While there's still over a week to go before we officially hit Halloween, the spirit of the haunted holiday came early this year all thanks to The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again.
The FOX made-for-TV musical movie finally followed in Grease: Live's footsteps Thursday night, and we have to say… we were impressed!
It's been about ten months since FOX first entered the made-for-TV musical movie realm with Grease: Live, but they went full-on film for The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again on Thursday.
While Laverne Cox, Ryan McCartan and Annaleigh Ashford seriously stole the show, who would we be if we didn't give credit to the standout performances from Victoria Justice, Staz Nair, Reeve Carney, or Ivy Levan?!
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.
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…"
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!

Though Peck gave Milian a run for her money with his own booty bouncin' performance of Sisqo's Thong Song — complete with pulling up his own thong over his shoulders in what we assume was the ultimate wedgie.
Ultimately, it was Josh's (beach) balls out performance that ensured his victory. He sure went all out!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see both performances — and see the actor's victory speech (below)!
