Interview: Celina Smith and Nicole Scherzinger Talk ‘Annie Live!’ & More

Annie Live! is on its way to a TV near you and what better way than to usher in this new remake of a classic than to interview some of the insanely talented cast!

I had the chance to talk with Celina Smith who portrays Annie and Nicole Scherzinger who portrays Grace in the upcoming live television event. The dynamic duo spoke about what it was live rehearsing and working Annie Live!, what nerdy/geeky movie could make a great musical and much more.

Check out the full interview with Celina Smith and Nicole Scherzinger below:

About Annie Live!

“The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow” this holiday season as NBC has found its next live musical event: the beloved seven-time Tony Award-winning hit Annie Live!

Annie Live! features Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson as the musical’s infamous queen of mean, Miss Hannigan. Henson will play opposite Celina Smith in the titular role of Annie. Already a triple threat at the age of 12, Smith was selected in a nationwide casting search and can currently be seen on the series Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan.

The holiday musical event also features Tituss Burgess as Rooster Hannigan, Megan Hilty as Lily St. Regis, Harry Connick Jr. as Daddy Warbucks and Nicole Scherzinger as Grace.
