Watch The Wiz Live! Stars Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah Sing, Dance, and Be Very, Very Fabulous

After unveiling a few promo stills last week, NBC has started to ease The Wiz Live! on down to its release date, which means that we’ve gotten a few more glimpses of the big event. In a newly released promo, Mary J. Blige sings and also shouts “I hate water!” which is all we ever wanted from Mary J. Blige. And, if you were distracted by all that hydrophobia, take a moment to gaze in admiration at her very glam Wicked Witch of the West outfit.

If that wasn’t enough, here’s Queen Latifah crooning a few bars as the titular Wiz.

Common, Amber Riley, Ne-Yo, Elijah Kelley, Amber Riley, Stephanie Mills, David Alan Grier, Uzo Aduba, and Shanice Williams also star in the show. Will The Wiz be good? Who knows! Will it set Twitter aflame? Definitely.
