    I had zero interest in The Sound of Music before hearing Carrie was cast last year. And wow, what an awesome show! I expected to be a little bored at times because I'm not totally into theater, but I was glued to the tv! I really enjoyed all the music and especially Carrie's scenes with the kids and Audra. I've read some negative comments on another site, and I don't understand why people can't just sit back and enjoy the show. In art there is no "right" way to do anything. It's all subjective. I felt a lot of the things I heard Carrie critiqued for actually contributed to the believability of her character. She was an innocent, somewhat naive young woman that wasn't always sure of herself. Of course she's not going to carry herself like a CEO of a corporation.

    Whew. Good to get that out.

    Since we all know we loved Carrie, what else did you guys like about the show? I thought Kurt was great—man he hit that high note perfectly!

    I will be interested to see the ratings? I just think they are going to be very good. Fingers crossed that even the haters watched! :-). Hate all you want, I won't read you anymore...but will take the additionally viewership numbers you provide.

    So far I think @carrieunderwood's doing GREAT. I knew if she could host with @BradPaisley she could handle Nazis & Live TV musicals.

    Pretty good review from the NY Daily News: ?The Sound of Music Live!? review - NY Daily News

    I'm happy with these reviews for the most part. It's been mixed but that's what I was expecting.

    I like this comment:

    We thought the show was really good! Our only problem was the music. The orchestra sounded as though they were right in front and almost drowned out a lot of the singing! We didn’t hear the white noise that a lot of people did.
    As for Carrie Underwood not having “chemistry” with the Baron, maybe she read Maria’s book. Maria stated that at first she only liked the Baron and married him because she loved the children and also was told that God wanted her to do that. She grew to love him very much but not at first.
    We enjoyed the production, especially Audra McDonald. I looked online to see who was playing that part for sure. Carrie Underwood isn’t the only one to have unreasonable hatred! I couldn’t believe some of the things being said about this beautiful singer!!
    I hope they are encouraged to do more live theater!

    I haven't seen any videos yet... but a friend living in the US said she loved it and it was beautiful... she's not a fan of Carrie, a critique or a fan of SOM (but she saw the movie)... This shows that for a normal person, it was GREAT! Can't wait to see it...

    I also think people are not only trying to compare Carrie to Julie, but to the Maria that Julie created... So maybe to others, Carrie's acting is not that good since it did not live up to how Julie portrayed Maria... but who knows? Maybe they intended for Carrie to act that way since they wanted to show a different Maria.. a shy and awkward one that is very similar to Carrie's personality just like Audra said ("she is kind of like Maria")... But well.. I really haven't seen it yet (poor international working fans)... But from people's reaction, I believe Carrie further solidified her status as a SUPERSTAR, EXCELLENT VOCALIST, and LEGEND-IN-THE-MAKING.. Happy for Carrie to be a part of TV History by leading the first Live TV Musical in 50 years!!! For something that is experimental, this is an AMAZING achievement... CONGRATS to all the CAST and CREW!!! can't wait to see this soon!!!

    I haven't had a chance to comment but I have to say, I enjoyed every minute of the show! The vocals were amazing! Audra and Carrie, I think I could just listen to the two of them sing for the rest of my life and be happy... acting wise, I thought Carrie was really good.. a little uneven and yea, at times, she seemed like she was reading but what an improvement in that department.. there were several scenes that were brilliant.. I can't even imagine how hard it was to do 3 hours of live tv... and they alllllll pulled it off! WOW... I will be watching this over and over.. I am so very proud of Carrie... I am having a hard time with all the mean stuff people are saying but I think I'm just going to try to ignore it.. I may need help with that.. lol

    Sorry for the consecutive posts lol. Found an interesting comment at Broadway.com message boards:

    Damn....she can act when she sings.....just not when she talks. So frustrating, because it's "there"....just not tapped.

    Agree or disagree?

    ^ agree, Carrie's acting in the scenes without music were a little stiff.But I also agree it's there - you could see it in the scene with the Capt. when she tells him about his children.She just needs more experience and some acting lessons to bring out her full potential.
