He said, "Word on the street was there's this musical, and it's amazing."

Lambert will be singing "As Long As You're Mine" with Ledisi, who has also worked in theatre in productions of Caroline, or Change and The Color Purple.

Pentatonix member Kristin Maldonado told Playbill, "The second the soundtrack came out I feel like everyone was obsessed with it."

Fellow Pentatonix member Mitch Grassi noted, "It's a full circle moment, we grew up with this show and the [album] kind of shaped us as performers."

Wicked, which was adapted from the book of the same name by Gregory Maguire, tells the story of the misunderstood Wicked Witch of the West from L. Frank Baum's classic books and the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

A Very Wicked Halloween will be showing on NBC on October 29, 2018.
