And the Winner of Sound of Music Live Is...
No. It's all wrong. Those fake mountains.The captain is a vampire. And there's only one Julie Andrews. Two minutes was enough #SoundofMusic- Paola (@Paopalinaa) December 6, 2013
But there was one winner in last night's performance: the city of Salzburg, Austria. Home of the Von Trapps, setting of the original movie and now site of thousands of Edelweiss-blasting tour buses and gazebo-worshipping 16-going-on-17-year-olds, Salzburg enjoyed a flurry of love last night.
Many were eager to show off their inner Maria:
#SoundofMusic live was nice, but will never top my run through Salzburg's Mirabell Gardens singing do-re-mi and dancing along the fountain!- Victoria Freile (@vfreile) December 6, 2013

For some, it inspired new interest in traveling to Austria:
Any of my HUE 2015 pals want to go with me to Salzburg to take The Sound of Music tour? I'm feeling more in the mood now! #soundofmusiclive- Caroline Nelson (@cenfuturestar) December 6, 2013
Others piped in from Salzburg, where the Sound of Music is apparently still a hot jam after almost 50 years:
Our hotel in Salzburg plays the Sound of Music on a 24 hour loop. I can see the Alps from my window. Good life.- Meghan (@meghanXrino) December 3, 2013
There was also the inevitable "there's more to do in Salzburg than the Sound of Music":
And finally, more Sound of Music Live bashing -- this time in defense of the real place:
A sound of music movie not filmed in Salzburg is a fraud. Even if Carrie underwood is ridiculously attractive..- Zac (@zpictures) December 6, 2013
So while Carrie Underwood and Vampire Bill may not be winning Emmys, it was a good night for the beautiful city of Salzburg. Which by the way does have more to offer than the Sound of Music, including a wonderful Christmas Market, which is open right now.
