The 33rd season of The Simpsons begins with music, while Marge wants to stage a show from the first episode… For the occasion, Kristen Bell, already appeared in the 27th season, returns to service to give voice. If she does not play a character strictly speaking this time, she lends her stamp to Marge in the sung scenes.
Nothing surprising since the actress is notably the interpreter of Anna in the original version of Snow Queen. Known for the title role of Veronica MarsKristen Bell had already been able to reveal her talents as a singer in the series with a cover of the tube One Way Or Another, from Blondie!
The world is sometimes small in Springfield… In the double episode A Serious Flanders, Cristin Miliotithe famous “mother” of How I Met Your Mother, plays Barb Belfry, a pious woman (but not too much!) at the head of the Saint Giles orphanage.

In this same episode, Christine Baransky makes a short appearance as himself and performs the song Dancing Queen under the amazed eyes of Smithers. The star of The Good Wife and The Good Fight indeed embodies Tanya Chesham-Leigh, best friend of Donna Sheridan (Meryl Streep), in Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. A nice wink!
