Yep. The haters were out in force during NBC’s “The Sound of Music Live!” Ms. Underwood tweeted her thanks to her fellow cast mates, and to God, the night the show aired:
Glory to God tonight…I couldn't be more proud. What a tough thing to pull off and we did it! I am so blessed!!!

This Twitter user summed it up:
@JohnStamos And yes, nowadays it seems like people hope for failure rather than recognizing how much talent is truly involved. Sad. 🙁

Haters gotta hate. The rest of us will just enjoy the magic.
