Watch Hairspray Live’s ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’

By

If you missed today's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, you also missed a preview of NBC's forthcoming Hairspray Live. The latest live musical from the Peacock — which will provide you the very rare opportunity to watch Harvey Fierstein, Andrea Martin, and Billy Eichner occupying the same corner of the TV universe for a moment — will air December 7. Herein, we get to see the show's signature song, "You Can't Stop the Beat," as performed on a Hollywood lot by the core cast. It's a taste of what we'll get during the broadcast, including Ariana Grande as Penny, Jennifer Hudson as Motormouth Maybelle, and perfectly sunny newcomer Maddie Baillio as Tracy Turnblad. Make it past the overly explanatory "Here's the whole plot, America," Matt Lauer intro, and you'll even get a special welcome message from Harvey Fierstein and a delightful furry friend (his Edna Turnblad wig. Spoiler).
