Little Mermaid's Sebastian (Shaggy) Reveals the Biggest Challenge of the Show

Shaggy is getting candid about his upcoming performance in The Little Mermaid Live!

The 51-year-old musician spoke to reporters about the role at the Television Critics Association ahead of tonight’s premiere of The Little Mermaid Live! on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.

“To be honest with you, it’s me trying to wrap my head around the whole thing right now because I’m still learning. This is something new, this animation into live. I think it’s just singing the song and making it my own and making it be as entertaining and believable to you. That’s my main thing. That’s where my head is at,” he said.

“With Sebastian, he’s bringing so much positivity. He’s encouraging Ariel. These are things, when you look at your life, you always have these things happen. There’s good and there’s the evil, there’s relationship. Everybody can relate to relationship and love and everybody got that one friend, that one person who’s rooting for them. And that one that has your back and keeps your secrets, or may not.”

Find out how Shaggy portrays Sebastian in the Little Mermaid Live! musical event tonight on ABC at 8 p.m. ET!

“I had done a photoshoot for Disney a few years back where Annie Leibowitz shot me as Ursula. So when this popped up, it was like, OK, a TV production. Alright…once they explained to me the way that they wanted to do it, I thought it was interesting.”

“They’re going to literally show the movie in front of a live audience of at least 500 people. And then when it comes to musical performances, it’s going to cut to the live performance of those songs and then it’ll go back into the movie and the audience will take part in it and be participants in the actual performance of it. They’ll be under the sea with us,” she went on to say.

Graham recently opened up about the experience, as well as how he plans to play Prince Eric, in an interview with Playbill.

“Even though Little Mermaid is in front of a camera, it’s live, so there’s no room for pussyfooting around. You really have to commit,” he explained.

“In the film [Prince Eric]’s such a blank slate; he doesn’t even sing. Getting to learn these new songs and understand his perspective a little more was very cool,” he said.

He also said that the role has inspired him to return to theater.

“For quite a while I’ve felt like something was missing, and I’ve realized that it’s singing, so my sights are definitely set on getting back on Broadway. I’ve been missing it for a long time.”
