NBC’s Dec. 6 television event, Hairspray Live! ended with two big numbers. First, after Tracy Turnblad and her friends successfully take over the Corny Collins Show, they sing and dance to the upbeat anthem, “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” Once again, Jennifer Hudson as Motormouth Maybelle totally steals the show.
The Hairspray Live! curtain call is a duet between Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande singing a new song, “Come So Far (Got So Far to Go).” The entire cast takes a bow at this point, including Maddie Baillio (Tracy), Derek Hough (Corny Collins) and Kristin Chenoweth (Velma Von Tussle).
Watch both performances here.
