THR Live-Blogs Carrie Underwood in 'The Sound of Music'

Watch the live holiday event starring the "American Idol" winner with THR's senior editor Marc Bernardin.

THR's live coverage of The Sound of Music begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

For his part, Bernardin says of the decision to allow him to live-blog this seminal classic: "While I'm not a devotee of the musical, I've seen it a bunch of times. My wife demands that we watch the movie every holiday season. And I've always wondered, 'Why is Maria in a convent to begin with? What was she running away from? What had she done?' "
