Vanessa Hudgens played Rizzo on Grease hours after her dad's death

By: Sarah Laing

Vanessa Hudgens pretty much stole the show during last night's live TV performance of Grease...and she did it just hours after her father's death. 

You'd never have guessed it when she was belting out "There Are Worse Things I Could Do", but behind Rizzo's shiny pink lady jacket was a real-life broken heart as the 27 year-old took to the "stage" the day after her dad passed away from cancer. 

Just before the show, Hudgens tweeted out the news, saying: "Tonight, I do the show in his honor."

Bravo, Vanessa!
