Watch it go down (below)!!!
Maddie Baillio's stage presence is undeniable!
On Tuesday, the outgoing newcomer stopped by the Today Show to make the EXCITING announcement that she'll star as Tracy Turnblad in NBC's next big musical event, Hairspray Live!
For those who don't know, Tracy is the main character of the beloved and iconic musical. Over the years, stars like Nikki Blonsky and Ricki Lake have taken on the coveted role.
Luckily for us, Baillio gave us a personal introduction alongside comic icon Harvey Fierstein who will play her stage-mom Edna. In the adorable interview, the 20-year-old explained how she beat out 1,000 other hopefuls to don Tracy's big hair!
To make the situation even sweeter, Maddie revealed that she was just a college student living in League City, Texas before she got her big break:
Keke Palmer may be young but she’s got all the talent one needs to be a successful talk show host!
The 20-year-old has just signed on to host her own daily talk series on BET, focusing on millennials and the issues they care about!
The Keke Palmer Project (working title) will have a 4-week trial run starting in July. Her show is being executive producer by Judge Mathis!
And even though her series hasn’t even aired yet, Keke is already breaking records!
She’s now the youngest person to ever host their own talk show! She beats out Ricki Lake who got her gig hosting her own daily series at age 25!
You go, girl!
Don’t go assuming Keke is done acting though! She’s also set to star in Drew Barrymore’s new horror movie, Animal. AND Keke will have a six-episode arc on the Showtime series, Masters of Sex!
Wow! Keke is KILLING it!
Congratz on the new show, Miz Palmer!

We're still so sad we've lost such a legend as Mickey Rooney, and tons of celebs have taken to social media to express their sadness of his passing, and remembrances of the late, great actor!
It's clear from such an outpouring of response that Mickey was truly well loved amongst his peers.
Ch-ch-check out the reaction to Mickey's death on Twitter…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Back in 1989, there was no Twitter, but there were some incredible actors and actresses who would grow up to have one! Ha!
This clip is from the Young Hollywood musical number during the Oscars that year, which was introduced by Lucille Ball and Bob Hope. It’s been too long since we heard that contagious Lucy laugh! Sadly, she passed away just around a month after this moment.
Ch-ch-check out the
old New Hollywood magic (above)!
Oh whoa, this sounds pretty intense!
Ricki Lake is teaming up with her friend & documentary maker Abby Epstein to battle another issue that is important to them!
Birth control pills!!
The ladies are tackling the possibly unknown side-effects of the pills and what effect it has on women's bodies!
Ooo this makes us antsy for Halloween early this year!!
Hosted by John Waters, the 2013 Johnny Ramone Tribute featured a screening of the classic Johnny film, while co-stars Ricki Lake, Traci Lords and Joe Dallesandro mingled in attendance as well.
Dita Von Teese was also present, bringing her usual unique charm, but the shining star of the night was definitely Handsy — the beautiful creature that's formed when Johnny and Amber lock hands. LOLz!!
