They're officially off to see the wizard!

We're still two months away from getting swept back to Oz for The Wiz Live!, but by the looks of things, we think it's going to be well worth the wait.

NBC released the first cast portrait for the musical on Tuesday, and we're really feeling the modern costumes!

From Shanice Williams' adorable Dorothy and David Alan Grier's confident Cowardly Lion to Ne-Yo's suave Tin Man and Elijah Kelley's rather creepy Scarecrow, they sure do look like they're having a blast!

Unfortunately, we still haven't gotten a sneak peek of Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Common, or the rest of the cast, but we have a feeling their costumes will be just as AH-Mazing.

Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8/7c on NBC (below)!!!

Who runs the Empire? It takes two!

Stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson took to the stage Thursday night for a Lip Sync Battle of the sexes, and it was a close call!

First, Taraji was better than Just Fine — with special guest Mary J. Blige herself, while Terrence was all the Boyz II Men with a moving take on I'll Make Love To You.

Then Terrence was Rick James, b*tch! But his Brick House couldn't stand up to Taraji, who blew him away with Madonna's Material Girl!

But it was Lucious and Cookie's duet of Hard Out There For A Pimp that really knocked us out — and may have resulted in the first ever Lip Sync Battle tie!
