It's almost been a year since Glee went off the air, but that doesn't mean the stars are completely out of each other's lives.

In fact, it was Amber Riley's 30th birthday over the weekend and she basically organized a mini-reunion with some of her former costars!

We can't wait to follow this yellow brick road!

There's less than a month until NBC airs its annual live musical, and these sneak peeks just keep getting better and better.

While we've gotten a look at what some of the stars of The Wiz Live! will be wearing on Dec. 3, Monday's all-new trailer for the stage production shows off what we can expect from the cast's more famous stars.

We're talking almost every main character — from Uzo Aduba and Amber Riley's Good Witches to Queen Latifah's titular Wiz.

In fact, Mary J. Blige's Wicked Witch of the West is the only person we've yet to see, so they must be saving the wickedest for last!

This is shaping up to be so much bigger than Sound of Music and Peter Pan and we could not be more excited.

Ch-ch-check out our latest look at The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC (above)!!!

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.

We knew she'd pull out all the stops for her baby shower!

Naya Rivera Dorsey keeps inching closer to giving birth every day, and over the weekend, she got to experience one of the milestones that comes along with having a kid.

The 28-year-old actress and her actor husband Ryan Dorsey had their closest friends and family over for their storybook-themed shower, and the cake is just too cute!

The pair got a custom sheet cake designed to look exactly like Naya's favorite children's book, Love You Forever.

We're even hearing that Naya's Glee co-stars Heather Morris and Amber Riley got to attend!

We do have one question though…

Could the blue cake mean she's expecting a boy?! Or is it just the same color as the book??
