I'm really happy about this but does anyone think it is odd being that the show wasn't nominated for Best Musical?

I think she gets one minute of pre-recorded time as do A CATERED AFFAIR and YOUNG FRANK.

im really happy that she gets to do it, i think she has a beautiful voice

i think she probably gets to because the show got nominated for best score?!

I guess she'll do a portion of the song? It's fairly short, but it's more than one minute.

Perhaps she'll do the reprise, that would easily fit into the time spot.

And she'll be performing (in costume) on LIVE WITH REGIS & KELLY tomorrow morning: Monday June 9, 2008 at 9am EST.

Bad news, though... Mario Lopez will be co-hosting with Kelly Ripa. re: Sierra Boggess to perform at Tonys...

Aw yay! She was really fantastic when I saw her.
I kind of wish they had her do "Beyond My Wildest Dreams" instead.

"i think she probably gets to because the show got nominated for best score?!"

She gets to sing it because the 4 best musical noms are complete unknowns to the rest of America and CBS flat out told them to find a way to get Little Mermaid and Young Frankenstein on the show for ratings.

BrianS, amen to that. America needs known names; advertisers want known names. Not to say that the other four are "no names," but c'mon, if you're not well-versed on the theatre world, then that's that.

I hope sometime soon, televiewers can see "If Only," which I really like from Mermaid.

I wish The Little Mermaid would choose other songs to put on tv.....Part of Your World has been on a few things already.

Also...where did anyone hear that YF is performing at the Tonys?

Well, Part of Your World is easily the best-known song in the show. And perhaps one of the favorite film score songs of a lot of people out there.

I think the less they show that ugly, tacky production to the public, the better for their sales.

I would have to disagree...Under The Sea is the best known song.

Have you seen clips from Under The Sea? They really shouldn't show Under the Sea.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention...I'm the good cop, he's the bad cop.

Good for Sierra. She deserves to perform.
I love her in this show.
Can't wait to see what she does next.
