Carrie Underwood recently received great praise from the legendary star of stage and screen, Julie Andrews, who spoke up about NBC’s upcoming live broadcast of “The Sound of Music. Julie, who portrayed Maria von Trapp in Robert Wise’s 1965 film opposite Christopher Plummer, gave a thumbs up to the casting of country singer Carrie Underwood in the lead role.

“I think she’s great,” affirmed Andrews who was nominated for an Oscar and a Bafta for her performance as the iconic governess. “It’s going to be the original show, I believe, and I think after 40 or 50 years it’s probably time somebody else had a crack at it.”

The Sound of Music” will be presented as a live three-hour broadcast and will air on December 5 on NBC. Carrie will star in the coveted role of Maria Von Trapp. Acclaimed British actor Stephen Moyer, best known to U.S. audiences for his role as Bill Compton in HBO’s “True Blood, will portray decorated World War I hero Capt. Georg Von Trapp.

Check out this very funny interview of Carrie on the Red Carpet at the Emmy’s.
