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?

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!!!
If you somehow manage to not tear up during any Whitney Houston song, then this cover will make your face a briny mess of weepy droplets!
Sam Smith performed the best cover of a Whitney song when he took on How Will I Know for SiriusXM and whoa be still our
throbbing penis beating heart!
We'll be the Frodo to your Sam, Sam! SRSLY! You have the voice of an angel!
Ch-ch-check out his heart wrenching cover that will stay with you all day long (above)!
Talk about SMIZING your way into a stellar career!!
Former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Yaya DaCosta was just cast as Whitney Houston in the late singer’s Angela Bassett-directed Lifetime biopic…
And she could be a dead ringer for Whit during her younger days!
Just LOOK at them together:
Since strutting her stuff on Cycle 3 of the modelicious reality competition show, Miz DaCosta has had successful roles on All My Children, Ugly Betty and in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
We can't wait for this beauty to bring the musical legend to life on the small screen!

And weeeeeee will always watch yooooouu…on Lifetime!
A movie about the late, great Whitney Houston is coming to Lifetime, and get this, Angela Bassett is directing! We'll be waiting to exhale for this to come out!
Lifetime released this statement about what the movie will entail:
And weeeeee will always love you-ahhhhh, Whitney Houston. But if this lawsuit is true, we do NOT love CPMG.
Whitney Houston's estate claims in a very new lawsuit that the former singer's personal belonging are being held by CPMG Mendham LLC, which is a company the estate contracted to sell her New Jersey house.
According to court documents, although CPMG sold the house in February, the company has allegedly repeatedly denied any access to remove Whitney's old things, which include a baby grand piano, pricey paintings, home furnishing, and much more!
The estate is also claiming that CPMG has had the locks changed and have shut the gates! But..but…but all her stuff?! Well the estate wants it back and damages!
We'll see how this lawsuit materializes!
