Video: Condoleezza Rice owns Alec Baldwin in music showdown on '30 Rock'

April 29, 2011|By Luke Broadwater

There was a showdown of epic proportions tonight on "30 Rock." 

Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made her long-awaited appearance on the show and did not disappoint. 

After exchanging barbs with ex-boyfriend Jack Donaghy who's played by Alec Baldwin -- Jack apologized for "drinking with Karl Rove on Valentine's Day" and Rice confessed the identity of her favorite movie: "'Mars Attacks!' is awesome" -- the duo engaged in a music battle. 

It was piano vs. flute and no chords were barred. Rice, an accomplished pianist in real life, emerged the victor. 

We'd hoped Condi would use the "30 Rock" appearance to save the U.S. economy, but saving Jack's wife from North Korean socialism is also a pretty good use of Rice's talents.
