Pop star Lady Gaga took on a medley of songs from The Sound of Music Sunday night (Feb. 22) on the Academy Awards. Her performance was intended to celebrate the film’s 50th anniversary, and of course the Internet immediately fell in love with it.
Deservedly so, but that’s not exactly how things turned out for Carrie Underwood when she starred in NBC’s live TV remake in 2003. That whole show was panned, although I’m not sure it was Underwood’s singing that did it.
Here are Underwood’s versions of the same Sound of Music songs Gaga sang at the Oscars:
“My Favorite Things”
“The Sound of Music”
Who do you think sang it better?
