Welcome to the ‘60s! Kristin Chenoweth took to Instagram on Wednesday to share the first photo of the “Nicest Kids in Town,” the cast of Hairspray Live!, and we couldn’t be more excited for this live-action musical to hit the airwaves—er, TV screens.

In the very first look, the star-studded cast looks ready to "twist and shout" while posing in front of sheet music for the show’s hit song, “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” Newcomer Maddie Baillio will play the lead role of Tracy Turnblad alongside one talented lineup.

With Ariana Grande as Penny Pingleton, Jennifer Hudson as Motormouth Maybelle, Martin Short as Wilburn Turnblad, Kristin Chenoweth as Velma von Tussle, Dove Cameron as Amber von Tussle, and Derek Hough as Corny Collins, this multi-talented cast is sure to sing, dance, and charm their way into our hearts.
