NBC's Live "Jesus Christ Superstar"

I see NBC won a bunch of Emmys for their live broadcast of Jesus Christ Superstar with John Legend, Brandon Victor Dixon, and Sara Bareilles, directed by David Leveaux. Deservedly so, I would say; I loved it, and it is now my favorite version. You can watch it all on Youtube.

Legend is great, doing Jesus as a sort of hippy pop star, but Dixon is simply amazing as Judas. Opening song here.
