The last time Vanessa Hudgens was seen on television was in January of 2016 as “bad girl” Rizzo in Fox’s musical event Grease: Live. Her heartfelt performance was arguably the most praised of the entire cast, in part because of the personal strength and bravery she brought to it given that her beloved father had passed away the night before the live telecast. For Hudgens the show had to go on -- and she triumphed, especially with her profound rendition of the song “There are Worse Things I Could Do.” A year later the actress is thanking that production for her latest foray into television -- NBC’s Powerless, which premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
