On Sunday 31 January 2016, Grease Mania hit the states with a star studded live broadcast. The show and it's audience went together like Rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong. In fact it was such a success that ITV 2 decided to show it here in the UK on Wednesday 3 February 2016 and that went down like Shoo-bop sha wadda wadda yippity boom de boom.
This map takes 9,000 tweets with the hashtags: #Grease, #GreaseLive or directed at the official Twitter page; @GoGrease. The Pink Lady themed dotted show just how many of us around the world sat down to Grease Live this week.
People were excited over the star-studded cast:

Only caught the last 30 mins but Grease Live is astonishingly good. So slick. Come on UK, what you gonna do to top it? We've got the talent!— Matt Hemley (@MattHemley) February 3, 2016
Consider this: If “grease" is the word, how is it possible that “bird" could also be the word?— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) February 3, 2016
I haven't had a chance to watch it myself yet but I rushed home to record it when I learned it would be playing on ITV2. Despite that, I have heard a lot of feedback about Vanessa Hudgens, who played Rizzo. Miss Hudgens made an announcement hours before going on stage:Grease Live 😍😍😍😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼— Jessica Daley (@jessicacaca7) February 3, 2016
I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers.— Vanessa Hudgens (@VanessaHudgens) January 31, 2016
She mostly certainly made him proud:Tonight, I do the show in his honor.— Vanessa Hudgens (@VanessaHudgens) January 31, 2016
