Maren Morris has made good on her desire to audition for "Wicked."

The Grammy winner has made an audition tape for the beloved Broadway musical, in which she sings a portion of "The Wizard and I," a solo number sung by the character Elphaba.

Standing in front of a backdrop, Maren lets her vocal chops fly as she sings, "And I've just had a vision/Almost like a prophecy/I know it sounds truly crazy/And true, the vision's hazy."

"The THEATRE dah-ling IS JUMPING OUT," the country singer captions the audition, along with a green heart emoji, adding, "prepping for this audition is harder than I thought."

She goes on to discuss the technicality of the vocal range required for the character, noting how Elphaba's songs transition from falsetto to full voice, often while singing the same word.

"It’s very technically skilled and I can do it, but the idea of 8X a week is daunting!" Morris admitted. "As a singer of my own music, I can belt, but rarely."

Morris revealed earlier this month that she was interested in auditioning for the acclaimed musical that chronicles the story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch from "The Wizard of Oz."

"Wicked" is currently being adapted into a feature film starring Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo.
