From executive producers Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, Marc Platt, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron comes NBC’s next live musical spectacular, the groundbreaking rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert”! Set during the final week of Jesus’ life, the story is told from the perspective of infamous betrayer Judas Iscariot. As more and more followers flock to Jesus, Judas grows concerned that Jesus is becoming arrogant and losing sight of his principles. So when Jesus attacks the money changers in a temple, Judas finally turns on his teacher, setting both on a path to tragedy. Originally conceived as a concept album that hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, the show eventually made its way to the stage in 1971 and garnered five Tony nominations in addition to winning a Drama Desk Award for Andrew Lloyd Webber. Now this globally celebrated classic comes to NBC in 2018 for a one-of-a-kind live staging on Easter Sunday that’s sure to amaze with jaw-dropping spectacle, an all-star cast of beloved recording artists and a fresh soundtrack featuring such hits as “Heaven on Their Minds,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Superstar.”

      i cut my teeth on anderson been into jcss for 40 years from broadway to film. they did an amazing job with little prep time. sorry you are wrong. this holds up. i was actually expecting to be disappointed.

    • Chris Finch says:

      Felt like we were on top of the world filled with glory! Praise Jesus Christ Superstar!

    • Aliana Wood says:

      That’s kind of the point. Judas is supposed to be the star of the show.

    • AlwaysGonnaSing says:

      Mmm..that’s actually not a bad idea.

    • King Malcolm says:

      Hey Bhae got it right. The “secret” to understanding this show is to realize that Jesus isn’t the main character – Judas is.

  5. Gabriel Sloan says:

    Yup… this is easily the best rendition I’ve ever heard of “Superstar”

    • dawfurby says:

      Thatperformer387 Nope. Still better in every way.

    • I'm beginning to feal like a rape god says:

      i still like the 1970 version more more but im just kinda biast because the 1970 one has a special place in my heart

    • Jon T says:

      Thatperformer387 really man, that’s the one you choose to try to unseat this one? I mean dixon’s version here is way better then that, like it’s not even close. For me personally, I’d have to take it back to the 1970 original cast recording, and even compared to that this one still rocks. Well done all involved

    • I'm beginning to feal like a rape god says:

      Jon T Right that 1970 original casting was great my mum got a Vinyl record of it from her dad that was signed by all of them

    • Steven Allen says:

      Murray Head, from the original 1970 album, is my favorite. This was recorded before there were any plans for a stage musical, it was supposed to be a studio recording only. The singers were mostly English rock and blues singers, which is fitting for a “rock opera”. I’m not saying he’s the best, just my personal favorite.

  6. Chilipepper Jesus says:

    This guy is bananas good. Amazeballs. Perfect casting

  7. Michael Bradshaw says:

    We’ve come a long way since Peter Pan Live, awsome show

  8. elysia barr says:

    Brandon knocked it outside of the park. He has an a amazing range. Loved the show!

  9. Melissa2087 says:

    Wow. This guy is a powerhouse. Amazing!

  10. Harper Craven says:

    Brandon TOTALLY killed it as Judas!!!

  11. Mark Danna says:

    Brandon is right up there with Carl Anderson and Murray Head

  12. Liv CrueltyFree Now says:

    OUTSTANDING OUTSTANDING OUTSTANDING. And best costume for a male in a musical, ever !!!!!!!?????????

  13. Ryan Wehr says:

    Hope we wins an Emmy for this.

  14. John Martin says:

    Judas’ silver wardrobe looks like it cost about 20 pieces

  15. charlenebeckwith says:

    This song by default is a showstopper. This production was no different. Love it

  16. Catherine Horowitz says:

    carl anderson would be proud :,)

  17. Vids Max says:

    The song is a mocking song. I vastly prefer the version of this song in the 2000 version. The best Judas is still Anderson followed closely Jerome Pradon in the 2000 version. I think Dixon has a great voice but with this song he is just singing and not the character. Overall I would pput him far behind Anderson and Pradon.

    • Lorrie Pontes says:

      I disagree that this is a mocking song. I believe the character of Judas, even back from death, is expressing doubt all apostles had about the situation they found themselves in. (Listen carefully to the lyrics…) For an interesting take on Dixon’s role; watch his u-tube interview. 🙂

    • corvus13 says:

      Love Pradon’s version.

    • Megan Fregoe says:

      Vids Max Yes I totally agree, Judas in this song is supposed to be mocking jesus, but unfortunatley this is “in concert” so like with the rest of the show most of the character depth was lost. But im going to chalk that up to the directors, the singers did what they could with what the were given, and they did pretty well.

    • Marcia Patterson says:

      For me, this song is that of a honest questioning of what Christ means to him. Judas is speaking for himself, and in that, asking questions many people have. He was totally in the moment and it even came across the screen. Bravo!

    • King Malcolm says:

      People are treating this as an either/or situation. It is both. It is a honest questioning (from Judas), and mocking (from the chorus).

      (edited to try and make myself sound more intelligent, it ain’y really easy ’cause I’m kind of stoned)

  19. Kathy says:

    Grew up in the 70’s listening to this album. I had low expectations for this NBC live version but I thought it was really good. But, for me, Brandon Victor Dixon was the real deal. Just as good as Carl Anderson and Murray Head before him.

    • Annie B says:

      I agree- I grew up listening to the original album, I thought they did an excellent job and this performance was flippin’ amazing! Only disappointment is why did they only sing half the songs?

    • Shawn Pavlik says:

      Half the songs? What did they leave out?

  20. Sheri Peters says:

    BRANDON stole the show. This gave me the chills. I hope he wins an award or two. Then when the skies parted and Jesus went into heaven it was so well done I cried EXCELLENT✨⚡️✨🌟⭐️☄️💥
