Megan Hilty Slays New Bombshell Tune In SMASH

| Filed under: TV NewsUma ThurmanMarilyn MonroeMegan Hilty

They need to stop skirting ’round the OBVIOUS fact that Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty) is the embodiment of Marilyn Monroe, and her pipes are unparalleled as evidenced in this stellar performance of Second-Hand White Baby Grand.

While screen star Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman) can't hack the musical part of musical theatre, she is technically still playing the blonde Bombshell we idolize and adore.

Check out the sneaky peak performance from episode 12 of SMASH (above)!

Which Marilyn team do U support??

    Holy schmoly! That was amazing. Megan was my first Galinda (the "Ga" is silent) in 'Wicked' (I've seen it 8 times since)…. and then I saw her 2 times in '9 to 5'. She is the ONLY reason I'm still tuning in to Smash!

    NICE TONE BUT I DONT SEE HOW THAT'S OUTSTANDING FATBOY… SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF BROADWAY ACTRESSES. SHE'S FAR FROM IDINA MENZEL'S BROADWAY PROWESS AND SINGING ABILITY. AND YES, IVY LYNN IS FAT!!!! IN TEN YRS SHE WILL BE 50 LBS HEAVIER. I SEE IT IN THE GENETICS. WONDER IF HER MOM IS LIKE 200 LBS ALREADY… JUST SAYING.

    to the last two comments, you people are repulsive. she is beautiful and talented and her weight is perfectly normal. just because she's not a size 0 doesn't mean she doens't look sexy as hell. comments like that are some of the many reasons over 24 million people in the u.s. suffer from eating disorders. slow your roll and think before you speak.

    The weight-centered comments are laughable. Marilyn Monroe was not a stick ala Katherine McPhee, and Megan Hilty is beautiful and healthy.

    Hilty has the best mix/belt I have heard in decades on Broadway. Her voice is full, strong, flexible, and she is a wonderful musician. I applaud Smash for giving Hilty this role, and I hope this is the beginning of even bigger things to come for her career.

    Karen aka Katharine McPhee would sound better singing this song!

    Make sure and watch Karen and Dev sing & dance Bollywood on Mondat! Triple threat — can sing, dance, and act!

    Re: ToriLyn – Obesity is actually the number one eating disorder in the US so no need to lash out. Granted she's not actually overweight medically, though Monroe's waist to hip ratio was much more extreme. Personally I think her facial structure is pretty ugly (too masculine in the jawline), but eye of the beholder and all that jazz.

    I can't imagine this was the intention, but Megan Hilty's talent has made her character WAAAAY more interesting than Katherine McPhee's, and she has emerged the star. She's an incredible talent, and her character, while flawed, is more sympathetic by far than that dullard Karen. Katherine McPhee has one facial expression, she's nothing like Marilyn Monroe, and she doesn't have a Broadway sound. She has a good voice but it's kind of boring - a generic pop sound. Her character is a drip and is outshone by most of the other characters. And Megan isn't fat, you twits. She's zaftig, but she's gorgeous. And proportioned - open your eyes.

    P.S. I just looked at that clip again - Megan Hilty is so far from being fat it's ridiculous. Take another look at her! Her stomach is flat, her torso is really quite thin and she has a tiny waist. She just has more of an hourglass shape and her face is roundish as are her features, so it gives the impression of her being bigger (and she has boobs.) But she's actually quite small. It's outrageous for anyone to call her fat and denigrate her for her weight Anyone who does that has their own issues, clearly.

    I really love this show. As a voice teacher I have to say it seems ridiculously obvious that Megan Hilty's vocal and theatrical acting talent FAR surpasses Katherine Mcphee. Mcphee has very little command of the stage, her energy level is very low compared to what is normal for stage acting. That is the only part of the show that I find strange. otherwise, it is superbly acted, and true to life I believe.
