Julie Andrews Didn’t Watch NBC’s ‘The Sound of Music,’ Pray For Her

Presumably because she’s a powerful witch who can see terrible events in the future – I once saw her pull a whole lamp out of a purse. A purse! – Julie Andrews did not watch NBC’s live production of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood because she had a, uh, speaking engagement. Yes, speaking engagement. That’s the ticket! Via Huffpost:

More than 18 million television viewers watched Carrie Underwood perform the role of Maria last week in NBC’s “The Sound of Music Live!”
But Julie Andrews wasn’t among them.
Andrews, who starred in the 1965 Oscar-winning film adaptation of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic, explained, “Alas, I did not (see it). I had a speaking engagement and I couldn’t. But my kids did record it. I’ll get around to it.”

When reached for comment, Carrie Underwood suggested that Julie Andrews read a few verses of scripture. Specifically Genesis 1:1 through Revelations 22:21. “That should probably cover it,” she added.
