At her performance in Cerritos, California last night, Kristin Chenoweth had a surprise for her guests: Hairspray Live! star Maddie Baillio!
And Baillio didn't just walk on stage and say hi — she sang, too!
The pair performed Kristin's For Good together on stage last night, and WE have the EXCLUSIVE video of the performance for you now today!! Magical!!

Kristin Chenoweth's honesty is so beautiful!
For those who don't know, Lion tells the true story of Saroo Brierley, a little boy born in India who was adopted by a family in Australia after he became separated from his brother at a local train station in Khandwa. Twenty-five years later, Brierley was able to reunite with his birth family after locating his hometown through Google Earth satellite images.
According to the singer, the tale reinforces the beauty of adoption while also deftly addressing the issues adopted kids can go through.
The Broadway star explained:
On Saturday night, an ECSTATIC Drake stopped by Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood to take in Jennifer's highly-anticipated residency show return. It's more than clear Champagne Papi had a fabulous time!
In the adorable pics from the evening, the rapper posed for a selfie with J.Lo after he bragged about being the lucky one to hold her "diamond encrusted fitted" hat during the show.

Well, the show has come and gone, and the pop princess is incredibly emotional now that the experience is over.
On Thursday, the pint-sized starlet took to IG to express just how much she'll miss working alongside the super talented cast and crew.
In one snap, she showed herself all dolled up and in character, watching the TV magic unfold on a monitor. In the caption, the singer couldn't stop praising her time with the production, writing:
"I don't know where to start. crying so much today. my heart is with hairspray. my heart is in Baltimore with penny lou pingleton and seaweed and tracy and Mr. & Mrs. Turnblad the motormouth kids and the nicest kids. such a bittersweet feeling."
She continued to gush about the awesome opportunity, adding:
Hairspray Live! was everything we wanted and so much more!
