    And after a sneaky snippet of Ariana filming hit the internet, there's been speculation that she's not actually singing in the movie.

    Apparently, some people who watched the vid believed that the film was using vocals from Kristin Chenoweth, who played Glinda the Good Witch on Broadway.

    While the clip from the set did show Ariana lip syncing (which is totally normal for a movie), Kristin says the vocals definitely belong to Ariana.
