Carrie Underwood may have not wasted any time raving about the “Sound of Music” live performance on Thursday, Dec. 5, exclaiming she could not feel any more blessed and proud after the performance. But the critics are not in tune to Carrie as they reviewed the “American Idol” winner performance.
Carrie was cast as Maria in the live performance of the “Sound of Music” that aired on NBC late last week. The “Idol” winner then took to Twitter to share her thoughts 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!!!' the star was quoted as tweeting by USA Today.
But it did not take long for the hit singer to absorb the great performance when the reviews started to come in. And they were not very nice to Carrie.
USA Today noted the reviews made by People magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety and the Associated Press. Some of these top online publications described Carrie as “miscast,” while others bashed her acting, disregarding her vocals.
People magazine: Underwood was "miscast."
The Hollywood Reporter: "Carrie Underwood ably belts out the hits — but her acting leaves a hole where this live production's heart should've been."
Variety: Underwood handled the "vocal chores more ably than the acting."
AP: Underwood "sang well as Maria but her acting inexperience was laid bare. She had zero chemistry with her love interest and lacked any intensity or shading. Deer in headlights have emoted more."
Upon reading their reviews, Carrie slammed back at critics, using bible scriptures to send her message across.
"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus," the “American Idol” winner and hit singer said, according to The Hollywood Gossip (THG). "They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25."
Checking out what the scriptures meant, THG noted that Carrie suggested her critics to “rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind."
There are good words bestowed on the singer, too.
According to USA Today, Carrie also received praises from Miranda Lambert, Kathie Lee Gifford, Billy Bush, Brad Paisley, Jill Biden and David Gregory.
Miranda Lambert: "Good luck tonight @carrieunderwood!Gonna curl up on the couch with my gal pals and watch you be amazing as always! #TheSoundOfMusicLive"
Kathie Lee Gifford: "I'm so loving hearing this glorious score on network tv LIVE! How about you?"
Billy Bush: "Bravo @carrieunderwood. This takes huge cajones!"
Brad Paisley: "Go @carrieunderwood go!"
David Gregory: "Watching #SoundofMusic with my three kids. Great music and a unique production. Loving it."
From the Jill Biden parody account: "I'm still working on getting Joe to respond to a whistle. #SoundofMusic"
