Brilliant, star-studded performance is great family fare.We Got This CoveredDecember 05, 2015
While it may not be enough to renew every musical-lover's faith in live-to-TV performances, The Wiz Live! certainly proves that musicals have a place on television right now - and not just in late-night monologue jokes.Yahoo! TVDecember 04, 2015
A noble effort with flashes of amusement and an abundance of talent, the new version of The Wiz on Thursday night couldn't overcome a few key flaws and the fact that this simply isn't a classic piece of material.GuardianDecember 04, 2015
Everyone agrees, Shanice Williams will ease on down the road to super-stardom after this performance. Her voice was incredible and her performance top-notch.Boston HeraldDecember 04, 2015
NBC's annual musical finally lived up to the hype, the hope and the promise of great live TV. "The Wiz Live!" last night was expertly cast and lavishly produced and introduced the world to a new superstar.VoxDecember 04, 2015
It was exuberant, and even a little cocky. It was different from anything else NBC has aired all year, but hopefully its success will inspire more programs like it in the future.
