Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler Tweet Support For Carrie Underwood During The Sound Of Music Live!
Carrie Underwood can breathe a sigh of relief as she has received an abundance of positive critique from both the celebrity world and fans with the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Cameron Diaz and Kellie Pickler praising the songstress for successfully getting through the Sound of Music Live! which aired last night.
The ‘Blown Away’ songstress took on the role of Maria, made famous by Julie Andrews in the 1965 musical, and was joined by a cast which included Stephen Moyer and Audra McDonald for a live version which was broadcast on NBC last night and while Carrie had previously admitted she was nervous for the show, it seems she had nothing to worry about as she sailed through the marathon three-hour show with flying colours.
Counselor actress Cameron Diaz commended the entire cast for rarely messing up during the live performance, tweeting: “The only live performance on TV I’ve done is SNL. I couldn’t imagine doing #SoundofMusic live for 3hrs. #bravecast #poopingmylederhosen. @AudraEqualityMc @carrieunderwood just made me weep with #climbeverymountain I love spreading the word of #livelovehavenofear.”
She later added: “Habits off to the entire cast/crew of @SoundofMusic Nice work to you all! #pulleditoff #hardtodo #talentedpeeps.”
A bevy of Carrie’s country star peers also chimed in during the event with Miranda Lambert tweeting: “Wow! The Sound Of Music Live was awesome. @carrieunderwood unbelievable! I can’t imagine the work that went into that. Such a talented cast!”
@BradPaisley simply tweeted encouragingly: “Go @carrieunderwood go!” while Kellie Pickler wrote rather flatteringly: “@carrieunderwood Class + Grace + Talented = YOU. #BravoCarrie #PhenominalJob ;).”
A pregnant Kelly Clarkson watched from the comfort of her home along with husband Brandon Blackstock and commented: “@carrieunderwood Y’all did great! Brandon & I just finished watching & what an intense 3hrs that must have been 4 all of y’all! #singinglive.”
Lady Antebellum front lady Hillary Scott also added: “Watching The Sound of Music Live and couldn’t be prouder of my dear friend @carrieunderwood! Unbelievable performance!” Little Big Town tweeted: “Watching @carrieunderwood on the #SoundOfMusicLive Simply incredible. Couldn’t be more impressed.”
Carrie, 30, admitted that she was “proud” of her performance and tweeted after the show: “Glory to God tonight…I couldn’t be more proud. What a tough thing to pull off and we did it! I am so blessed!!!”
