Here you go, Whitney Houston fans!

Yaya DaCosta is stepping into some big shoes to tackle the role of the legendary Miz Houston for the Lifetime biopic.

And finally, FINALLY we are seeing a first look at Yaya as Whitney!

Yaya went full-on Whitney to channel the singer's 1987 Whitney album. In this first look, the former America's Next Top Model contestant does seem to have the look and her bubbly personality down pretty damn well.

The biopic, currently titled Whitney Houston, has just started filming with Angela Bassett in the director's chair.

Even though Whitney's family isn't fully backing this project, we're sure Yaya and Angela will do their best to do Whitney right.

But what do you think about Yaya as Whitney?

Do you think Yaya looks like Whitney?

Interviews Gone Bad! These Are The Best & Biggest Celebrity Walk Offs Of All Time!

Oooo, it's so hard to watch and yet we can never look away!

Those awkward TV moments when a celeb decides they'd rather walk out of an interview rather than face another question!

It happened to the incomparable Joan Rivers this week (see below) when she stormed off camera after CNN's Fredricka Whitfield asked one too many times about the comedienne's controversies over the years!

But Joan's not the only celeb to put an abrupt end to a sit down! Look at all of these other stars who have gotten up and gotten out in the middle of a LIVE interview!

See all of the uncomfortable conversations…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
