Well, the show has come and gone, and the pop princess is incredibly emotional now that the experience is over.
On Thursday, the pint-sized starlet took to IG to express just how much she'll miss working alongside the super talented cast and crew.
In one snap, she showed herself all dolled up and in character, watching the TV magic unfold on a monitor. In the caption, the singer couldn't stop praising her time with the production, writing:
"I don't know where to start. crying so much today. my heart is with hairspray. my heart is in Baltimore with penny lou pingleton and seaweed and tracy and Mr. & Mrs. Turnblad the motormouth kids and the nicest kids. such a bittersweet feeling."
She continued to gush about the awesome opportunity, adding:
"i can't put into words how grateful i am not only to have played one of my favorite roles in the world, or to have been lucky enough to sing the songs I grew up singing religiously in the car every day on the way to school, but to have been introduced to the most incredibly beautiful people i've ever met. I feel so blessed and so happy and so sad. But mostly, so so grateful. ♡"
