One of my favorite things would be musicals - I LOVE musicals!!  But couple musicals with two more of my favorite things, country star Carrie Underwood and True Blood's Stephen Moyer and you can bet I am one giddy girl!

This Thursday, December 5th, NBC will air the musical The Sound Of Music LIVE!  This is a one-time presentation so if you're going to be away from your TV's Thursday night, I would highly recommend setting the DVR!

There is one thing you should know - if you are expecting to see the movie The Sound of Music, you will not.  You will be seeing the actual stage production which is very different than the movie - but nevertheless it is still just as amazing!

Sadly, Carrie Underwood has been receiving "hate tweets" about her role as Maria stating that she will never be Julie Andrews, the original Maria von Trapp in the 1965 movie The Sound of Music.  But what some do not know is that Julie Andrews has already given Carrie 2 thumbs up according to The Belfast Telegraph.

I personally believe that Carrie Underwood is going to be FANTASTIC Thursday night when The Sound of Music airs LIVE on NBC because Carrie is most definitely one of my favorite things!
