Jesus Christ Superstar is a decades-old musical (specifically, a rock opera).
The latest iteration of the trend of networks big, star-studded live performances of famous musicals was NBC putting on this show, which depicts the final weeks of Jesus' life, as an Easter special.
While Jesus Christ Superstar is sometimes controversial, particularly for its depiction of Judas as a tragic and even sympathetic character, the musical enjoys a great deal of popularity among both Christian and non-Christian audiences.
For this show, the titular role of Jesus fell to the phenomenal John Legend.
His wife, Chrissy Teigen, has been tweeting about this for weeks. Naturally, she livetweeted the entire show.
As always, her tweets are absolutely golden.
Chrissy Teigen was hyped, folks
She is also very straightforward about how little she knows about the story of Jesus.
Most of the show is music, with very little spoken dialogue
So there are a lot of songs for her to find exciting.
Chrissy can be a little mean sometimes
No one deserves to be compared to Milo.
Oh no, someone found him
No offense but ... she's right.
Ah, a birkenstocks joke
Though the show is traditionally full of anachronisms (part of the fun of musical theater), they are all wearing sandals.
Chrissy wasn't super familiar with the plot
But that's okay -- watching any show for the first time can be an eye-opening experience.
