It appears that Smash rivals Ivy Lynn and Karen Cartwright will curb their contentiousness at least long enough for a duet in the middle of Times Square — and TVLine has a first look at the entertaining détente.
The set-up for Monday’s episode of the NBC freshman: With Marilyn: The Musical in flux — seeking a high-wattage star, an actual title, etc. — Ivy has returned to the ensemble for Heaven on Earth (which apparently is headlined by guest star Norbert Leo Butz), while Karen is off filming a rather mortifying orange juice commercial. So who can blame the gals for letting loose after a long, hard, demeaning day with a rousing al fresco cover of Rihanna’s “Cheers (Drink to That)”?
That this truce lasts beyond the song’s final refrain is unlikely, alas. As Megan Hilty told TVLine, things between the gals are “going to get really bad, and then they’re going to get really nice, and then they’re go to get really bad again.The only thing you can count on is that it’s going to go up and down!”
Press PLAY below and share your thoughts on the pair’s performance. P.S. I am no stranger to the Mickey Ds in the background, though the service isn’t nearly as quick as the location on W. 42nd Street.
