Uzo Aduba’s Performance As Glinda in The Wiz Live! Can Be Your Own Personal Encore

On The Wiz Live! Suzanne finally became her own dandelion. During a pivotal moment on Orange Is the New Black, Uzo Aduba’s character Suzanne Warren goes silent at her high-school graduation. She’s supposed to sing, but she can’t. Well, Aduba is finally getting to show off her pipes on TV now. At the very end of NBC’s live production The Wiz Live!, Aduba descends all aglitter as Glinda, the Good Witch of the South. Her rendition of “If You Believe” is warm and resplendent, and gives our heroine, played by the young phenom Shanice Williams, the confidence to take us all the way home.
