There are worse things she could do! Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon starred in her high school's production of Grease on Sunday, Dec. 8. The 17-year-old student played the role of Betty Rizzo — and certainly looked the part!

In one scene, Lourdes, styling shoulder-length dark hair, showed off her dance skills in a black-and-red dress on stage at LaGuardia High School in New York City. She showed some attitude while channeling the tough, sarcastic leader of the Pink Ladies, played by Stockard Channing in the 1978 film.

"[She was] really good," an eyewitness told Us Weekly of Lourdes' performance. "She is a great singer, dancer and actress and seemed completely comfortable on the stage. She also seemed like she was having a lot of fun with the part."

Luckily, Lourde's mother Madonna managed to make it to at least one of her shows. A source told Us that the 55-year-old Material Girl watched her daughter with Lola's father, Madonna's ex Carlos Leon, perform on Friday, Dec. 6, but kept a low-profile in the auditorium.

In the show's program, Lourdes' bio read: "She would like to thank her parents with all of her heart for giving her guidance and love and supporting her passions wholeheartedly."
