The cast of The Wiz Live! is ready for action, and fans finally have a preview of what they can expect from the musical.

Earlier this year, Shanice Williams had us all in our feelings when she landed the role of Dorothy for the upcoming televised play, but her cast mates are what have us shocked.

The actress will be joined by David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion, Elijah Kelley as the Scarecrow, but Ne-Yo as the Tin Man certainly has social media blown away right now.

Promotional photos for the special were released by People Magazine, showing the R&B singer in full Tin Man costume, where he is nearly unrecognizable in his gear.

Costume designer, Paul Tazewell, talked about the costume, revealing, “He is a woodsman translated into the world of tin. It’s much more literal to work clothing than it is created out of a patchwork of metal. And it’s topped off with a tree-worker’s metal hat.”
