Carrie Underwood On ‘Sound of Music’ Critics: ‘Mean People Need Jesus’

Carrie Underwood received a ton of criticism, in addition to praise, for her role as Maria Von Trapp in "The Sound of Music Live!" last week. Taking on those who were less than friendly, claiming that she did a horrible job, the "American Idol" winner said some people need Jesus.

"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus," Underwood wrote via Twitter. "They will be in my prayers tonight… 1 Peter 2:1-25."

It's unclear what criticism really ticked Underwood off, but she has opted to look at her role as a challenge that she overcame and completed whether it was stellar or not.

"Glory to God tonight…I couldn't be more proud. What a tough thing to pull off and we did it! I am so blessed!!!"

As previously reported, "The Sound of Music Live!" was a huge success for NBC Thursday night. The special was not only no.1 in the 18-49 demo, but it drew over 18 million viewers.
