Viewers got the first taste of NBC’s Hairspray Live! today when the cast performed a number during the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Below, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth and others perform the show-stopper “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”
Not only does the number put Fierstein in drag before millions of Americans watching the pre-recorded number at home, there’s a blink-and-you-miss-it homage to Divine in one of the Baltimore store signs.
Right-wingers went nuts when the dragged-out cast of Kinky Boots performed in the parade back in 2013.
We can only imagine what they’re thinking now.
Hairspray Live! airs December 7 at 8/7c on NBC.
