The Performance | Headlining a live TV musical is a lofty challenge, but Vanessa Hudgens’ wickedly funny, wildly charismatic and deeply sympathetic performance as bad girl Rizzo in Grease: Live borders on miraculous when you remember that she lost her father to cancer the night before the telecast.
Hudgens’ pair of showstoppers were a study in opposites. “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” — a deliciously bitchy put-down of wholesome new acquaintence Sandy — allowed Hudgens to show off her comic chops as she donned a blond wig, swanned around a slumber party »
ABC’s Galavant wrapped its sophomore staging this Sunday with a war involving not three but four armies, a bit of dark (dark) magic and, when all was said and done, happy endings for some of the heroes.

Galavant may be wrapping up season two this Sunday, but the stars of the ABC musical comedy are already looking to season three—and they've got some pretty lofty goals on their celebrity cameo wish list. E! News recently sat down with stars Timothy Omundson, Mallory Jansen, Karen David, and Luke Youngblood (Galavant himself, Joshua Sasse, and his handsome face were sadly elsewhere) to find out which stars they'd love to see follow in the footsteps of Kylie Minogue, John Stamos, and Weird Al Yankovic with a guest spot should the series earn a renewal. As the video above reveals, they're really swinging for the fences. Before anyone can think about a third season, however, there's still the »
Timothy Omundson is singing a most happy tune.
