The pair sang "I Know Him So Well" from the musical Chess, in which Paige originally starred in and sang this very song. They performed on the TV show All Star Musicals, a show where seven celebrities are trained in the ultimate musical theatre masterclass and will hope to impress a West End audience.

She received an Emmy Award for her role in Pushing Daisies, a Tony Award for You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown and was also nominated for her original role of Glinda the Good Witch in the Broadway smash-hit Wicked.
