Grease Live Vanessa Hudgens

Grease: Live: Vanessa Hudgens Thanks Fans for Support After Father's Passing

Having dedicated her performance in Fox’s Grease: Live to her father Greg, who on Saturday lost a battle with cancer, Vanessa Hudgens on Monday night expressed her appreciation to those who supported her during the difficult time.

“Thank you to everyone who watched and supported me last night,” the High School Musical alum shared via Instagram, accompanied by a still of her performance of “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” the live musical’s best-reviewed number (per TVLine readers).

Emotionally trying as it was, Hudgens called Grease: Live “one of the most incredible experiences.”

Fox’s three-hour production closed with an end card that said, “In Loving Memory of Greg Hudgens: June 22, 1950 — Jan. 30, 2016.”
