What happens when you take two powerhouse vocals and put them together for a live duet? You get absolute magic.
Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson were the talk of the Wednesday night’s premiere of Hairspray Live!, all thanks to a wildly epic performance by the stars, aka Motormouth Maybelle and Penny Pingleton.
The show came to a close with Grande and Hudson’s rendition of “Come So Far (Got So Far To Go)” and it was flawless. “It’s exciting, it’s fun,” J Hud told E! News. “I’m a fan of [Ariana], so it’s like, we get to sing together — when I found that out I was like, ‘Oh, yes, let’s get into it.’ It’s another cool thing I get to add to my list, that’s for sure.”

Grande told the news outlet, “The hook says, ‘We’ve come so far, but we’ve got so far to go,’ which is exactly where we’re at right now. It’s exactly why we’re supposed to be doing this show right now, cosmically. The world needs to hear it in a fun musical way, it’s a message that we need to get out there.”
Hundreds of viewers raved about the TV musical version of the Broadway classic via social media, celebrities included.
Andy Cohen posted: PURE JOY! Thank you #HairsprayLive! We needed that.”
Jennifer Lopez even tuned in and wrote on Twitter: “Loving #hairspraylive.”
The ’60s themed show also starred Harvey Fierstein, Maddie Bailie, Marin Short, Derek Hough and Kristen Chenoweth.
Tiffany Haddish’s Hilarious Speech At Model Chanel Iman’s Wedding
Tiffany Haddish is one helluva lively and colorful human; so it’s not exactly shocking that she turned what would be considered a traditional wedding speech into a whelp … Haddish speech.
Just one night before hilariously taking the stage at the Oscars alongside Maya Rudolph, the Girls Trip star delivered an epic speech at the wedding of model, Chanel Iman, and New York Giant star, Sterling Shepard.
Although giving a seemingly witty speech, she also made an appoint to talk about how special her relationship was with Chanel, whom she met on the set of Mad Families. “I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one cause I can see his soul,” Tiffany said, according to Brides.com.
The actress continued, “I looked into his eyeballs when you brought him to the comedy club. That’s a good man….[To Sterling] You better worship the ground she walk on cause she’s got a gangster ass bitch that got her back. Sorry, pastor!”
Haddish then went on to give some important advice. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”
According to Chanel, the two grew close on set, mainly because they wound up sharing a trailer together. “During filming, I didn’t have a trailer so she was kind enough to share hers with me,” Chanel told Brides.com. “So for a month, we were sharing a trailer and going over lines together. We laughed, we cried, we bonded. She’s like a big sister to me.”
Chanel and Sterling exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
