The Wiz LIVE! - DVD Giveaway!



Like many black families, Thursday December 3rd was a day we had been looking forward to for weeks. The Wiz was going to be performed live on prime time television and we couldn't have been more excited. Back when NBC announced The Wiz as their next live production my social media channels have been buzzing with excitement. The internet cast and re-cast the production based on their memories of the movie classic with Diana Ross and Michael Jackson.



I made sure the kids were bathed and dinner was done well before 8pm so we were all settled in on the couch and ready to watch. No one spoke until after the commercial break except BabyNinja when he said, "Oh Mommy Dorofy, yooks yike you. Her hair's curly too!" That just made my heart melt. That's honestly never happened before. My kids have never compared an actress on TV to me. Not once. Needless to say I was on a total high for the rest of the show.  It was based on the stage production of The Wiz and not the movie so certain scenes were decidedly different but spectacularly done none-the-less. The costumes and makeup alone had me swooning and wanting to pause the screen repeatedly. I've already decided we will be taking our cues from this performance for our Halloween costumes next year. I mean how could we not? Did you see Amber Riley as the Good Witch of the North?





I MEAN. Dang girl. And Uzo as Glenda? It was just all too good. We DVR'd it because we knew it would be on too long for the kids to stay up and watch it all and there was no way I was letting them miss out on this monumentus occasion. Then the next day I wondered aloud when/if there would be a DVD version because I NEED it and then a few days later I received an email asking if I'd like to host a giveaway for the DVD COPY OF THE WIZ LIVE!!!!

  1. Ne-Yo was the star of this musical by far! My favorites were "What I would do" which led into "We Got It".

  2. I dvr-ed for the same reason (wanted the boys to watch but it would be too late for them). Mary J Blige was outstanding- I didn't even recognize her and had to google it. When I saw she was playing Evillene I was blown away!

  4. I have been meaning to see if this is on Hulu. I loved the original Wiz so I am dying for the girls to see the new one. Ease on Down the Road was my favorite from the original.
