John Legend was well on his way to EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) status when he stared in NBC's Easter musical as the titular character, Jesus Christ.

Revampted my earlier comments because of what I saw or did not see. - If the older versions ended the same way as this version then I'm just so grateful that I've been given a much better vision and understanding. Wow, indeed! Great performance by all. Very much enjoyed the singing of John Legend and of course seeing Alice Cooper perform after all these years was indeed a treat.

Based off the 1970s rock opera of the same name, this show chronicles the final moments of Jesus Christ.

Music was excellent, as was in the original movie years back, 1999. Costumes were outrageous. Was good to see Alice Cooper and was that Bono?

WOW! The sheer spectacle and theatricality of this version, shown live on television last Easter, blew me away. Very imaginative staging and costuming/lighting also. Leads were terrific with special shout out to the singer/actor portraying Judas. Worth seeing even as a recording (as opposed to live). Kudos to all involved.
