew it was happening and had wondered when if we would get to see it. Then I happened to see the beginning of Loose Women today where they talked about it. Didn't see any other promotion on UK TV though.
