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.
