JJJ is getting all nostalgic right now ahead of the premiere of Hairspray Live!

Who all remembers when we all swooned and capped and replayed and just became obsessed with Zac Efron‘s performance of “Ladie’s Choice” for the 2007 movie? We definitely do!

LISTEN: Hairspray Live! Full Soundtrack!

For Hairspray Live!, the song will be performed by Derek Hough (who plays Corny Collins) instead of Garrett Clayton, the new Link.

Why? We don’t actually know…

Garrett only had this to say when a fan asked: “because it wasn’t up to me lol”

Watch Zac‘s performance below!

Derek Hough Learned The History of The Twist From Hairspray Live!

Derek Hough Learned The History of The Twist From Hairspray Live!

Derek Hough really dove into the Corny Collins character for Hairspray Live!

Corny Collins was based on a real person – Buddy Deane, and his show was actually cancelled because he was all for integration in the 1960s!

“That integration really changed not just culture and humanity, but dance,” he shared with NKD mag. “Me being a dancer and learning the history of it, and seeing where all these moves and trends came from, it’s pretty cool…It’s about that time and what it meant. To do The Twist was considered vulgar.”

Can’t wait to watch Derek tonight!

If you missed it, Derek also teamed up with Tia Girl’s Club for a holiday Treasure Box.

The boxes are filled with inspirational messaging and cool activities to encourage kids to follow their dreams.

DWTS' Derek Hough Is Officially Leaving The Show in 2017!

DWTS' Derek Hough Is Officially Leaving The Show in 2017!

We knew this was coming sooner rather than later — Derek Hough is bidding goodbye to the Dancing With The Stars ballroom.

In his cover story with NKD mag, the dancer/actor confirms that he’s leaving the show in 2017, and moving on with NBC’s new dance competition, World of Dance, as a judge.

“It’s going to be a great year. It’s going to be a transitional year for me. A new chapter,” he shares.

Derek adds, “The show is my family. It’s really important to me, and its been a part of my life for so long…My reason for not returning is when I look at that room, I kind of feel like I’ve done what I can in that room and in that space. I’ve accomplished so much in that space. I feel like I need to move onto a different space.”

Derek also has the Singin’ In The Rain on Broadway in 2017.

TELL JJJ: Are you sad Derek is leaving the DWTS show again?

VIDEO: Derek Hough Keeps Messing Up This One Line From 'Hairspray Live!'

Derek Hough says he’s totally ready for Hairspray Live! except for one line of dialogue that is giving him trouble.

“It’s like filming a full length feature film live before your eyes,” the pro dancer told Ellen DeGeneres on her show this week. “I got it down, but there are a few lines…I kind of flub my lines over.”

Meanwhile, Derek just served as Best Man at pal Mark Ballas‘ wedding, which is making him also think about the future.

“I see myself married with kids in the next five years,” he said.

As for Dancing With the Stars, Derek said, “I won’t be back next season. I’m going to be part of a new show called World Of Dance with Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo.”

In case you didn’t already know, Hairspray Live! takes place in 1962 Baltimore and is based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

Here’s the synopsis: Plump teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on “The Corny Collins Show,” a local TV program. When against all odds Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight and meets a colorful array of characters, including the resident dreamboat, Link; the ambitious mean girl, Amber; an African-American boy she meets in detention, Seaweed; and his mother, Motormouth Maybelle, the owner of a local record store.

Tracy’s mother is the indomitable Edna, and she eventually encourages Tracy on her campaign to integrate the all-white “Corny Collins Show.”

Mark your calendars – Hairspray Live! will air on Wednesday, December 7 @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.
