Earlier today, Vanessa Williams was nominated for an Emmy Award for her portrayal of Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty.

Now, the actress has some more exciting news for fans:

"Our musical episode is back on!," she told William Keck of TV Guide Magazine. "I think it's going to be our 16th episode of the season."

The actress said Hairspray composer Marc Shaiman, who was confirmed to compose songs for a scrapped 2007 musical episode, might no longer be involved.

"The man who does our original scoring will be writing some of the music. I think it's going to be a combination of original material and some really popular pop tunes - similar to Moulin Rouge, pop tunes integrated into a musical show. We're all really excited about. I'm sure Wilhelmina's material will be really biting!"

We can't wait.

Ugly Betty Quotes

Snow is a magical blanket, it hides what's ugly and makes everything beautiful


I've had to say good-bye more times than I may have like, but everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we have to do it - even if it's for the greater good, it still stings. And although we will never forget what we've given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward. What we can't do is live our lives afraid of the next good-bye because chances are they are not going to stop. The trick is to recognize when a good-bye can be a good thing - when it's a chance to start again.
