John Legend is gearing up for the role of a lifetime and we have your first look!

NBC dropped the first promo for the live television production of "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert," which taps the "All of Me" singer in the role of Jesus Christ himself.

Recording artists Alice Cooper and Sara Bareilles also appear in the promo; Cooper joins as King Harod while Bareilles appears as Mary Magdalene.  

The live musical debuts on Easter Sunday, April 1 and by the looks of it, aims to be very intense. 

Will you be tuning in?
