Monday Video Break: This Hairspray Live! Sneak Peek Is Epic
The anticipation surrounding NBC’s Hairspray Live! has been CRAZY ever since the project was announced last January. We’ve gushed over the cast list (Derek Hough! Ephraim Sykes! Kristin Chenoweth! Jennifer Hudson! Ariana Grande!), caught up with Hough to get the scoop on what rehearsals have been like (see our December issue), and watched every single cast interview that exists. But we haven’t really been able to glimpse any of the dancing…until now!
NBC has gifted us with an extended preview—and, you guys, it’s pretty much everything. It highlights all the dance-y goodness of the show and somehow gets us even more excited for the official air date. (Which is Wednesday night! Only two more sleeps!)
Not that we’re all that shocked that the dancing looks fantastic: The show’s original Broadway choreographer, Jerry Mitchell, also worked on the live version. “I’m thrilled to have the chance to do the show again,” Mitchell told DS. “I planned to use the talents each star brought to the table to make the show shine, so expect some new riffs on some of my original moves.”
Watch the sneak peek below, and make sure not to miss the show this Wednesday, December 7 at 8/7c on NBC.
