Everyone remembers the infamous hand-jive scene from the original big-screen version of Grease, right? Well, the '50s dance made popular again in the 1978 film (and performed by countless high-school theater casts through the decades) has gotten an update for the production of Fox's Grease: Live! (which airs Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. ET).
