Did you watch The Wiz Live?

Last night was truly a family night as we all sat back with our children to watch The Wiz Live on NBC. It had 11 million views last night which was great.

To see a new version and cast was amazing. The star studded cast with Queen Latifah as the Wiz, Mary J. Blige as evil witch of the west, Uzo Aduba as the good witch of the South was amazing.  Then introducing Shanice Williams as Dorothy was just beautiful. It was nice to see Stephanie Mills , David Alan Grier, Neo, and Common.  It was an amazing cast that did an outstanding job in their performance.  Let me say, Shanice Williams did an outstanding job and I am sure we will see more of this talented young lady.  The music was great and I like the variation of the storyline with a little humor for today's generation. 

The best part about last night was the children today got to see and hear a show many of us 70's babies got to see when the original with Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. It was awesome to see the performance with new faces. For those of who is saw the ordinal, what are your thoughts? 

If you missed it, you can still watch it on demand.
