Queen Latifah stole the show in Disney’s The Little Mermaid live musical event—and we’re not surprised.

The Oscar-nominated actress lit up our TV screens last night when she took on the role of Ursula in a live special that celebrated the 30th anniversary of the iconic Disney animated film.

She starred in the two-hour live musical event alongside 18-year-old ingenue Auli’i Cravalho (Ariel), rapper Shaggy (Sebastian) and John Stamos (Chef Louis).

And fans agreed.

Did you catch The Little Mermaid?
