Twitter absolutely loved 'Jesus Christ Superstar Live'
NBC ended Easter Sunday with Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, with John Legend in the role of Jesus Christ — and he was definitely a superstar!
Twitter lit up with people loving the show, especially John Legend‘s performance, with one person tweeting, “John Legend takin’ us all to church.” John wasn’t the only one taking people to church. Hamilton alum Brandon Victor Dixon absolutely killed it as Judas.

In fact, everyone in the show put in an Emmy-worthy performance, including Sara Bareilles, who played Mary Magdalene, and Alice Cooper, who made a brief appearance as Herod.
Hands down, the best NBC Live Musical. Stunning. Moving. The real deal. #JesusChristSuperstarLive

The final image of Legend as Jesus on the cross, fading away through a cross-shaped opening, had the theater audience sitting in stunned silence — and everyone at home begging for more, with one person tweeting, “So I want to see this every Easter. Anybody else?“
