Jennifer Lopez Teases NBC’s ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Live Special: Watch
Jennifer Lopez isn’t wasting any time. During the premiere of Hairspray Live last night (December 7), she revealed the first teaser for NBC’s next live musical Bye Bye Birdie.
The clip, set to the title track, doesn’t reveal much aside from what we know already: This rendition, starring J.Lo herself, arrives next December. But the teaser does confirm that yes, despite diminishing returns for TV musical specials overall, Bye Bye Birdie is happening.
“I am SO excited to be part of NBC’s next live musical,” Jennifer said on social media.
Inspired by Elvis Presley‘s life story, Bye Bye Birdie is about Conrad Birdie, who pulls one last publicity stunt — give one lucky girl on Sweet Apple, Ohio one last kiss — before he leaves his rock ‘n’ roll life for the United States Army. J.Lo will play his longtime love Rosie.
