Back in May, NBC selected country star and former "American Idol" champion Carrie Underwood to succeed Faith Hill as the voice of the "Sunday Night Football" theme song, "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," beginning with the 2013 NFL season. But that's not to say there wasn't competition for the job.
Talent from across a multitude of NBC platforms, including Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel (from NBC’s “America’s Got Talent"); Joan and Melissa Rivers (from E!’s “Fashion Police”); Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski (from MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”); Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales (from NBC’s “Today”) and Ken Jeong (from NBC’s “Community”), stepped up to put their pipes to the test and audition for the gig. Did any of them show enough to give Underwood a run for her money? Watch above and decide for yourself.
Don't forget to tune into NBC on Thursday, Sept. 5 for the kickoff of the 2013 NFL season, followed by the season's first Sunday Night Football broadcast on Sept. 8.
