Ariana Grande briefly stole the 2024 Super Bowl spotlight on Sunday night (Feb. 11) when the first-look trailer for her highly anticipated upcoming film Wicked debuted on TV.

The trailer sees Grande make her official debut as Glinda the Good Witch alongside co-star Cynthia Erivo's Elphaba, a.k.a. the Wicked Witch of the West from the iconic Wizard of Oz franchise.

Grande's Glinda is all pink and glitter as she dazzles in a series of candy-colored costumes in the trailer, her bleach-blonde hair a stark contrast to her signature brunette ponytail.

Though Grande doesn't unveil her singing voice in the trailer, her character sings a number of songs in the Tony-winning Broadway musical, including "Popular," "One Short Day" and "Thank Goodness."

The role has been a long time coming for Grande, who made her Broadway debut as a teen in 13.

A longtime Wicked fan, the Sweetener star performed "The Wizard and I" during a 2018 event celebrating the show's 15th anniversary.

She has also long counted Glinda as one of her dream roles, something she's been vocal about on social media for years.
