You may remember Brandon Victor Dixon as the actor who addressed Mike Pence during a performance of Hamilton back in 2016, but now we have another reason to bow down to him thanks to his brilliant portrayal of Judas during NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live!. The musical, which aired Sunday night, had just about everyone taking to Twitter to share some hilarious and not-so religious opinions about Jesus Christ and the muscular characters, but Dixon stood out as a shining star, and it's not just because of his fashion choices. Fans were left with their jaws on the ground during his final performance of "Superstar." Watch the video and see when our spiritual and glitter-filled awakening took place.

So Brandon Dixon gave the Hamilton cast speech to Mike Pence, played an amazing Judas and topped it all off with the Wakanda salute. #JesusChristSuperstarLive— Selen Neil (@Selenneal) April 2, 2018
