Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion. Grease is the way we are feeling, and oh my, are we ever feeling this 鈥淕rease Is the Word鈥 cover by Jessie J for the upcoming Grease: Live special.

In what will be the latest (and possibly greatest!) addition to the current trend of reviving beloved Broadway musicals for television, this newly released video lets us in on the updated version of the classic movie鈥檚 equally classic song. Jessie J adds her signature sass while staying true to the original sound to make this a tune that you鈥檒l love just as much on its own as when the pop star performs it live on Sunday, January 31.


鈥淚鈥檓 definitely keeping it as close to the melody as possible. I鈥檝e definitely thrown in what I kind of like to do and just put a little bit of me into it.鈥

There鈥檚 no doubt about that when you check out the fantastically fun video that鈥檚 been released, which not only shows Jessie J recording, but also features the rest of the cast prepping for the big day. Carly Rae Jepsen, Vanessa Hudgens, Keke Palmer and Julianne Hough, among others, pose for the cameras, practice their choreography and dance through the hallways of Rydell High, all while doing their best to get us excited about the upcoming production 鈥 and it totally works. Consider us utterly and completely excited!

But if that doesn鈥檛 get the Pink Lady inside of you tingling with glee, then maybe the fact that Boyz II Men will be performing the 鈥淏eauty School Dropout鈥 Scene and Joe Jonas鈥檚 band DNCE will perform at Rydell High鈥檚 school dance will do the trick.

Grease is the word, is the word that you heard, it鈥檚 got groove, it鈥檚 got meaning and鈥 you get the idea.
