Spinners??
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I swear the O'Jays performed on this special instead of the Spinners. I do not recall hearing any Spinners tunes only O'Jays songs. For example one of the songs the O'Jays did was their classic hit "She Used to Be My Girl". Nope, no Spinners to my knowledge.

Frankie Valli completed his comeback by singing the title track GREASE to open the show.

Nice to see some of the cast of Kotter arrive to support John Travolta at this premiere.

Also this special aired originally for one hour, not 30 minutes.
