I would think instead of people having assigned roles they will just be singing a particular song, right?

Mario Cantone - "Wonderful" (the song title - you can judge whether the performance is wonderful)

I'm assuming the captions on the photos on the PBS site are correct, in which case (spoiler?)

Rita Moreno is singing "The Wizard and I". Other captions have Amber Riley singing "Defying Gravity," Gabi Ruiz is "I'm Not that Girl (Reprise)," Ariana DeBose is also "The WIzard and I," (?), Isaac Powell is "Dancing Through Life," Jennifer Nettles is "No Good Deed."

^Morribile sings at the top of "The Wizard and I" (so if Moreno is doing Morrible, that would make sense)

Has anyone made a joke Twitter that’s “Idina’s Bangs.” She really wants those to stay for some reason

I actually like her bangs,for some reason. I've seen pics of Katrina Lenk with bangs too,when she was in Once.

I like the concert,but the pledge drives are always annoying. They've got some good singers on this show. I like Ariana DeBose (sp?)

Despite any qualms one may have with Schwartz’s score, Luke Frazier’s new orchestrations sound fantastic (as does the star-studded lineup of singers). New, but not too different from the thrilling Brohn instrumentation.


Oh look, a bibu!

I’m enjoying it! Did anyone else catch Ariana DeBose say if she’s lucky she’ll get to sing Wizard and I again? I wonder what she could’ve been referring to? The movie, perhaps?

Methinks this was Ariana’s audition for the film…

Yes, I caught that and I was wondering if she was referring to the movie or doing it on Broadway.

Wasn't crazy about "Popular" and I love Alex Newell.

I’d rather just watch those “cool mashup” videos (as Schwartz said) instead of most of this.

Also Justin Guarini’s American Idol hair is something he needs to give back.

Cynthia Erivo sounds so fantastic that I can forgive one of Schwartz's worst lyrics in the show for once ("There are bridges you cross you didn't know you crossed / Until you've crossed"Wicked in concert.

Riley's Defying Gravity is interesting...

It was. The arrangement was interesting but she hit those notes with ease.
