Kelly Clarkson - Carrie Underwood Wins Praise For Sound Of Music Show

Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert and Hillary Scott are among the stars who have sent messages of congratulations to Carrie Underwood following her successful turn in a live Tv production of The Sound Of Music.

The country star took on the role of Maria, made famous by Dame Julie Andrews in the 1965 film, for a live Tv performance of the musical, which aired in the U.S. on Thursday night (05Nov13).

Underwood's famous friends and fans subsequently took to to praise the singer for her star turn, with Clarkson writing, "Y'all did great! (My husband) Brandon & I just finished watching & what an intense 3 hrs (hours) that must have been 4 (for) all of y'all! Singing live."

Lambert adds, "Wow! The Sound Of Music Live was awesome. Carrie Underwood unbelievable (sic)! I can't imagine the work that went into that. Such a talented cast!" and Scott concludes, "Watching The Sound of Music Live and couldn't be prouder of my dear friend Carrie Underwood! Unbelievable performance!"

Actress/singer Anna Kendrick also sent a message, along with country star Brad Paisley, while Underwood herself wrote 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 show, which also starred Stephen Moyer and Audra MCDonald, won mixed reviews from critics, with many claiming Underwood's lack of acting experience let the production down.

Marc Bernardin of The Hollywood Reporter writes, "Underwood can deliver the songs... she doesn't acquit herself so well when it comes to the carrying the emotional weight of the production... Underwood nails the look of a virginal almost-nun, but goes no deeper than that. Blank stares and placid smiles."

Variety's Brian Lowry adds, "The Sound of Music Live!, even if the actual production too often felt as lifeless as those alpine backdrops. Part of that has to do with mounting a stage production on Tv... and part the casting, with Carrie Underwood handling the vocal chores more ably than the acting."
