We've heard Amber and Uzo sing many times in the past, so we're so excited to see them do it live!
The latest casting news places the actresses among other talent like Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Stephanie Mills, Shanice Williams and David Alan Grier.
Make sure to catch The Wiz Live! when it airs December 3 on NBC!
