John Legend's Singing in 'Jesus Christ Superstar Live' Amazes Viewers

Watch John Legend's powerful performance in Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar came from the same producers, Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, who are behind NBC's holiday season live musical productions.

More than a year after its last staging of a live musical, in the now semi-traditional slot between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, NBC offered up an Easter event for 2018 in Jesus Christ Superstar. (Dec. 2016) and Peter Pan Live!, which both averaged a 5.9 household rating in the metered markets, and was below the early delivery of the two highest-rated, The Sound Of Music and The Wiz. He was joined by Alice Cooper as King Herod, Brandon Victor Dixon as Judas, Ben Daniels as Pontius Pilate and Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene, among others.

"Yes the shop specializes in coverups that aren't 32 million dollars", she tweeted in response.

Alice Cooper stole the scene late with his powerful performance as King Herod for this latest iteration of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's classic 1971 rock opera, which tells the story of Christ's last week alive, including his brutal crucifixion and death.

We all know Chrissy Teigen's commentary is the stuff of legend - especially when it's about husband John Legend. When Legend first appeared during the show's opening number, Chrissy wrote, "HE HAS RISEN aaaaahahahahhahahahahahahahahh". "She makes singing seem so easy".
