SLAY! The superstar cast of ‘Hairspray Live!’ captivated the crowd at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 24, showing off their best dance moves and sky-high ‘dos! Get all the details on their highly-anticipated performance here!
The stars of Hairspray Live! made a dazzling appearance at the 90th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 24, commanding the show with their sparkling ensembles! Fans were treated to the sight of their lives, since Ariana Grande, Dove Cameron, Garrett Clayton, Jennifer Hudson, Ephraim Sykes, Derek Hough, Kristin Chenoweth, Maddie Baillio, Martin Short and Shahadi Wright Joseph pulled out all the stops for the festive celebration, sending the crowd into a frenzy! All of the superstars brought their mega-watt smiles and playful personas, making it feel as though we were on the set with them!
For those who weren’t in the parade, a brand new Snapchat filter was released on behalf of the hit musical, giving users the opportunity to rock the fabulous hairdo of character Tracy Turnblad! NBC aired a commercial that included a Snapcode to get a “Hairspray” lens, so keep a look out! The stars have been going the extra mile to prepare for the momentous occasion, practicing relentlessly to ensure their performance was executed to perfection. It paid off!
We totally love how the cast has formed such a close bond. On Nov. 9, they gave fans a behind-the-scenes peek at their rehearsals, where they did the Mannequin Challenge! In the nearly 2-minute video, the musical’s standout single “You Can’t Stop the Beat” plays in the background as the camera pans around set. Hairspray Live! premieres Dec. 7, so Thanksgiving was the perfect time for a taste! Also on the lineup of Broadway’s best taking part in the parade, is Cats, Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical, Paramour, and Waitress.
