Ariana Grande Perfectly Channels Penny Pingleton In First ‘Hairspray Live!’ Cast Photo

The premiere of Hairspray Live! is less than two months away, and the cast has shared its first-ever group photo via People. The image features Jennifer Hudson as Motormouth Maybelle, Martin Short as Wilbur Turnblad, Kristin Chenoweth as Velma von Tussle and more. But most importantly, we finally see Ariana Grande dolled up as Tracy Turnblad’s best friend Penny Pingleton – pig tails, plaid skirts and all. Welcome to the ’60s, folks!

Hairspray Live! airs Dec. 7 on NBC.
