The 23-year-old looked ready for daytime TV as she came out to greet fans in an Ellen-inspired outfit, dancing her way to center stage to kick off the show.

Ahhhhh! This is so exciting!

We thought we'd never recover from Idina Menzel's heartbreaking split from Taye Diggs, but it looks like the Frozen star has finally found her happily ever after IRL!

On Friday, the Broadway great took to Twitter to announce that she and Aaron Lohr are engaged!

The elated bride-to-be wrote:

The Newsies alum and the gorgeous gal first went public with their relationship about a year-and-a-half ago, and it looks like they're planning many more happy years to come!

We can't help but wonder if Idina will be planning a Frozen-themed wedding?! LOLz!

But, it's more likely that Miz Mendel has had her fill of the Disney hit for a while. So, when it comes to that theory, we might just have to let it go!

Idina Menzel has played some iconic characters over the years, but who would have guessed her next big role would be on Lifetime?

According to Deadline, the Frozen actress is set to star in a Lifetime remake of the 1988 film Beaches!

Taking the role of CC, played by Bette Midler in the original Garry Marshall classic, the 45-year-old will also take on the film's iconic songs Wind Beneath My Wings and The Glory of Love!

But that's not all — Menzel will also record additional songs for the contemporary remake, which is set for a 2017 premiere!

Beaches tells the story of two young girls, CC and Hillary, who share an unexpected and lifelong friendship.

Menzel's CC is an aspiring singer trying to make it in El Lay when she is discovered by a big time director.

The yet-to-be-cast Hillary, played by Barbara Hershey in the original version, is the daughter of a civil rights lawyer who searches to find her own destiny.

Not too many actresses can do justice to a character already played by Midler, but we think Idina is perfect for this role!

Are YOU excited for Lifetime's remake of Beaches?

Well after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history took place just over a week ago, some of the biggest names in Broadway came together to record a cover of the 1965 hit What the World Needs Now Is Love to raise funds for the LGBT Center of Central Florida.

We're happy to report that the music video for this inspirational song dropped on Monday! Bless.

Other soloists include Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Matthew Broderick, Sutton Foster, and countless others. Not to mention, many of the talented artists involved with this song will perform the number on Maya & Marty at 10/9c on NBC. LOVES it!

We've got some wicked good news for you!

It's been over a year since we last heard about the movie adaptation of Wicked, but we're happy to report we just got our first official news about the film on Thursday.

Universal Pictures decided to surprise fans out of the blue with an announcement on Twitter this morning, revealing that Wicked: The Movie will be flying into theaters in time for… Christmas 2019!!!

WE HAVE TO WAIT 3.5 YEARS?!?!

While we now have a date to look forward to, there's still no word on who will be taking over Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth's iconic roles.

Although, we think it's pretty obvious Lea Michele and Kristen Bell were made to play Elphaba and Glinda, respectively!

Lea has more than proven her musical capabilities on years of Glee, and K-Bell has done the same in Disney's Frozen AND in live action in Reefer Madness: The Musical.

This could very well be the most anticipated movie musical of all time… so Universal better get started if they wanna be done by December 20, 2019!

Who do U want to see travel to the land of Oz??
