Carrie Underwood fans get their most significant preview yet of the country superstar rehearsing to play Maria von Trapp in the live production of The Sound of Music , thanks to a series of YouTube videos just released by NBC.

The clips offer snippets of many of the familiar songs from the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” the title song, and “Edelweiss,” performed with True Blood star Stephen Moyer , who plays Captain von Trapp.

“Carrie’s great. She obviously sings beautifully, we know that,” he says. “But she’s doing a great job of bringing this character to life.” 

The American Idol winner says she believes she’s actually much like Maria in real life. “Maria and I actually share a lot in common,” she reflects. “She’s a very faithful woman, which I feel like I am as well. She loves singing, she just loved being free.”

The Sound of Music airs live December 5, “in front of the entire universe,” in Carrie’s words, at 8 p.m. ET.
