Gwyneth Paltrow: Beyonce Helped Me Prepare for CMAs
Before she made her live singing debut on Wednesday's CMAs, Gwyneth Paltrow relied on few friends in high places for pointers.
"I kind of asked my girl singer friends [for advice]," she told Access Hollywood before belting out the title track to her new drama, "Country Strong." "I asked Faith [Hill] a lot of questions -- and Beyonce, actually, too."
She said she "studied" Beyonce's past live performances to see how she exudes "confidence" on stage.
Said Paltrow, 37, "I'm lucky that I know some singers in real life."
Her performance was well-received.
Miranda Lambert said she did "a great job ... it was awesome. She has a great voice."
Said Entertainer of The Year recipient (CMAs co-host) Brad Paisley: "She looked like she's been doing this her whole life ... when did she find time to go out and learn how to be a singer? I'm floored!"
