Lambert is no stranger to the Broadway show, having been in the ensemble, as well as understudy the role of Fiyero, in the national tour and Los Angeles productions before he made his break on American Idol.

Ledisi is a singer and actor as well. The Grammy nominee is known for her role in the biopic Selma where she portrayed gospel singer Mahalia Jackson.

The special celebrates the 15th anniversary of Wicked on Broadway and will showcase the music from the show that tells the story of the Wicked Witch of Oz before Dorothy came along.

They join Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel, who were the original Elphaba and Glinda. They will not only perform but serve as hosts for the event.
