Teri Hatcher must have been desperate to help out with the Idol Gives Back broadcast because the actress, who is best known for her clumsy character Susan on Desperate Housewives, decided to take the stage and sing with Band from TV.

In an opening skit that taped Sunday but aired Wednesday, Hatcher walks in on her Housewives husband James Denton, who plays plumber Mike Delfino, under a bathroom sink with Carrie Underwood. Denton, in boots and a T-shirt, and Underwood, in skinny black jeans and stilettos, look guilty.

“What’s going on?” Hatcher asks.

“Nothing,” they reply in unison.

“Nothing? Well, It doesn’t look like nothing is going on. If you are going to steal my man, then I am going to steal your song,” Hatcher replies. “That’s what I’m doing. I’m going to go steal your song.”

Cut to the stage at Kodak Theatre in Hollywood and Hatcher walks out on stage and performs Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” with Band From TV, which also includes Denton, Hugh Laurie (House), Jesse Spencer (House), Bob Guiney (The Bachelor), Bonnie Somerville (Cashmere Mafia), and Greg Grunberg (Alias).

Tell us: How did Teri Hatcher do? Were you desperate for more? Or should she stick to acting?
