VIDEO: 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 7 Musical Episode
It looks like ABC's hit show, Grey's Anatomy, will be taking some notes from Glee one week after it returns from its mid-season break. Creator Shonda Rhimes decided to do a musical episode that showcased some of the prominent songs that were made famous by the show. Among the songs that will be featured are "Chasing Cars," "Cosy in the Rocket," and "Breathe (2AM)."
With two ex-Broadway stars, Chandra Wilson (Miranda) and the Tony-winning Sara Ramirez (Callie), among the cast, Grey's Anatomy is in a perfect position to embark on such a project. Other cast members weren't initially so excited about the undertaking, however. Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) expressed her misgivings on Tuesday's Ellen. "When Shonda presented the idea, of course I did my eye roll and the 'Oh, brother' that comes along with it. And then we read it and I have to say, I think people are going to love it."
Pompeo also sings in the episode, though she wants to make it clear that she "didn't have a choice," and that Ramirez "does the bulk of the singing." The musical episode will air on March 31. —KIMBERLY STEELE
