The live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid” is finally here. Fans got to see Melissa McCarthy portray Ursula, the sea witch, and hear her rendition of the character’s iconic song, “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” On Sunday Willie Geist asked McCarthy if it was “nerve-wracking” to showcase her singing skills in the movie. She said, “When I got it, and I knew I was doing it, then it was, like, What have you done? Like, what have you possibly done? I have to try to sing perfectly.” She had to overcome that mindset to get comfortable with the character. Her vocal coach challenged her perfectionist attitude bluntly. McCarthy said, “I don’t know how to do things if it’s not in character. And he’s like, Singing is the same thing. And then it made sense to me. I don’t know how to do something in any area perfectly, but I can do it in character.” Doing things in character has always been a comfortable feeling for McCarthy. When she took on the role of Ursula, the “Bridesmaids” star channeled the legendary drag queen Divine as well as her own drag alter ego, Miss Y, for the role.
