Maybe I should give Vanessa Hudgens more credit.
Hours after revealing that her father lost his battle with cancer, the girl went out, put on a weird wig and performed in Fox’s Grease: Live on Sunday night. DANG.
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??!!

Of course she did!
I don’t know what deal with the devil happened that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum get like, he biggest celebs in the world to come onto their lip sync show, but they DO. And they are BIG. So big that Beyonce herself decided to pay the show a lil visit…
Channing dished to Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday about how he managed to get Queen Bey to join him on stage for a cameo. He explained:
“I won’t even tell you what I had to do to essentially get her assistant’s phone number. I didn’t even have the intention of her coming … I wanted to bring like a cardboard cutout of Beyoncé out, just to be funny, and then ultimately I ended up having to meet Beyoncé doing Beyoncé and that was definitely the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.”
The two didn’t even meet up to rehearse the bit!
“She’s like Keyser Söze. You know she exists, but you never see her until all of a sudden, you’re just like, ‘It happened, wait that was her, right?'”
Oh, it happened. When Bey graces you with your presence, you KNOW. (Also, please tell us what you had to do to get her assistant’s phone number. Please pretty please? Preferably something with your shirt off?)

Plus some Big Bang Theory people. Does that count as a reunion? Obvi, liquor was involved.
While a Friends reunion has always been in the works, it wasn’t as conventional as most of us thought (no TV special, anyway). This pic is about the closest thing anyone has to a reunion, which honestly, is enough for me.
Johnny Galecki posted this pic to instagram of the Friends and Big Bang cast, who sat at the same table and said words together at NBC’s tribute to James Burrows which taped in L.A. Matthew Perry was in London doing some play, so he couldn’t make it, which means it’s also an incomplete reunion, but a reunion nonetheless!

The original show may have gone off of the air in 2002…but it’s obviously still a fan favorite.
The Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny sci-fi series went off the air when network television ratings were at an all-time high… which is why it’s so amazing that the show’s reboot debut (say that three times fast) had 16.19 million viewers. To put that into perspective, that’s a higher rating than what the final two seasons of the original series were able to pull in, which is pretty freaking impressive.
According to PerezHilton, having a huge football game probably helped with the huge viewership,but honestly, I’m pretty sure Monday’s regular time slot will most likely also be a hit.
Did you watch the new X Files?! Tell us your thoughts on if the show is better/worse/same as the original!
