It certainly takes guts to take on the role of Maria von Trapp in The Sound of Music. Following Julie Andrews’ Oscar-nominated performance is no easy task. Now you can judge Carrie Underwood’s Maria for yourself, thanks to this “trailer” NBC has released. As NBC will be broadcasting The Sound of Music live, it’s not really a trailer so much as it is recorded rehearsal footage, but you get the point. You get a preview of Underwood singing “My Favorite Things” and, of course, “The Sound of Music.” Stephen Moyer’s voice, however, is completely absent from this clip. There is also nowhere near enough Audra McDonald and Laura Benanti.
The Sound of Music airs live on NBC on Dec. 5.
