DNCE backstage at KIIS FM's Jingle Ball on Dec. 4, 2015 in Los Angeles.

The hop at Rydell High just got hotter: The Joe Jonas-fronted band DNCE will be the band at Rydell High's school dance in Fox's Grease Live!, according to People.

In the 1978 movie, the school dance band Johnny Casino and the Gamblers was portrayed by Sha Na Na, which performed "Born to Hand Jive" in the dance-contest scene. (Check out the original scene below.)

DNCE isn't the only group onboard: It was previously announced that Boyz II Men will portray Teen Angel and perform "Beauty School Dropout."

Grease Live! will air on Fox Jan. 31.
