    Default Carrie Underwood to star in NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music

    Friday, November 30th 2012
    The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of WTF




    Clay Aiken, Simon Cowell's furry tit pies and even the original Underwood,Blair Underwood, would make more sense as Maria than Carrie Underwood, but Carrie Underwood's the one who got the starring role in NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the dudes who produce Smash, and NBC announced this morning that American Idol season 4 winner and country star Carrie Underwears will be SANGING to the von Trapp chirruns on NBC next December. NBC's president said this in a statement to Playbill:
    "Speaking for everyone at NBC, we couldn't be happier to have the gifted Carrie Underwood take up the mantle of the great Maria von Trapp. She was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist.”
    First Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, then Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone and now this? What's next? Ruben Studdard as Aretha Franklin (I wish)? Hollywood is truly fucking with our emotions and they love it. But I'm still all for this casting and only because it probably pissed Taylor Swift off. Taylor just threw a mean mug at her cat and pushed away her plate of heart-shaped pancakes with heart-shaped strawberries on them. This is really going to drive Taylor into her Emo phase.Hopefully, NBC country-fies all of their Sound of Music remake by castingBilly Ray Cyrus as Captain von Trapp, Dolly Parton as Mother Superior (I'm serious about that one), the Duggars as the von Trapp children and Kenny Chesney as Elsa.Here's Carrie Underwears singing "The Sound of Music" a few years ago:

    I think she'll do a good job. Of course, NO ONE could ever replace Julie Andrews.

    Yeah, it's painfully apparent she can't take the place of Julie Andrews when you listen to the video, but then I don't think anyone should try. I do like the casting that Michael K came up with though.

    This will look like the Miss Living Hills of Austria pageant if she does it.

    So, who's watching? It's not bad, but Carrie is NO Julie Andrews. The key just feels too low. But, Audra McDonald has a spectacular voice.

    I was going to say the exact same thing. She's no Julie Andrews and I think she's miscast. I do like the casting of the kids so far.

    I honestly think I like everyone BUT Carrie. She just doesn't seem natural and I can't forget for a second that she's acting.

    Me, too, including Stephen Moyer, which surprised me. Carrie is the turd in the punchbowl here.

    Same here about Stephen Moyer. I don't watch his show and I haven't seen him in anything else, but I've kinda got a mini-crush going on right now on him as Georg.

    Agree about Stephen Moyer. Where is this being filmed? Does anyone know?

    I was in a meeting all evening, but tuned in enough to Facebook to read that this didn't exactly go well. I wouldn't have watched it anyway; I've seen the movie eleventy-seven times and this could not have topped the movie IMO.

    When they broadcast the making of TSOM a couple of weeks ago, they said it was on a sound stage in New Jersey.
    Carrie was bad. No emotion. I was embarrassed for her in the scene where she's begging the Captain to love his kids. The others were all good. Moyer surprised me, he was good, but he's no Christopher Plumber *swoon* The reast of the cast were good and the sets were beautiful.
