Finally, someone called her back—"Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen will be making her Broadway debut in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella beginning February 4. She'll be playing Cinderella during a 12-week run.

"It's so hopeful and inspiring," Carly told the New York Times about the famous play. "I've always been one to believe in the impossible, so I relate to [Cinderella's] character completely."

Carly will likely be drawing on some first-hand Cinderella experience for her new role. After Justin Bieber heard "Call Me Maybe" on the radio and tweeted about it in January of 2012, Carly was later signed to Bieber's record label Schoolboy, and the went on to sell over 13 million copies worldwide. "Call Me Maybe" is currently one of the best-selling singles of all time, and it earned Carly two Grammy nominations.
