So NBC’s The Wiz Live was as majestic and awesome as you thought it would be, at least according to the Internet.

With an all-star cast including Uzo Aduba, David Alan Grier, Queen Latifah, Amber Riley and Mary J. Blige (to name a few) it’s no wonder the three-hour special killed it with audiences (11.5 million people watched!), besting last year’s NBC live show Peter Pan in viewers.

In case you didn’t get to see Thursday night’s show, we gathered the best of the Internet’s reactions. What can we glean from these responses? If you haven’t had the chance to watch yet, get moving.

Basically, Uzo Aduba was a perfect Glinda the Good Witch.

Many viewers, including singer Syesha Mercado, called out former Glee star Amber Riley for rocking it basically the entire time.

American Horror Story: Coven star Gabourey Sidibe was suspicious about a certain scarecrow.

And everyone else just thought it was perfect.

Finally, Broadway actress (and Sound of Music Live! star) Audra McDonald pretty much summed up every viewer’s thoughts on the performance.
