The Broadway star played Velma Von Tussle in the live TV musical.

When you put a Broadway star into a live-action musical, the results are nothing short of amazing.

So when it came time for Kristin Chenoweth's big number in Hairspray Live! singing "(The Legend Of) Miss Baltimore Crabs" as Velma Von Tussle, all eyes were on her — and she did not disappoint.

Watch Chenoweth's performance below.
