A Sneak Peek At The Fabulous Costumes Of 'The Wiz Live!'

Wow.

"The Wiz Live!" airs in two weeks but we have phenomenal costumes to admire in the meantime. 

NBC will air the "The Wiz Live!" on Dec. 3, as part of their one-night-only live musical events. 

The upcoming musical is a revival of the original 1975 Broadway production of the "The Wiz" that became a film in 1978 that featured Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Lena Horne and Richard Pryor, among other stars.  

"The Wiz Live!" will tap memories from the original musical with songs like, "Ease on Down the Road," and with cast member Stephanie Mills -- the original Dorothy on Broadway, now playing Auntie Em. 

The cast including, Common as Bouncer, Queen Latifah as The Wiz, Mary J. Blige as Evilene (Wicked Witch of the West), Ne-Yo as Tin Man, Uzo Aduba as Glinda and David Alan Grier as Cowardly Lion -- are already decked out in costume and we're loving it! 

Check out the costumes, designed by Tony-nominated costume designer, Paul Tazewell, below:
