Be careful what you wish for…
That's because while promoting Hairspray Live! at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday, Penny Pingleton herself flat out said participating in the NBC musical was "way much more fun" than her pop star career!
In fact, the 23-year-old singer — who got her start in Jason Robert Brown's 13 on Broadway before moving over to Nickelodeon — actually wants her role in the live TV musical to be understated, saying:
We've sure got a lot to look forward to in the future as Hillary Clinton was officially declared the Presidential nominee for the Democratic Party on Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention!
While there were plenty of inspiring moments from last night's event, including Bill Clinton's touching speech and Alicia Keys' performance, one of the most unforgettable ones was the video a TON of celebs made singing Rachel Platten's Fight Song in the style of Pitch Perfect!
Of course, there was no one more appropriate to lead the group than Pitch Perfect 2's director Elizabeth Banks as she was joined by Mandy Moore, Aisha Tyler, Jaime King, Jane Fonda, Connie Britton, Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, America Ferrera, and Eva Longoria.
