Mary Poppins obtained some assist from the Backstreet Boys!
Emily Blunt stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, and admits that regardless of signing on to play Mary Poppins in the new Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, she nonetheless has some reservations about singing.
“I think it’s still not a natural thing for me. I find it very nerve wracking to sing in front of people,” she confesses earlier than DeGeneres reveals that she’s put a microphone out for the 35-year-old British actress.
Blunt begrudgingly goes over to the mic, noting, “I just feel a bit exposed.”
DeGeneres then brings out the Backstreet Boys to supply some much-desired backup for Blunt, who declares, “Now I can do it!”
The group then sing a verse from their hit tune, “I Want It That Way,” and have Blunt recite the soulful last lyric. “You left me alone and also you weren’t imagined to!” she exclaims, giving Nick Carter a playful shove.
Blunt, after all, is singing all new songs on the soundtrack of the upcoming musical, which is out on Dec. 19.
