The 28-year-old actress took to Instagram and wrote, “Congrats to the cast of @nbchairspraylive on a job well done from myself and the rest of the Hairspray Movie Cast! #SetLife #YouCantStopTheBeat”

Before the airing, Just Jared spoke with Nikki about what she’s currently up to and how she felt about the live show. Nikki did not make an appearance on the show, but two other past Tracy’s (Marissa Jaret Winokur and Ricki Lake) did!

“I’m thrilled that NBC has decided to put out a powerful musical with such a positive message for the country to see at such a pivotal point in our country’s history,” Nikki told JJ.
