YOUNG SHELDON Star Calls Singing on Show with Reba McEntire ‘Astonishing’

By Movieguide® Contributor

YOUNG SHELDON star Annie Potts joined the THE JENNIFER HUDSON SHOW, where she opened up about singing with Grammy-award-winning artist Reba McEntire.

Per PEOPLE, “Potts recalled the season 4 episode ‘A Pager, a Club and a Cranky Bag of Wrinkles,’ in which MeeMaw (Potts) discovers June Ballard (McEntire) has trouble carrying a tune while crooning to Patsy Cline’s poignant song ‘Crazy’ and the pair then show off their off-key vocal stylings by singing ‘Islands in the Stream’ during karaoke.”

“The funny thing is they [the show’s writers] wrote [Reba’s] part so that…the idea was that she couldn’t sing,” Potts said.

“She sang off-key, which, if you’re a really good singer, it is very difficult to sing off-key,” she added. “But she just like—I don’t know—went up or down a fifth and stayed there. And it was an astonishing thing.”

“I mean just a measure of how good she is of course. Funny and delightful and sweet and beautiful,” Potts said of McEntire.

The actress also shared what it’s like to work with a cast much younger than her.

“They are like my practice grandchildren before I had grandchildren. They were good starter kids,” she said.

YOUNG SHELDON just wrapped filming the seventh and final season last week.

“Today was our last day of filming @YoungSheldonCBS,” lead Iain Armitage wrote on Instagram. “What a joy, honor and a privilege.”

As cast members contemplate what souvenirs they want to take, Potts is grateful for the memories.

“It’s just incredible that I was walking around the set the other day thinking, oh, that, and then I thought, no, it’s the memories. It’s not an object,” she said. “It’s the feelings that are treasures.”

YOUNG SHELDON series finale will air on CBS on Thursday, May 16.

Movieguide® previously reported:

CBS sitcom YOUNG SHELDON has announced its final season. 

The BIG BANG THEORY prequel will return for season 7 on Feb. 15. The season finale will air on May 16.

Variety reported that the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes resulted in a shorter season than originally planned.

“The season will be shorter than those before it due to the truncated nature of the 2023-2024 scripted broadcast season caused by the writer and actors’ strikes that shutdown Hollywood productions for nearly six months,” Variety stated.
