Last month, Olivia Newton-John extended a special invitation to TODAY's "Grease" superfan, Natalie Morales. The singer, songwriter and actress Morales joined the singer and actress on stage at her show in Las Vegas' Flamingo Hotel as an honorary Pink Lady, performing the classic tune 'Summer Nights' before a live audience. Check out the appearance below!

The musical GREASE is set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School and follows ten working-class teenagers as they navigate the complexities of love.

Grease was first performed in 1971 in the original Kingston Mines Theater in Chicago (which was co-founded by Harry Hoch and June Pyskacek, and included the Kingston Mines Cafe), located in an old trolley barn (now the site of a hospital parking garage). From there, it has been successful on both stage and screen, but the content has been diluted and its teenage characters have become less Chicago habitués and more generic. At the time that it closed in 1980, Grease's 3,388-performance run was the longest yet in Broadway history. It went on to become a West End hit, a hugely successful film, two popular Broadway revivals in 1994 and 2007, and a staple of regional theatre, summer stock, community theatre, and high school and middle school drama groups.
