This is a mildly Ozzy clue, in that Williams played Glinda in Oz the Great and Powerful. Diana, the defending champion, rang in first and correctly responded, "What is Cabaret?" She then stayed in the category, and selected the $1200 clue, which proved to be really Ozzy:

She originated the role of Elphaba in Wicked.

Diana rang in first again and correctly replied, "Who is Idina Menzel?" (Thank goodness she didn't say "Who is Adele Gazeem?") Diana went on to dominate the game and defended her title in a runaway.
