It's astounding!

FOX is just two months away from going back in time with its reimagining of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which means Laverne Cox, Victoria Justice, and Ryan McCartan must be shivering with antici… pation.

While the trio is undeniably the focus of the musical remake, the event's most iconic number, the Time Warp, is actually performed by three of the show's secondary characters — Columbia, Riff-Raff, and Magenta — with the rest of the cast as backup.

Video: The Rocky Horror Picture Show Gets Its First Full-Length Trailer!

Luckily, we have the pleasure of exclusively debuting the audio for Time Warp this lovely Monday morning… and we have to say, we're beyond impressed!

Not that we ever doubted Annaleigh Ashford, Reeve Carney, or Christina Milian, but getting to hear their modern takes on the classic has us even more excited for the musical movie!

Soundtrack producer Cisco Adler explains just how important it was getting Time Warp right:

"'Time Warp' is obviously the cornerstone to this soundtrack. Had to get it right but still had to flip it a bit, so we took it down south. You could say it's just a jump to the left…"

Ha!

But if you don't think you can handle waiting until it premieres on Thursday, October 20… then you're in luck — The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again soundtrack will be out the next day, October 21 — and will be available for preorder on Tuesday, August 16 on iTunes!

Ch-ch-check out the Time Warp like you've never heard it before (below)!!!

Be careful what you wish for…

As we pretty much already suspected, it sounds like Ariana Grande is paving her way back to Broadway now that she's made her mark on the music industry.

That's because while promoting Hairspray Live! at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday, Penny Pingleton herself flat out said participating in the NBC musical was "way much more fun" than her pop star career!

In fact, the 23-year-old singer — who got her start in Jason Robert Brown's 13 on Broadway before moving over to Nickelodeon — actually wants her role in the live TV musical to be understated, saying:
