Tonight, NBC slayed the live musical game with The Wiz Live. Seriously; they've been hit-and-miss in the past, but with the likes of Queen LatifahStephanie Mills, and newcomer Shanice Williams out there singing their heart out, this production truly brought life to the 1978 reimagining of The Wizard of Oz.

It also brought Twitter life. As you know, you aren't watching event TV if you aren't clocking–or creating–those fire tweets during the performance. The Wiz Live gave people the ammunition, and Twitter rose to the occasion.

Here's a look at the heat that Twitter cooked up during tonight's show.
