‘Grease: Live’ Casts R&B Group Boyz II Men as its Teen Angels

The current members of Boyz II Men are reviving their teen angel status.

The R&B group has joined Fox’s production of “Grease: Live” for a three-part harmony version of the guardian angel character made famous by Frankie Avalon in the 1978 movie. They will cameo in Fox’s special to sing the classic song “Beauty School Dropout,” a number normally addressed toward the character of Frenchy (played by Carly Rae Jepsen in this version).

The group announced the news via social media.

The vocal group, which rose to fame as a quartet, is known for 1990s hits like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You,” “One Sweet Day” and “Motownphilly.” In 2014, it released its latest album, “Collide.”

Grease: Live” airs at 7 p.m. Jan. 31 on Fox and will be recorded in front of a live studio audience. Other cast members include Julianne Hough as Sandy, Aaron Tveit as Danny and Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo.

“Grease: Live” isn’t the only musical Fox has in the works. It is also developing a version of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” that stars Laverne Cox as mad scientist Frank-N-Furter and Ryan McCartan and Victoria Justice as the square couple Brad and Janet who are invited up to the lab.
