All the Performances - THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE! Starring Carrie Underwood on NBC

Tonight's the night! The Hills sang across the country tonight when NBC aired its live television special of The Sound of Music. Check out all the performances from the special live production below!

Starring country music star Carrie Underwood as 'Maria,' the cast features Audra McDonald ("Private Practice"), who has won five Tony Awards and two Grammys, as Mother Abbess; Stephen Moyer ("True Blood"), who will play Capt. Georg von Trapp; Tony Award winner Christian Borle ("Smash"), who will portray von Trapp family friend Max Detweiler; and Tony winner Laura Benanti ("Go On"), who will portray Elsa Schrader, the captain's one-time fiancee.

"The Sound of Music," set in the 1930s before and during "Anschluss" when the Nazi's annexed Austria, is based on the romantic true story of Maria von Trapp, an aspiring nun who leaves the abbey to become a governess for the widower Capt. von Trapp's seven children. She soon finds herself falling in love with her employer and questioning her religious calling. It premiered on Broadway in 1959 where it broke box-office records and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The 1965 film adaptation won the Oscar for Best Picture.



























general verdict: carrie's singing was okayish but her acting wouldn't have even qualified her for the lead in a high school drama club play. vampire beel was somewhat better. broadway queens audra mcdonald and laura benanti saved the day and julie andrew's legacy remains wholly unthreatened as expected by all
