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
