NBC releases 'Hairspray Live!' teaser: See Harvey Fierstein, Ariana Grande and more

You can't stop the beat, and you can't stop the juggernaut that is "Hairspray Live!"

The classic 1988 John Waters-directed movie-turned-Broadway-musical (turned musical movie again in 2002) is coming to NBC in December, and Friday night they released a first look.

We get to see some of the leads (including Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Kristin Chenoweth and newcomer Maddie Baillio) done up in their full hair-hopper coifs, with outrageous outfits (just check out Martin Short's flowery jacket!) and eye-popping visuals.

Plus, you get a kiss from Ariana Grande at the end!

What more could you ask for? Check it out and set your calendars: "Hairspray Live!" is dancing your way on Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. on NBC!
