Hairspray Live! airs on NBC next Wednesday December 8. The productions will air live from Los Angeles and stars Harvey Fierstein, Ariana Grande, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, Derek Hough, and newcomer Maddie Baillio.

The production also stars American Idol season 3 singer Jennifer Hudson as Motormouth Maybelle is set to have at least one show stopping performance if this 30 second promo is any indication. Listen to a snip of JHud singing “I Know Where I’ve Been.”

I predict we’ll all be collectively throwing our shoes at the TV next Wednesday. Jennifer is also set to sing a duet with Ariana Grande who plays Penny Pingleton.
