The past two years NBC did Live! versions of musicals around the holiday season. Last year, Peter Pan with Allison Williams, and the year before that, Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood.
Both (in my opinion) where super fun. But this could also be because I'm a musical nerd and honestly completely obsessed with both Sound of Music and Peter Pan. It was a great moment for more musical exposure and it revived the live-performance feel. I loved it.

But this year I'm even more excited...

Because this star-studded cast is pretty much BLOWING MY MIND.

NBC released a Preview of the performance and I couldn't me more excited to see the names in this: Shanice Williams as Dorothy, Elijah Kelley as the Scarecrow, David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion, and Ne-Yo as the Tin-Man?

How cool is that?!

In addition... the promotion included Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige.
This all-black cast is going to kill it, and I can't wait to see them perform on live television.

Any other Wiz fans out there?
