In response to the pleas of numerous NBC Smash fans, Debra Messing has confirmed on the Golden Globes red carpet that her songwriting character, Julia, will sing an original song in season 2! When not revealing season 2 details, Messing and her costars graced the red carpet in dresses of fabulous colors and makes.
Access Hollywood interviewed the red-headed beauty on the Golden Globes red carpert Sunday night, where she stated, “I am singing this season. I’m gonna be singing an original song written by my character.”
Fans of Smash will be excited to know that she is singing an original song, given the high quality of some other original Broadway tunes in season 1. “Let Me Be Your Star” and “Don’t Forget Me” anyone?
You may recall Julia’s songwriting partner Tom (Christian Borle) singing the song “Don’t Say Yes Until I’ve Finished Talking” in replacement of Bombshell‘s Mr. Zanuck. Julia did get to sing a little bit during “Never Met a Wolf Who Didn’t Love to Howl,” but it was mainly an ensemble piece, meaning it was hard to distinguish her voice amongst the rest. Listen to “Never Met a Wolf” from season 1 below.
Smash was up for a Golden Globe for Best Television Series Comedy or Musical, but lost out to Girls. Some members of the cast that were present were Debra Messing (Julia), Katharine McPhee (Karen), and Megan Hilty (Ivy). Check out their looks in the viewer below.
Who looked the best? Do you think McPhee’s plunging black dress worked better than Messing’s conservative one? And how well did Hilty pull off her red ensemble? Chime in in the comments below!
