Velma Von Tussle (Michelle Pfeiffer) operates the local and extremely white, television show. She feels her daughter Amber (Brittany Snow) is better qualified as she is the prettier one and has he eyes set on the tittle of Miss Hairspray. But Tracy steals the spotlight, while putting the racial tension that exists on the show on hold, when she invites her African American friends to join her on stage. Even mom is proud now.
