Musical Interlude: A salute to the girl groups of the 60's (2009)

 American Idol graduate Carrie Underwood may be known now for singing the theme from Sunday Night Football, but back in 2009, with a couple of Grammy awards under her belt, she headlined her first television special.

For this clip, Carrie is joined by Tony Award winning actress-singer Kristen Chenoweth and Christina Applegate (ex-Married....With Children), who, as Kristen reminds, earned a Tony nomination for "Sweet Charity", to pay homage to the girl groups of the 60's. The medley includes "Be My Baby" (The Ronettes), "Leader of The Pack" (The Shangri-Las), "Then He Kissed Me" (The Crystals), and "Will You Still Love me Tomorrow" (The Shirelles). The only thing keeping them from being triplets in their beehive wigs and pink dresses is that Kristen is the smallest of the three.

Oh, what fun.
