As Kristin Chenoweth prepares to host the Tony Awards on Sunday, she has put herself on vocal rest – dry-erase whiteboard and all – to keep her vocal cords in tip-top shape.

Her awards-night co-host revealed to Seth Meyers on Wednesday, however, that she “can’t stop talking” and that her vocal rest lasted “for about 30 seconds.”

Alan Cumming, 50, told the Late Night host that Chenoweth starts her meetings off with the dry-erase board, segueing rapidly into whispers, her normal speaking voice and then straight-up “screaming.”

The Real Kristin Chenoweth Revealed!

Chenoweth, 46, and Cumming are longtime friends – Cumming produced a documentary in 2007 called ShowBusiness: The Road to Broadway in which Chenoweth was featured for her role as Glinda in Wicked. By the end of filming, the song “Popular” began to drive Cumming – and his husband, Grant Shaffer – up the wall.

The former star of Cabaret has even begun weaponizing “Popular” – he sent Chenoweth after his husband at the red carpet premiere of ShowBusiness, asking her to sing the song right in Shaffer’s face just to annoy him. That’s what friends are for?
