Keke Palmer is ready to put on her dancing shoes and flex her vocals for the live production of the hit musical “Grease Live!,” set to air tonight. But before she wows us on stage, she gives TheYBF.com a backstage pass during rehearsals where she dishes on her girl crushes and getting star struck. Get it all inside….

Who’s ready to go back down memory lane at Rydell High?! We sure are.

We’re just hours away from Keke Palmer taking the stage as the mouthy, yet prissy Pink Lady Marty Maraschino on FOX’s live musical production “Grease Live!,” a live adaptation of the cult classic Grease.

The 22-year-old actress gives TheYBF.com a backstage pass at dress rehearsals leading up to her huge performance before a live studio audience tonight. And we were able to chop it with the YBF chick as she prepped for another run-through of the show.

Yesterday, the cast and crew held rehearsals before tonight’s big show. Before hitting the stage, Keke had a visitor in her dressing room, co-star Jordan Fisher (atop), who stopped by to show some love. Cute.

The actress/singer/dancer has been hitting rehearsals for weeks in preparation for the live production. She’s been keeping fans in the loop via her SnapChat and we noticed her co-star Vanessa Hudgens (above), who will star as Pink Lady honcho Rizzo, is all over that thing. We had to ask, who’s the Grease castmate that she has biggest girl crush on?

“Vanessa for sure,” Keke told exclusively tells TheYBF.com. “But honestly, all of the Pink Ladies. It has been such a pleasure working with them all.”

In sad news, Vanessa announced her father passed away after a battle with cancer last night. She said she’s still going to perform tonight in his honor. Condolences to her and her family.

While Keke is certainly a star in her own right, we wanted to know when was the last time she was star struck. Like, completely fanned out when she met another star. She revealed,

“Meeting Eve Plumb on set just now! She played Jan Brady on ‘The Brady Bunch.’ She is playing Mrs. Murdoch in ‘Grease Live’ and I just realized after all of these rehearsals who she was! Crazy right ??!!”

Yes, it is!

When asked if she would be returning for the second season of “Scream Queens,” she said, “I don’t know, we will have to just wait and see…”

We can’t wait to see Keke and the full “Grease Live!” cast bring the iconic musical to life!
