The Wiz Live!: 'Where's Toto?' and Twitter's Wildest Reactions

Originally posted 12/03/2015 11:00PM

The Wiz Live! took fans back to Oz and took over Twitter Thursday night.

NBC's live musical featured newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy, and despite rave reviews for performance, there was one key component missing from most of the production: Toto! The canine favorite, played by a pair of adorable rescue dogs, appeared in the opening segment (as well as the end), but did not follow Dorothy to Oz – causing plenty of Twitter users to express their concern for the pooch. It's worth noting that in the original Broadway version of The Wiz, Toto did not make the journey to Oz either.

The Wiz's New Scarecrow Elijah Kelley: 'I Don't Want to Outdo Michael Jackson'

Originally posted 10/27/2015 05:45PM

He has rather large shoes to fill as he eases on down the road, but The Wiz Live!'s new Scarecrow considers the role a real thriller.

"I'm not intimidated. I'm not scared," said Elijah Kelley of taking on the role made famous by Michael Jackson in the Broadway musical's 1978 film adaptation.

"I don't want to outdo Mike. I don't want to overdo," he added at a Radio Andy-hosted SiriusXM Town Hall for the upcoming NBC live event.

But Kelley is happy to follow the path paved by the King of Pop in some ways, saying he feels blessed to sing "You Can't Win," which Jackson sang in the movie even though it did not appear in the original stage production.

Said Kelley, "There's big footprints to fill, but I know that God's blessed me with the ability to honor."

No tricks, lots of treats!

Tim McGraw and The Mavericks debuted songs from their upcoming 2013 albums at a private Halloween show in Nashville on Wednesday.

During McGraw's preview of songs from Two Lanes of Freedom, he was joined by R&B crooner Ne-Yo.

"Tim and Ne-Yo aren't a new collaboration. Ne-Yo recorded 'Only Human' with the country singer for his Emotional Traffic album," a source tells PEOPLE.

The singers performed "Only Human" and "She Is" before McGraw closed the set with his new single "One of Those Nights."

"One of Those Nights" will make its television debut during Thursday's Country Music Awards on ABC.
