Jessie J Records ‘Grease Is The Word’ For ‘Grease: LIVE’


The opening theme song for the 1970s classic Grease called Grease is the Word is getting a face lift, courtesy of Jessie J.

Jessie J will be opening up Grease: LIVE (which stars Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Carlos Penavega) by singing the same song that opens that 1978 film.

“There’s no pressure like being the first one on stage. I love that rush of the nerves I’m going to get, I just feel very honored and very lucky that I’ve been asked to experience something like this,” she says, talking about her upcoming live performance in the musical.

In a behind-the-scenes video from Billboard, the camera takes you into the recording studio with the English pop star as she records Grease is the Word and dishes about her opening role for the live show.

The upcoming Grease: LIVE airs Sunday, January 31 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV before launching exclusively to all CraveTV subscribers on Feb. 19.
