That’s why Fox brought us The Passion Sunday night — a contemporary retelling of the Passion of Jesus Christ story, just with more popular music.
The two-hour live show was narrated by Tyler Perry and starred Jencarlos Canela as Jesus, Trisha Yearwood as Mary, Chris Daughtry as Judas, Prince Royce as Peter, and Seal in his acting debut as Pontius Pilate.
With the show being both musical and faith based, several people took to Twitter to share their reactions to the best of the best moments (below):

Of course Daughtry got a lot of love too:
But our favorite reactions were fans who used GIFs or images to share their excitement:
What did you think of last night’s musical event?
