If you’re gonna face a fear in front of millions of people, go big or go home! Blunt went BIG and absolutely crushed it!

The actress was obviously more comfortable in studio, away from the cameras, as she did sing each and every song featured on the Mary Poppins sequels soundtrack.

Mandy Moore is Married

Congrats to our favourite Pearson! Ok, second favourite!! ‘This is Us’ star, Mandy Moore, wed musician Taylor Goldsmith in LA on Sunday.

The wedding was super small scale, inviting only close friends and family for a ceremony held in Moore’s backyard. Some of her on screen family were also in attendance, including fictional husband Milo Ventimiglia (he’s our favourite Pearson, right?), and kids, Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown. Moore’s ex boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama was there too!

The reception was hosted at The Fig House in Highland Park.

After announcing the engagement, Moore said of her upcoming wedding,

“My job allows me to get dressed up, and take pictures, and be the center of attention in a way that makes me slightly uncomfortable. I’ve never dreamed of emulating that in my real life. So I think I’ll probably take the opposite route when it comes to getting married.”

Congrats to the happy couple!
