'Grease: Live!' Somehow Beats Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' for an Emmy news

Emmys, you have some 'splainin' to do!

Earlier this summer, Beyoncé's Lemonade ended up netting four Emmy nominations (because it debuted as an hour-long HBO special, and because Bey is queen). Based on the beautiful work that went into turning this immaculate album into an impressive visual album, many felt that Lemonade was a shoo-in to win something… but somehow, Lemonade got beat out in the Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special category by Grease: Live!. You know, that Fox live special that featured Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo and You're The Worst star Kether Donohue continuing to be everything.

Wait, what?

While Grease: Live! definitely had Broadway Twitter in its feels, who would've thought that it could snatch an Emmy from Beyoncé? You already know what's happening.

Some people are actually caping for Grease: Live, though.

Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel had the perfect line after Grease: Live took its Emmy.

Stay safe, Grease: Live castmembers. It might end up being a long night.
