"Grey's Anatomy" Musical Event Details
Switching things up a bit, the cast of “Grey’s Anatomy” will debut a special treat to viewers later tonight (March 31).
After seven years in the making, the medical drama will air its heavily hyped episode, centering on Tony-winner Sara Ramirez's Callie Torres, who experiences her surgery following a near-death car crash through such songs as Brandi Carlile's "The Story" and Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars."
Ramirez said this about the timing of show's vocal event: "[Creator] Shonda Rhimes and the writers toyed with the idea of having Callie sing spontaneously in a scene [for a long time], and I'm kind of relieved that it never happened before, because it just didn't make sense to me for her character to just sing out of nowhere."
As for what to expect? Grey's Jessica Capshaw divulged to press, "[Viewers] get the idea of us in scrubs, snapping our fingers down a hallway like West Side Story, but that's not what it's like at all. We had the read-through and people were blown away -- there were tears and goose bumps. By the end of it, all of us were like 'I hope it's fantastic, I think it's fantastic!'"
You can catch the stars in full song and dance when the episode airs tonight at 9pm est on ABC.
