Here you go, Whitney Houston fans!

Yaya DaCosta is stepping into some big shoes to tackle the role of the legendary Miz Houston for the Lifetime biopic.

And finally, FINALLY we are seeing a first look at Yaya as Whitney!

Yaya went full-on Whitney to channel the singer's 1987 Whitney album. In this first look, the former America's Next Top Model contestant does seem to have the look and her bubbly personality down pretty damn well.

The biopic, currently titled Whitney Houston, has just started filming with Angela Bassett in the director's chair.

Even though Whitney's family isn't fully backing this project, we're sure Yaya and Angela will do their best to do Whitney right.

But what do you think about Yaya as Whitney?

Do you think Yaya looks like Whitney?

    Whitney had more of a softness to her and almost a look of vulnerability. This woman's face is too angular and she lacks that sparkle in her eye.

    Lipstick color is wrong but otherwise the look is very accurate.
