Karen (Katharine McPhee) may not have snagged the lead role in Marilyn: The Musical – yet — but that doesn’t mean she’s staying out of the spotlight. In this clip from the March 12 episode of NBC’s Smash, Karen takes center-stage at a bar mitzvah, where she belts out a solid rendition of Florence + The Machine‘s “Shake It Out” for a crowd of pre-teen whippersnappers.
I went to my fair share of bar mitzvahs back in the day, and I’ve got to say, they all could have used a little Karen Cartwright to sing away the pre-pubescent awkwardness.
Check out Karen’s performance of “Shake It Out” below, and be sure to watch the new episode in its entirety March 12 at 10 p.m. on NBC! You know I’ll be there.
Sorry international members, I couldn’t find a link that’s not NBC. D:
