Instead, in honor of the Christian holiday, the network chose to do a live musical special about Jesus Christ's last days on Earth. With John Legend cast as the titular role and Sara Bareilles tapped to play Mary Magdalene, we knew NUMEROUS people would tune in to watch this spectacular unfold.

Although the TV event was highly anticipated, here's what Twitter had to say about the musical special (below)…

Andrew Lloyd Webber Claims HE Was The One Who Discovered Rihanna First, Not Jay Z — But He Blew It!

no title

Don't cry for him, Barbados.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jay Z may not have a lot in common apart from being at the top of their respective fields, but you may be surprised to learn they actually have the same taste in music!

No, Lord ALW probably wouldn't be caught dead rapping Dirt Off Your Shoulder anytime soon — nor would we expect to see Jay in a local production of Cats… but at least they can both agree on one thing: Rihanna!!!

The Right Honourable Lord Lloyd-Webber stopped by Good Morning Britain on Tuesday to show off his piano skills for hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

However, the composer really caught our attention when he claimed he actually discovered RiRi way back before Jay Z ever did when she was still singing Karaoke in Barbados!

Apparently, Andrew was on vacation with producer Nigel Wright at the Sandy Lane Hotel 12 years ago when he first spotted the Pon de Replay singer, admitting:

Cats FINALLY Cuts That One Really Racist Song After 35 Years!

Filed under: Broadway BabiesLeona LewisCatGIFsSocial Issues

This is just the cat's pajamas!

It only took them 35 years… but the musical Cats is officially suitable for everyone now that it no longer features racist lyrics.

Fans of the Broadway classic are probably aware that the song Growltiger's Last Stand regularly causes controversy due to characters Asparagus and Jellylorum singing with stereotypical Asian accents.

Most productions of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical already do away with the disgusting line "With a frightful burst of fireworks the Ch*nks they swarmed aboard," but the 2016 New York revival has reportedly gotten rid of the song entirely!

We bet that'll make Leona Lewis happy!!

Still, we're a little bothered it really took them 35 years to fix it…

Will U be catching Cats now that it's finally opened??

alw talks katdashian lawsuit

Famed Broadway composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has NO time for Katdashians! Break The Musical!

As you may recall, the team over at Theater80 decided to pay tribute to the KUWTK family AND the famed musical Cats by combining the two topics together for an off-Broadway parody production. LOLz!

Video: Watch Barbra & Jamie Belt A Tune!

However, as we previously reported, ALW was not in on the joke as he threatened the production company with a lawsuit if they didn't cut six of his original songs from the unauthorized musical. Well this action certainly made Mr. Lloyd Webber look like the bad cop as he's since received some backlash for it.

So it's no surprise that Andrew's since clarified his stance on the drama. In a convo with The Post, the Broadway hitmaker explained that he

Katdashians co-creator Tobly McSmith says the production was "shocked" to learn Andrew was offended by the unauthorized musical parodying six of his original songs:
