I’m not mad at these choices!!!

Since it was announced back in March that NBC would be airing the live version of the popular musical The Wiz, many wondered who would be tapped to play some of the leading roles of Dorothy and the other characters.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Queen Latifah has been tapped to play The Wiz and Mary J. Blige has been selected to play the Wicked Witch of the West.

NIIIICE! But what about Dorothy??? Wouldn’t it be fantastic if Tracee Ellis Ross would reprise her mother’s role? I mean, she can learn to carry a tune….right?

The Wiz which will air Dec. 3rd on NBC.
