If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

That's why Fox brought us The Passion Sunday night — a contemporary retelling of the Passion of Jesus Christ story, just with more popular music.
The two-hour live show was narrated by Tyler Perry and starred Jencarlos Canela as Jesus, Trisha Yearwood as Mary, Chris Daughtry as Judas, Prince Royce as Peter, and Seal in his acting debut as Pontius Pilate.
With the show being both musical and faith based, several people took to Twitter to share their reactions to the best of the best moments (below):
What's glove got to do with it?
That was the question on everyone's mind during Tuesday night's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story when a pair of gloves changed everything in the calculated trial.
As the trial continued, viewers were able to see how professors at Harvard Law were using it to teach their classes — one professor even faxed a suggestion to lead defense attorney Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) to bring up drug cartels and their typically brutal murders to the court.
Jonnie took this cue and acted out having his throat sliced, giving the audience entertainment and a new conspiracy theory to eat up — that Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman could have been murdered because Faye Resnick (Connie Britton) owed a cartel money!
We can't remember the last time we saw a chase sequence this good on television!
One of the most infamous parts of the O.J. Simpson saga happened before the trial even started — his White Bronco chase with the LAPD.
The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story executed the police chase and subsequent standoff perfectly with an incredible sequence — and a riveting performance by Cuba Gooding Jr. – that took over Tuesday's entire episode.
The FX mini-series opened right after Simpson fled police, who had come to arrest him for the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
At Simpson's home, Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) shows O.J.'s other lawyer Robert Shapiro (John Travolta) that the former athlete left a suicide note — with a "happy face."
As news stations report that a statewide manhunt is underway, the public learns
With murder, mystery, mayhem, and just a dash of Kardashians — The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story started off with the perfect premiere episode!
While most of us know the conclusion to this story twenty years after the verdict was read, the FX drama carefully pieced together the case from the beginning while giving us a look inside the lives of all the major players involved.
Over on Bundy Drive, a man walking his dog comes across Nicole Brown Simpson's white Akita, who leads them to the bodies. The police soon
This actually makes a lot of sense.
It's pretty much impossible to have avoided hearing about the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, so we're not surprised that an issue about race in movies was a hot topic even at a TV show premiere.
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story had its El Lay premiere Wednesday night, and Oscar-winner/O.J. Simpson himself Cuba Gooding, Jr. was not shy about his opinions on the Academy's nominations process.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the Jerry Maguire star defended the Oscars due to the fact that awards shows actually have the least amount of power when it comes to equality, saying:
Now that's a Wicked performance!
We can't wait to see Aaron Tveit channel his inner John Travolta when he takes the stage as Danny Zuko in Grease: Live later this month!
To get us ready for what will be his breakout role, the Graceland star showed off his AH-Mazing pipes that won him the role in the live broadcast!
In a clip provided by Entertainment Weekly, the 32-year-old belts out Popular from the Broadway musical Wicked — and he gives the OG Glinda Kristin Chenoweth a run for her money!
If this is any indication, Tveit will absolutely SLAY when Grease: Live airs January 31 on FOX!
Ch-ch-check out the powerful performance (below)!
We're pretty excited for this!
The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is only a couple weeks away from giving us a dramatization of what went on behind the scenes of O.J. Simpson's trial in which he was accused of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
While we already received an exciting trailer just over a month ago, FX has just released a first look at the crime drama that follows the the events after the murders.
Not only that, but we get to hear from the stars of the show like Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson about the touchy subject of the new series!
Don't forget to tune in to the premiere on Tuesday, February 2 at 10 p.m. EST on FX!
