Watch Idina in “A Very Wicked Halloween”!

Idina Menzel celebrated the 15th anniversary of Wicked by reuniting with Kristin Chenoweth in a new NBC special “A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway”. If you missed “A Very Wicked Halloween”, you can stream it now on NBC.com!

I actually got the attend the taping, which was a DREAM COME TRUE. It meant so much to me to be there. I became a fan of Idina’s after I saw Wicked in 2010. I absolutely loved the show and bought the cast album, and of course, that led me straight to Idina and her music and the rest is history! I’ve listened to countless hours of her music (and Wicked!), attended dozens of her shows and traveled thousands of miles to see her. It’s cliche, but Wicked absolutely changed my life “For Good”!

Idina hosted the show with Kristin and also performed. First, Idina performed “Defying Gravity” which you can watch above. To wrap things up, Idina and Kristin performed “For Good” with generations of Elphabas and Glindas. That was a very moving performance to watch live and on TV! Watch that here:
