Ariana Grande Joins the Cast of NBC's Hairspray Live!

NBC's next live musical event, Hairspray Live!, has added yet another big name — Ariana Grande — to its ever-growing roster.

In a series of tweets, the "Into You" singer revealed that she will play the role of Penny, Tracy's rhythmically-challenged BFF.

Ariana joins previously-announced fellow cast members Jennifer Hudson, Derek Hough, Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, and newcomer Maddie Baillio.

Do you think she'll do this lovably spastic role justice (or at least top Amanda Bynes' rendition from the 2007 flick)? Sound off in the comments!
