<em>The Wiz Live</em> The Wiz Live

There's less than two weeks to go before NBC will air its live production of The Wiz, and TVGuide.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the production, which stars Queen Latifah, Uzo Aduba, David Alan Grier and newcomer Shanice Williams (a "soon-to-be superstar," according to Latifah) as Dorothy.

"It's an iconic role, and I just have to give it 1000 percent," Williams says in the preview.

The clip gives us a glimpse at the signature number "A Brand New Day" from a dress rehearsal, as well as the intricate costumes ("I could rob a bank and they wouldn't know it was me," Grier says of his Cowardly Lion getup).

Check out the first look here:

The Wiz Live airs live on NBC on Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8/7c.
