Smash is back on NBC tonight with a 2 hour premiere and you don’t want to skip a single beat of this episode.
The show picks up back in NYC and Bombshell has finished it Boston run. Now they are just waiting for the musical to find a home on Broadway and that will prove to be harder than anyone thought with all of the positive buzz it has.
Some things to look forward to tonight; breakups, new characters, scandals, second chances, apologies, and singing, lots and lots of singing. Music wise there will be a duet with Jennifer Hudson and Katharine McPhee singing On Broadway so spectacularly that you will be running to iTunes to buy it when the music stops, Megan Hilty wows with Don’t Dream It’s Over and Smash’s newcomer Jeremy Jordan will blow you away with his voice.
On that note Jordan plays Jimmy Collins, a bartender whose dream is to write songs for Broadway. His best friend and co-worker Kyle (Andy Mientus) is the Tom to his Julia. And Karen is going to discover these two and try to convince Derek that they are the next best thing. That will be much easier said than done.
Meanwhile Derek is working with Veronica Moore (Jennifer Hudson), who is Broadway’s biggest star. She is going to take a liking to Karen and together they will make beautiful music.
Then there is everyone else who is struggling to decide what to do with themselves as Bombshell awaits its fate.
The show has a different feel than last season and the changes just made me love it even more. And I was already fan who loved every single note of the first season!
