Julianne Hough remarked in a recent interview held at the TCA (Television Critics Association) Panels that being in front of a live audience was both scary and thrilling at the same time.

"That live-audience element helps so much," she said at the recent TCA Panels prior to the performance, via Us Weekly.

"I always say that we can be in rehearsal or on stage and give 100 percent, but when there's an audience, there's this, like, reserve tank where ... it's this extra little oomph. That's where magic happens, and that's why I think we are so excited that we have the live-audience element," the dancer and "DWTS" judge shared.

She also said that she hoped the musical would capture the hearts of new fans as it captured hers many years ago.

"When people - our families, our friends - are introducing their kids for the first time to Grease, they are going to feel really involved as well. They are going to be singing along and dancing, I hope," remarked Hough in the interview.

"Grease Live" was a huge ratings hit for Fox. The live television event grabbed the network huge ratings, grabbing 12.2M viewers, bringing it on par with the debut of NBC's "The Sound of Music Live" during its debut in 2013, as reported by People Magazine.
