Kelly Woo over at Yahoo News...I know, shoot me now, reported in her online article that Robert Greenblatt from NBC Entertainment (now there's an oxymoron) said...
Maria von Trapp "was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist"
Ummmm....excuse me? Mr. Greenblatt, may I introduce you to Julie Andrews?
Take a listen....
Miss Underwood is, I am sure, a wonderful person and appears to have made a name for herself among the music industry, however, in comparison to the voice of Julie Andrews, well, there just isn't any way to compare the two.
I only wonder if Blake Shelton will be reprising the role of Captain von Trapp.
Somethings should never be re-made.

All I want for Christmas is for NBC to not touch this movie. Never ever. Like Ever.
