Maybe I should give Vanessa Hudgens more credit.
The 27-year-old wrote earlier that day that she would dedicate the show in “honor” of her father, Greg, who died Saturday. I don’t want to even think about this being some kind of media stunt, so I’m going to put that out of mind. What I do hope it is is a really important moment in her life and will ultimately hurt, but bring her to higher emotional and creative levels. Dang. Here’s what the girl wrote on instagram right before the show:
“I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer,” Hudgens wrote when announcing his death. “Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers.”
Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit and Carly Rae Jepsen also starred in the live event, but everyone was all over Vanessa’s flawless performance.
Did you watch??? What did you think??!!
