I've had a lot of questions about the upcoming musical episode of Grey's Anatomy since the idea's inception. Namely: Will the tunes be original? Who will be singing the songs? And most importantly, how are the numbers going to be worked into the script? Well today I've got a video sneak peek for you that helps with a lot of these mysteries.
First off, we learn the theme of the music: the doctors will sing songs made famous by the show, thanks to iconic scenes. For example, the episode will feature The Fray's "How to Save a Life" and Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars." As for who will be singing, we get a few hints at which of the actors have pipes: Chandra Wilson (Dr. Bailey), Sara Ramirez (Callie), Chyler Leigh (Lexie), Kevin McKidd (Owen), Scott Foley (Henry), and Daniel Sunjata (Eli) will all step into the studio. That doesn't mean that Mere and Der definitely won't be singing, but that's what we know so far. Finally, the cast also reveals how the music will fit into the storyline: the entire episode will be told from Callie's point of view. (Are pregnant women hallucinating now?)
I still can't wait to see how all the pieces fit together when the episode airs March 31. Are you excited for the musical? And what other songs do you think should be included? (I still vividly remember Ingrid Michaelson's "Keep Breathing" when Burke left Cristina at the altar.)
