Delightful from Start to Finish
This program was the most uplifting thing I've experienced in the months since the coronavirus pandemic overtook the airwaves. I recorded it and was prepared to delete it without watching. I figured it would be corny or homely. I haven't seen many of the recent animated films either but I decided to check it out before clicking that X. I'm so glad I saved it because it's just what I needed- what we all need at this time. The opening number with Derek Hough, girlfriend Hayley and sister, Julie was just amazing! That song alone is worth watching over and over. I didn't sing along because I was so mesmerized by the choreography. Their singing and dancing was at a whole other level. It seemed like an impossible act to follow however it was enough to make me want to stick around for the rest. Other celebrities sang their favorites and I felt like I was a kid again surrounded by my loving large family. Little Big Town, Ariana Grande, Luke Owens, Josh Gad and Auli'i had memorable sing-a-alongs too. It's obvious that everyone involved in this program put a lot of thought and time into getting this just right. I'm rewatching it right now and it just makes me smile. It's a whole lot of happy. I'm not sentimental by any means however this show reduced me to a little puddle of happy. I highly recommend this show if you need a pick-me-up.
