Get ready to Ease on Down the Road!
NBC dropped the first teaser for The Wiz Live on Tuesday — and we finally get to see the all-star cast in their iconic costumes strolling down the Yellow Brick Road!
The clip reveals newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy who belts out one the musical's hit songs before saying the famous phrase:
"There's no place like home."
The 19-year-old is joined by Ne-Yo playing the Tinman, David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion, and Elijah Kelley as Scarecrow!
Check out the teaser (above) and watch The Wiz Live! on December 3 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC!
They're officially off to see the wizard!
We're still two months away from getting swept back to Oz for The Wiz Live!, but by the looks of things, we think it's going to be well worth the wait.
NBC released the first cast portrait for the musical on Tuesday, and we're really feeling the modern costumes!
From Shanice Williams' adorable Dorothy and David Alan Grier's confident Cowardly Lion to Ne-Yo's suave Tin Man and Elijah Kelley's rather creepy Scarecrow, they sure do look like they're having a blast!
Unfortunately, we still haven't gotten a sneak peek of Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Common, or the rest of the cast, but we have a feeling their costumes will be just as AH-Mazing.
Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8/7c on NBC (below)!!!
That's exactly how we imagine it!
There's no doubt that the Emmys were AH-Mazing last night.
But there may have been one thing during the awards that stole the show — Apple Music's commercial!
Of course the commercial was advertising Apple Music's "For You" feature which recommends songs for you based on your preferences and listening history.
Sure, that's fine and all, but let's get back to Taraji, Kerry, and Mary dancing and jamming out! And don't worry, there are supposed to be two more commercials with the ladies dropping this week!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazingly talented ladies rock out together (below) as we dream that this is what really happens when they hang!
We want more!
That's why we're so lucky the Roc Nation singer stopped by to perform an acoustic version of Uh Huh off his new EP Overthinking - Part 1 which is out now!
Fear not, the full length album titled Overthinking is due out in the fall!
But if you really need to hear some more, Romans is featured on Gorgon City's new song Saving My Life, and you can hear him on Home, off Naughty Boy's debut album Hotel Cabana.
Until then, ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing exclusive video of his acoustic version of Uh Huh (above)!
Who runs the Empire? It takes two!
First, Taraji was better than Just Fine — with special guest Mary J. Blige herself, while Terrence was all the Boyz II Men with a moving take on I'll Make Love To You.
Then Terrence was Rick James, b*tch! But his Brick House couldn't stand up to Taraji, who blew him away with Madonna's Material Girl!
But it was Lucious and Cookie's duet of Hard Out There For A Pimp that really knocked us out — and may have resulted in the first ever Lip Sync Battle tie!
Watch all the performances (below)!
There's nothing better than watching adversaries join forces — especially when it's to lip sync in harmonious glory!
Lip Sync Battle usually provides viewers with celebs pulling out all the stops to beat their opponent on stage!
The leading duo of Fox's hip hop soap opera united on stage to perform Hard Out There For A Pimp from Terrence's Hustle & Flow — but together, they slayed with ease!
Before the unity, Howard performed The Commodores' Brick House and Henson performed Just Fine — featuring a cameo by Mary J. Blige herself!
Check out all three clips (below)!
We're off to see the Wizard!
NBC is getting ready for their next live musical production The Wiz Live! as a follow up to their previous successes Sound of Music and Peter Pan!
Well now we have some WONDERFUL news from the world of Oz! Not only has the production found its Cowardly Lion, but they've cast their Dorothy too!
The Lion who only needs a little bit of courage will be played by none other than the three-time Tony Award nominee
