Listen to “Touch Me” from the “Rocky Horror” remake and prepare to shiver with antici…pation
We never really knew that we needed a Rocky Horror Picture Show remake until it was announced that one was happening. Now, we can’t wait to get our “Time Warp” on, pull out the fishnets, and find a suitable wig for when the TV movie airs on FOX this October (the 21st to be precise).
Earlier this week (September 14th), Victoria Justice (who is playing the iconic role of Janet) tweeted out a teaser that for “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me” and we were freaking out.
This is one of our FAVORITE moments from the original musical and film, and it looks like Justice and Staz Nair, who plays Rocky, are bringing the camp and fun with their rendition.
However, now the whole song has premiered and we’re officially in full blown Rocky Horror mode.
Originally played by Susan Sarandon, the character of Janet Weiss goes through a mammoth journey during the film, as she becomes embroiled in Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s antics.
After listening to Justice’s version of “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me,” it seems that Justice is going to be bringing her own lustful innocence to the role of Janet and we can’t wait!
"When I found out I booked the role of Janet Weiss, one of the first things I was extremely excited about, was to sing the iconic ‘Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me’, Justice said to Idolator about getting the role. "This musical, this role and this song have always been on my wish list. To say that I’m so thrilled to sing it would be an understatement."
Joining Victoria Justice in the Rocky Horror remake is Laverne Cox, who plays the legendary role of Dr Frank-N-Furter, Adam Lambert, Christina Milian, Ryan McCartan, and Tim Curry, who returns to play the role of The Criminologist.
The full TV movie airs October 21st on FOX.
