Kristin Chenoweth Admits She Was Nervous for 'Hairspray Live'

Kristin Chenoweth poses in front of the Paley Center for Media’s Hairspray Live! exhibit on Friday (April 21) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The Emmy and Tony-winning actress starred in NBC’s production of the musical last year and the show is in contention for several Emmy nominations.

Kristin recently opened up to Gold Derby about being nervous to perform in the live show.

“People think you don’t get nervous, but of course I did,” Kristin said. “On Broadway we get eight times a week to get it right. On film or TV we can cut until we get it right. This was a one-shot deal and was like ‘Dear Lord, please don’t let me drop my baton, don’t let me fall. Let me play the part and be true to the piece without a catastrophe’.”
