Carrie Underwood to Mean People: Find Jesus!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Sound of Music on NBC is over.

But the sounds of critics across the online universe continue to grow louder.

Following a live stage performance of this iconic musical Thursday night, Carrie Underwood took Twitter on Friday and responded to those who have lashed out over her portrayal of Maria.

"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus," the former American Idol champ wrote.

"They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25."

This Bible scripture states to "rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind."

Many viewers felt the country singer was over her head in the role that will forever belong to Julie Andrews, despite her considerable vocal stylings.

On the flip side, a live, TV stage version of the Sound of Music was almost destined to draw unflattering comparisons to the iconic motion picture.

In any case, reactions were mixed at best, and Carrie's praying for the haters.

Kym Karath, who played young Greta von Trapp in the 1965 film, was one of many who slammed the NBC rendition, Tweeting during its airing:

"Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer. Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch...."

"Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong."

Many agreed. No one can question Underwood's singing voice, or virtues as a human being, but she isn't a seasoned actress and it showed at times.

Did you tune in for the Sound of Music special? What did you think?

CARRIE AND THE REST OF THE CAST WERE GREAT, THIS WAS LIVE PERFORMANCE, I THOUGHT IT WASDOE BEAUTIFULLY , INA LIVE PERFORMANCY THERE ARE NO OUTTAKES LIKE A MOVIES , THAT IS WHY DOING IT LIVE TAKES A BETTER PERFORMANCE, AND IS MORE FUN TO WATCH. CARRIE AND HERCAST DID GREAT. MOST OF THE PEOPLE COMMENTING PROBABLY COULDNT REMEMBER TWO LINES OF A SCRIPT. LET THEM BE THE FIRST TO THROW THE FIRST STONE ? FOR ME THIS WAS BETTER TV THAN NINETY PERCENT OF WHAT IS AVALIABLE TODAY. INCLUDING THE MOVIES. WE LOVE YOU CARRIE.

Carrie Underwood Quotes

I feel more beautiful when I see the pictures after. I'm like, 'I wish I had felt like I looked like that when I was actually there.'

I’m content with 90 percent of me. I like my teeth. Sometimes I wonder if my orthodontist realizes how important he was.
