The first five minutes of the new “Rocky Horror” were released and Twitter is going insane

We’ve talked about it before — we’re kinda MEGA Rocky Horror fans, and we’ve been counting down the days until Fox’s live remake this October. Sure, at first we were dubious (how could anything top the original/why even try, we thought), but then initial pics leaked of Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter and we caught a glimpse of Victoria Justice singing “Touch Me,” and we could resist no longer,

And now we’re even more excited because Fox streamed the first five minutes of a live performance via Periscope last night, and Twitter is going INSANE with positive reactions (and let’s be real, the Twittersphere knows all).

This is what people are saying about the first five minutes (which sadly, we didn’t see for ourselves. SOB).

So basically, fans of the original who saw the first five minutes of the upcoming remake are SOLD, which is allowing us to breathe a huge sigh of relief.

And then of course there’s just a LOT of excitement in general.

The people have spoken — this is clearly going to be AWESOME. Now excuse us while we go practice our Time Warp.
