Last night was the highly anticipated airing of NBC’s The Wiz: Live, a live musical version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz featuring an all-black cast. The broadcast was a critical success and many people took to social media to share their opinions of the show both during and after it aired. But Anna Kendrick’s live reactions may have been just as entertaining as the show itself!

The actress “live tweeted” during The Wiz: Live’s airing, and everything she wrote was worth reading, because it was outright hilarious. This became apparent as early as her first tweet of the night: “’YES YOU STUPID B****! SSSSSING!’ – me, 7 times so far. [sic]” Her unique observations continued throughout the three hours that the special aired.

Other notable comments included, “That kicked ass. I don’t even know how to be snarky about this,” “Okay that was the most inspirational s*** I’ve ever seen on TV and I watch Miss USA,” and “The revelation that the all-powerful Wiz is secretly an unkempt loser is a legit metaphor for my life.”


Kendrick even commented on a commercial for Barbie dolls that aired during the broadcast, noting, “When *I* played Barbie, I stripped her naked and melted her with matches.”

The 13 posts were all liked between 2,000 and 5,000 times and retweeted between 300 and 1,000 times; clearly lots of people were following Anna Kendrick’s Twitter feed more closely than they were the musical! “I love when you live tweet,” commented one follower, while others wondered if over the course of the evening the star had been drinking. Several fans even suggested she appear in a musical special herself; after all, we already know she can sing after the Pitch Perfect films.

The Wiz: Live actually isn’t the first time Anna Kendrick has live tweeted during an NBC musical special; she also did it for Peter Pan Live almost exactly one year ago. If NBC continues the tradition in 2016, it’s a safe bet that Kendrick will be watching to share her own hilarious funny take on it!
