Posted: Updated:

Ever hear the singing chicken? Megan Hilty indulges Steve and Lisa Wednesday morning on Good Day LA with it...and words cannot begin to describe it! The actress is performing Friday night in Hollywood and talked about her double life as an actress and a singer.

"I like to keep it different so it's great that my day job, I get to do "Sean Saves the World" and then at night I get to do concerts and on the weekends...I'm Mrs. Gallagher, life's good."

Megan is also a newlywed, getting married about 2 weeks ago. What kind of extravagant wedding did she have? One with 20 people.

"It was just our immediate family, they all came to Vegas."

So what's it like being married?

"Not much is different I just, I really like introducing him as my husband, it just feels right."

Steve asked her about her last series, "Smash". Despite strong reviews it only lasted two season.

"We had two good years...you just never never know. All you know is that at some point the show will end so you just kinda enjoy it while you can."

Lisa and Megan also poke fun at Steve for his first question to her: "Is that real hair we're looking at?"

Megan will be singing Broadway, American and pop standards, as well as songs from her debut album, "It Happens All The Time" Friday night. She'll play two shows at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood.
