Leavel talked about the concert in the interview!

"Fasten your seatbelts. You never know with Seth," Leavel said. "It's so thrilling to be able to sing in front of a mic and virtually be able to connect with you in any way, shape, or form. I can't wait."

She went on to talk about what fans can expect, although she says that she never really knows what Seth may throw at her.

"I'll sing some of my greatest 'hit'," she joked. "It's kind of thrilling, we'll segue into stories that I had no idea we were going to discuss, or he'll start playing a song and I'll sing as many lyrics as I know and then riff. But it's always so exciting and it's dangerously funny and wonderful."

Leavel said she has some songs plans, including her two "hits," but Seth has a book of her music and he will choose the majority of the setlist.

When asked about what she's wearing for the performance, Leavel revealed that she had not yet picked out an outfit.

"Do I have to wear pants? I probably have to wear pants. But, do I have to wear shoes?" she said. "I want to be comfortable, I'm in my house!"

Throughout the rest of the interview she talked about what she's been up to since the start of the pandemic, the importance of voting, and more. In addition, Richie walked through highlights of Beth's career, beginning with how she got her start.
