In the 40-second clip, we get to see a sneak peek of the set, the music, and the all-star cast in costume: Ne-Yo as the Tin Man, David Alan Grier as The Cowardly Lion and Elijah Kelley as The Scarecrow, “Glee” star Amber Riley as Addaperle, the Good Witch of the North, Common as Emerald City’s Bouncer, “Orange is the New Black” star Uzo Aduba as Glinda the Good Witch, Stephanie Mills as Auntie Em, Queen Latifah as The Wizard and newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy. However, Mary J. Blige as the Wicked Witch of the West isn’t shown.
