The entirre project was amazing. I give Carrie plenty of credit for taking on the challenge but her acting fell short. Great voice though. She was lucky to have more experienced and multi talented co stars in Stephen Moyer, Audra Mcdonald, and the rest beside her. They sang AND
acted the sh*t out of it.

The sheer mendacity displayed above is quite honestly breathtaking. And quite creepy. If anyone would take the time to actually go read the reviews cited, they’d find that they were not at all raving about Carrie. The comments above were cherry-picked (and, in the case of the Hollywood Reporter quote, edited down with the negative remarks removed) to find what little good was actually said in those articles. Don’t believe me? Go check for yourself. The only question is, “Will my comments be similarly altered by this site?”

From the reviews I have read, there is no one raving about Carrie Underwood’s role. The sets were outstanding and the supporting cast was excellent. I think if Carrie would have had acting lesson’s, she could have pulled this off. I know she said she did her best and that’s all she could do. I have to admit at times it was very painful to watch. I’m a huge fan of Carrie’s. I think she’s beautiful and a great singer!

All of the reviews I read accurately warned me of how bad this production was. Is it possible the favorable reviews were bought or bartered for by NBC/Publicists? Hmmmmm….. Seriously, It was painful to watch and I can’t even begin to choose which talent-free performance was the worst.

Without exception, Carrie’s acting was considered to be amateurish and her singing to be “capable”. I have not read a single review where it could be said that the review has fallen “in like” with her, let alone “in love”. Get a grip – and try not to write such misleading (and deluded) headlines!

I LOVED Carrie and the cast was great. Not a single muffed line or music note that I could hear. A wonderful live performance.

It was painful to watch! Carrie cannot act. Andrews sings better than she does. But McDonaks was the Stellar! She should’ve been the Lead!
Stop sugar coating it Hollywood for self promotion motives. Call it lije it is!

Carrie Underwood can sing, but she cannot act. Please don’t attempt it again! It was painful to watch when she was on screen. However, the rest of the cast was excellent. I found myself thinking about Julie Andrews and how truly phenomenal and magical her performance was, as well as Christopher Plummer. Carrie’s portrayal put me in mind of a high school performance… there was absolutely no depth or warmth, nothing. The children out shined her as did anyone who shared the stage with her. Even her singing lacked emotion although she has a beautiful voice. Complete fail.
