Now the new commercial shows us the star-studded cast in their ’60s Baltimore getups like Kristin Chenowith as Miss Baltimore Crabs Velma Von Tussle, Jennifer Hudson as Motormouth Maybelle and King Cobra’s Garrett Clayton as Link Larkin.

Almost 30 years since the original Hairspray film proves that you really can’t stop the beat! Check out the first look below:

Hairspray Live! will air December 7 on NBC.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
