WHAAAAAT? This is exciting!
After a couple of questionable attempts to bring live musicals back to television (The Sound Of Music in 2013, Peter Pan in 2014) NBC might have finally struck on a winning formula. And that formula involves Ne-Yo, Mary J. Blige, Common & Queen Latifah, along with other huge stars!
And while YES, I’m very excited about this… I have to wonder – where’s Wiz Khalifa? How you gonna put on a live version of The Wiz and not include the biggest artist of the moment ACTUALLY NAMED WIZ? You can’t tell me he wouldn’t have made an excellent Scarecrow.
If you want to get ready with the soundtrack from the 1978 film featuring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross – check it out on Slacker!
