Even though Donald Trump is mad about it, seems like Vice President-elect Mike Pence is taking his booing in stride!

As if we weren't already excited for Hairspray Live!, we now have two more reasons to be super stoked!

Original Tracy Turnblads Ricki Lake and Marissa Jaret Winokur will be gracing the world with their presence in NBC's live musical, which will totally bring the new adaptation full circle!

For those of you who may not remember, Miz Lake portrayed the leading lady in John Waters' 1988 film, while Marissa took on the larger-than-life role in the original Broadway cast alongside Harvey Fierstein, who is reprising his role as Edna for the upcoming broadcast.

And, Miz Winokur is dishing exclusive deets to us about the lovely ladies' cameos in the Maddie Baillio-led remake!

The 43-year-old explained that her former costar had been working to come up with a fun part for the actresses, but the Fever Pitch alum confessed that she and the former talk show host were just thrilled to be included, saying:

the women of hairspray

With NBC's live production of Hairspray drawing closer, we can't help but think of all the incredible women who've starred in the lead role over the years.

As you may recall, Ricki Lake made the character Tracy Turnblad famous in John Waters' 1988 hit film Hairspray. Marissa Jaret Winokur would then go onto win a Tony for the same role in the Broadway adaptation of flick. Now Maddie Baillio is taking the reigns as the plus-size optimist for the highly anticipated televised production. So it's safe to say the pressure is on — especially since so many young girls look up to Tracy!

However, prior to her Hairspray fame, Miz Lake didn't ever think she'd get the chance to play a show stopping lead. In a sitdown with the others (named above), the 48-year-old recalled to People:

The Hairspray Live! Cast Just Killed The Mannequin Challenge During Their Star-Studded Rehearsal! Watch!

| Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesJennifer HudsonKristin ChenowethDerek HoughHIGHlariousFunnyAmazingAriana GrandeViral: News

You can't stop the beat… unless, of course, you press pause!

And, that's exactly what the cast of Hairspray Live! did when they took on the Mannequin Challenge! On Thursday, most of the show's stars held perfect poses for nearly two minutes in their take on the viral trend.

Rather than playing Rae Sremmurd's song Black Beatles in the background like most clips have done, the NBC musical aptly opted to use their cast's recording of You Can't Stop The Beat!

The AH-mazing video shows off stars Derek Hough, Shahadi Wright, Dove Cameron, Garrett Clayton, Harvey Fierstein, Martin Short, Ephraim Sykes, newcomer Maddie Baillio, and the ensemble cast frozen in the midst of rehearsals.

Ariana Grande's pop star presence was only represented by her character photo displayed on one of the monitors, but that's probably because the singer didn't even start rehearsals until Friday, according to her Snapchat story.

Watch the talented cast totally slay in the HIGHlarious clip (above)!

This vid is soooo good that we can't WAIT to see how the live musical turns out!

Plus, we're still dying to see fellow cast members Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Hudson, Sean Hayes, Andrea Martin, Rosie O'Donnell, and Billy Eichner in action!

Hairspray Live! airs on December 7 on NBC!

Season 23 of Dancing With The Stars sure has been exciting with perfect scores and some controversy, and Monday night's episode kept the good times going as they went Broadway for Showstoppers Night!

As usual, there were plenty of incredible performances like Laurie Hernandez and Valentin Chmerkovskiy's PERFECT Tango, or Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko's impressive Waltz. That's right, Gleb scored a 40 WITH an injured knee!

But what we REALLY loved was the Team-Up Challenge that paired Laurie and Val with Kramer and Savchenko as they did a contemporary dance — and yes, of course the foursome scored a perfect 40! That means both pairs of dancers earned two perfects on the night!

Sadly, another couple had to say goodbye and this week that pair was
