Grease is the word! Everyone has been talking about the 3-hour outstanding performance of the cast and crew that brought Grease: Live to life on FOX on Sunday night.

The ambitious production drew an average of 12.2 million viewers, led by the performances of Aaron Tveit (Danny), Vanessa Hudgens (Rizzo), and Julianne Hough (Sandy).

One of the more notable songs from the motion picture version, “You’re The One That I Want”  which includes the words “electrifying” which was included in the telecast was spoofed on Monday by the Corinthos men of General Hospital!

In a posting on Maurice Benard’s Instagram, Chad Duell (Michael), Bryan Craig (Morgan) and Maurice (Sonny) belt out a refrain, well sort of, from Grease: Live!

Watch the guys after the jump! Then, let us know if you got a kick out of it … and which actor 🙂 would you cast in production of Grease ....  and if you watched Fox’s Grease: Live last night!

Love the sense of humor. I would have loved to have seen dome of Maurice’s moves…..he’s got them!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Some, not done.

CeeCee’s got chills [For Sonny] their multiplying, and shes losing control, by the power Maurice is supplying, its ELECTRIFYING! ELECTRIFYING! [Your husband says] “You better shape up, cause you have a man, and my heart is set on you, You better shape up, you better understand, to my heart you must be true!” Oooooo Ooooo O!

CeeCee

Thanks for that, my Timmmbo!!!! Best compliment you could have given me. You are a groundbreaker, my love. Lol.
No worries, though. Jude knows he’s the one and only for me. We fit…a little kidding around doesn’t hurt!! HaHa. Can you imagine my falling for Sonny? Right! When elephants next in trees!!
I loooove this. Looove you. Soon.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Nest, not next.

Hey, CeeCee…’when elephants nest in trees’…LMAO!!!!! Guess what…I’m still laughing!!!!! BTW, CeeCee, it’s too bad that you’re not a female comic (or whatever). I mean…some of your posts are so comical…and you make me LOL!!!!! Thank You.

Later.

CeeCee

Thank you, Jay. My jokes are king of corny. And, much of my speechifying comes from old Scotland; thanks to my Nanna and Granda. You should meet my husband, he really is funny. I cannot compare to Harry. Timmm or to jimh. Later, my friend.

Wow! All three of them should quit GH and head straight to Broadway! Is there no end to their talent?!

CeeCee
CeeCee

AWww, Lil’ Angel…I know, I know. But, it’s a spoof….a charicature of themselves. These three are known to put on a silly, stupid, immature act….all in fun. While I want to shoot Sonny with my eyes through the screen; as I said, I do get Maurice’s and ‘gang’ twisted humor. My brain sort of works the same way.
But, I do appreciate your sarcasm. Later.

None of them match Aaron Tveit’s performance. Aaron sang the songs better than Travolta did!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

No waaayyy…John and Olivia ARE the number one Danny and Sandy…tv live stage version was ok and i liked the diversity in the casting and i did enjoy-best part was the dancing but the movie version is far more superior!-Why its greased lightning…lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

Say it again, Jimmy!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, my! That’s like saying a two-bit artist paints LA GIOCONDA ( Mona Lisa) better than da Vinci. John Travolta and Olivia Newton John are a classic couple with a classic song.

Timmm

It was cool. I liked it. They seem to be close and having fun. Thats what life is all about. We throw anger at these guys characters all the time but this reminds us they are human and all three seem to be good guys.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Exactly, Timmm. They are human. As for myself, anyone with a sense of humor is welcome at my table. Anyone who can take a moment in time and monkey around to remind us to laugh at ourselves and appreciate the world’s laughter is food for the soul. A few years ago, my husband dressed up as Rizzo for Halloween. We laugh, we cry, we argue, we love. Later, babes.

Michael : ” the “power” most supplying”

Bryan : ” most supplying”

Maurice : ” it’s electrifying”

is this a spoof … in any way supporting… the Corinthos’ MEN hum drum

one of two things

damage control…. ( ie: Maurice Benard and Laura Wright last interview ! blech! )
don’t bite the hand that feeds you ?

this is not the best part of GH… in any way shape or form

the scene in the coffee warehouse… by the docks / waterfront

Sonny / Carly / Morgan

i’m dumbfounded…

there they go again… Carly and Sonny

Carly is in Morgans face…. about his lack of professionalism… he’s their son… he has no respect… according to Sonny for Carly…

once again… Morgan back at his parents…. I’m taking my meds !

Carly… argh! catches Sonny “standing”

Sonny tells his main henchman…. he lied once again to Carly

argh! i’m so done with the Corinthos’ Clan

before i’m told off… I love soapboxing pressing knocking bringing to the attention just how dull Port Charles is… with Sonny and Carly

seriously ? I actually feel for their kids… either that… or they have an inside joke… and think they run the whole shebang

dull

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
