Nick Jonas guest stars on this week’s new episode of Smash. A multi-millionaire child star who just so happens to be good friends with Derek. Not quite as good as he is with Ivy. And Karen is just realizing just how close the two of them are. Unfortunately for her, she’s going to have to get ahead in this business on her own.
The team is looking for the perfect Joe Dimaggio for the show. They think they’ve found it in Michael, a performer who has worked with them in the past. Derek goes to see him perform a weird Bruno Mars theater show. I can’t tell if this is for real or not and I’m more perplexed that no one is laughing.
The competition for the role of Marilyn is heating up. Both Ivy and Karen got callbacks. And now the fun begins. Karen needs to work on her dancing and well, everything else. Ivy has spent a good chunk of her life studying Marilyn. She has the experience, the look, the talent, and a much better voice. I’m trying to figure out why we’re supposed to be rooting for Karen over her.
Here’s a preview of Katharine McPhee ‘Touch Me’ (original song from Ryan Tedder) on Smash. Wow! Hopefully the rest of the season is as good as the premiere episode. This original song sounds great.
